Whether you’re relaxing on the weekend or having a group for breakfast, no one likes to stand over the stove making traditional pancakes. It takes time and everyone is like a vulture watching over you while their pancakes are cooking. We all know that patience is the key to perfect pancakes and who can be patient when everyone is waiting for the bubbles to pop.
Your problem is solved with sheet pan pancakes. An easy homemade pancake batter is poured into a sheet pan, you can add whatever toppings you want and then it’s baked. Still the great pancake flavor, the only thing missing is the round shape. Light and fluffy hassle free pancakes.
Trust me you don’t need a pancake mix, it takes such a few ingredients to make delicious fluffy pancakes, that I’m confident you have what it takes in your pantry. You only need flour, baking powder, sugar, milk, eggs and butter and whatever delicious toppings you can come up with.
Why should you make pancakes in a sheet pan
- All portions turn out perfect, and evenly cooked
- No standing over the stove waiting on pancakes to cook
- All the pancakes are done at the same time, no one watching over your shoulder wondering when their pancake will be ready.
- You can customize the sheet pan with different fillings
- You can enjoy your favorite morning beverage while they’re baking
How to make the BEST oven baked sheet pan pancakes
Step 1: Spray a rimmed 9 x 13 inch quarter sheet pan with cooking spray and preheat the oven to 425º, it needs to be hot.
Step 2: Whisk together the dry ingredients and then whisk in the wet ingredients. Choose what you want to put inside. If just one ingredient then fold it in. If you are adding multiple ingredients, spread the batter in the pan and push the toppings into the batter.
My gang all has their favorite add ins, so I put chocolate chips on 1/3, and different berries on the rest. Add anything that you would add to your traditional pancakes.
Step 3: Bake until golden brown.
Step 4: Cut into squares, serve everyone at the same time. Top with butter, powdered sugar or maple syrup and enjoy a stress free breakfast.
What if your baking pan is too big
Don’t have a 9 x 13 inch quarter sheet pan, you can take a piece of aluminum foil and fold it several times to make a divider in the pan that you have.
