How to make Sheet Pan Pancakes
Spray a rimmed 9 x 13 inch quarter sheet pan with cooking spray and preheat the oven to 425º, it needs to be hot.
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’re 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 ⅓, and different berries on the rest. Add anything that you would add to your traditional pancakes.
Bake until golden brown.
Cut into squares, serve everyone at the same time. Top with butter, powdered sugar or syrup and enjoy a stress free breakfast.

Cassie L says
This is what I’ve been looking for. You mention creating a divider if the pan is larger than 9 x 13. I need to feed a crowd of 10 … can I double the recipe and use the bigger pan?
Barbara Curry says
Yes, you can double this if you have a bigger pan.
