What are Sheet Pan Pancakes?

As much as we love pancakes and homemade waffles, they’re difficult to feed a crowd as you need to make them one by one. Sheet pan pancakes are simply pancake batter baked up into a fluffy pancake on a sheet pan. It is cut into squares to serve.

  • Make sheet pan pancakes for a crowd so the whole meal is ready at once.
  • Measure out the dry ingredients and wet ingredients the night before and simply mix them together the day of.
  • Because sheet pan pancakes rise up so fluffy, they are perfect for all kinds of mix-ins!
  • For a special birthday breakfast or brunch, and top with Whipped CreamStrawberry Sauce, and colorful sprinkles!
  • Add healthy mix-ins like chia seeds, a dose of vanilla protein powder, or some flax meal without changing the texture.

Ingredients

BATTER: Pancake batter is like our favorite fluffy pancakes in sheet pan form. This recipe uses all purpose flour, eggs, baking powder, soda, milk, vanilla, a smidge of salt, and a handful of blueberries. The milk and lemon juice can be substituted with buttermilk if you have it on hand.

Ensure the eggs and milk are room temperature so the melted butter mixes in well.

Add-Ins & Toppings

  • Add chopped walnuts, chocolate chips, toffee pieces, dried fruit, bacon bits, or swirl in some fruit preserves. The possibilities are endless!
  • Top with warm maple syrup or Caramel Sauce, a few spoonfuls of preserves, whipped cream, chocolate or Homemade Blueberry Sauce. Some sliced berries or bananas are also a great option!

How to Make Sheet Pan Pancakes

No need to fry pancakes on the griddle or get the kitchen all smoky, just follow a few easy steps to pancake perfection:

  1. Whisk dry ingredients and wet ingredients (except the butter) in separate bowls. Fold the dry into the wet and then stir in the butter.
  2. Scrape batter onto a prepared baking sheet and bake (as per the recipe below) until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  3. Cool and cut into desired sized pieces and serve.

Perfect Pancakes Every Time!

  • Don’t overmix the batter, it should be moist but a little bit lumpy.
  • For the fluffiest pancakes ever, let the batter rest for about 3 minutes before spreading into the baking sheet. This allows the baking powder and baking soda to activate a little more, creating air bubbles.
  • If using fresh or frozen fruit, toss it in a small bag of flour until they are coated. This helps keep the fruit from sinking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Use large, room temperature eggs that will create maximum rising and fluffiness during the baking process.
  • It is important to use the correct size of baking pan so the batter doesn’t overflow or isn’t too thin.
  • The pancake is done when a toothpick comes out clean.

  1. Turned out perfect! I was skeptical about the amount of baking powder but nah! Just so great! I didn’t have fruit so I went with peanut butter and three berry jam swirled in the batter! Family of 6 well fed! Thanks so much!5 stars

    1. I haven’t tried it but I can’t see why not. You’ll have to adjust the cook time slightly. Let us know how it goes!

  2. Hi Holly,

    This sounds like a great recipe, but I’m not sure if you mean to use extra large eggs or large eggs, because in the recipe ingredients it says large, but in the Notes it says extra large?
    Thank you for all your great recipes!!

    Christine
