I’m always looking for ways to get breakfast and dinner on the table faster and these Sheet Pan Pancakes might just be my new best friend! Not only are they easy to whip up, but they’re super convenient. You can pour the entire pancake batter on one baking sheet and top it with your favorite toppings, or leave it plain and let everyone add their own toppings after it bakes. What I love most about these sheet pan pancakes are that they’re perfect for breakfast meal prep. They freeze perfectly and whenever I need a quick breakfast, I just pop 2 pancakes in my toaster and breakfast is done!🙌

Why Sheet Pan Pancakes?

I’m not sure if your family loves pancakes as much as mine, but it has now turned into our Saturday morning routine. But flipping and making several batches of regular pancakes takes quite a while. And I have to try and keep the first few batches warm in the oven, while I make the rest of the pancakes. Sheet Pan Pancakes keeps you from having to do that back and forth dance. You can make pancakes for the whole family in one big batch, all on one baking sheet, and customize it with their favorite mix-ins and toppings. It’s honestly genius!

Ingredients For Sheet Pan Pancakes

To make these sheet pan pancakes, I used our homemade pancakes recipe as a base foundation and adjusted the measurements to accommodate a larger portion size. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • All-Purpose Flour: Flour adds structure and is the foundation of the pancakes.
  • Baking Powder: Baking powder is what makes the pancakes light and fluffy instead of dense and gummy.
  • Sugar: A little bit of sugar adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the pancakes.
  • Milk: Milk combines with the flour to add moisture and helps create the batter.
  • Egg: Eggs help hold the pancakes together and also helps leaven the pancakes.
  • Butter: Butter adds flavor and richness to the pancakes.
  • Vanilla Extract: A small amount of vanilla extract adds a wonderful flavor and depth to the pancake.
  • Salt: A little bit of salt helps enhance the flavor of the pancakes.
  • Toppings: This is where you can really have fun! I used a combination of my favorite fruits like strawberries and blueberries. And for some variety I added some chocolate chips and peanut butter & raspberry jam.

More Toppings and Mix-in Ideas

My favorite part about making sheet pan pancakes is adding different mix-ins and toppings. I personally love adding fresh fruit, but here are some more topping ideas for you to try:

Recipe Tips!

  1. Don’t overmix the batter. Stir the dry and wet ingredients together until they are just combined and there are no traces of dry flour left in the bowl. Over-mixing the batter will develop the gluten in the flour and make the pancakes rubbery rather than soft and fluffy.
  2. Grease your sheet pan well. Make sure to generously coat your sheet pan well with cooking spray to keep the pancakes from sticking.
  3. Dry your fruit well. If you’re adding fresh fruit, make sure to wash and dry your fruit well with paper towels to prevent any excess water or fruit juices from bleeding into the pancake batter.
  4. If necessary, use some parchment paper. Sheet pan pancakes seem to work better with baking sheets that aren’t too old. So if your baking sheet is older or a little beat up, you may want to line it with some parchment paper first.

How To Store & Freeze Sheet Pan Pancakes

What I love most about making sheet pan pancakes is that they’re extremely easy to store and freeze for later when you need a quick & easy breakfast. To store, let the pancakes cool completely, then transfer them to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

To freeze, place the cooled pancakes in a freezer safe storage bag, in single layers with parchment paper between the layers to prevent sticking. Freeze for up to 3 months. You can easily reheat frozen pancakes in a toaster or in the microwave until hot.

Servings 4 (2 pancakes each)
Prep 10 minutes
Cook 20 minutes
Total 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour ($0.40)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar ($0.10)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder ($0.18)
  • 3/4 tsp salt ($0.08)
  • 1 1/2 cup milk ($0.30)
  • 2 large eggs ($0.33)
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted ($0.53)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract ($0.30)
  • cooking spray

Optional Toppings*

  • fresh strawberries, sliced
  • blueberries
  • chocolate chips
  • peanut butter and fruit jam

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In the same bowl, add in the milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk the wet ingredients together with the dry ingredients until just combined. Be careful not to over mix.
  • Generously coat a 11×17-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Pour the pancake batter onto the baking sheet. Spread the batter evenly around the baking sheet with a rubber spatula or tap the pan a few times on the counter to even out the batter.
  • Visually divide the pancake batter into four equal sections and add your desired toppings on top into each section. I used a combination of sliced strawberries, blueberries, chocolate chips, and a peanut butter and raspberry jam swirl. To make the pb&j swirl, I simply added dollops of natural peanut butter and jam, then swirled the two together using a toothpick.
  • Place the sheet pan in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow the pan to cool slightly, then slice the sheet pan pancake into 8 equal portions. Feel free to make smaller slices if you want to make more servings. Serve warm with syrup and extra toppings if you like. Enjoy!

  1. I’ve made many stovetop pancakes over the years, so I was intrigued by this oven-baked version. Unfortunately my family voted hard NO on this recipe. I followed the directions exactly, was careful not to overmix, and baked it on the shorter side (18 minutes). The results were…not exactly leathery, but chewy and tough. Perhaps substituting buttermilk might have tenderized the batter somewhat? I really wouldn’t recommend this recipe to anyone.

  2. What a great idea! Made the recipe as written with a plain section, a blueberry section, a chocolate chip section, and the best one which was bananas with pecans. Used my 1/2 sheet pan which is 12″x17″ and it was so easy. Tasted good but a little boring and a little too thin, so next time will add buttermilk and make the recipe x1.25 so the result is a little thicker. Always tricky to figure out how to do more egg, so maybe an added egg yolk?

  3. Nadia made a similar recipe on her Netflix show Time to Eat. I like your toppings ideas and I appreciate US measurements.

  4. Got this in my email inbox with today’s newsletter and instantly knew it’d be lunch! Made this with a banana section, pear section and Nutella section and it was so bomb! I especially loved the pear! At 18 minutes it was still a bit blonde so I turned on the top grill for a few minutes. So much easier than sitting at a frying pan for an hour!

    1. A new fave and giving it a rave! It’s teaching the basics of cooking for my teen and reinforcing fractions!

    1. We didn’t try it but you should be able to. Just check the consistency as you’re mixing because WW flour tends to absorb a bit more liquid, so you might need a touch more.

  5. No one presently in my house eats pancakes, but I sure wish I had this recipe/idea when I had a house full of hungry kids who loved them!!!!! This recipe plus oven baked bacon would have made weekend breakfast way more fun.
