SHEET PAN PANCAKES

Sheet Pan Meals seem like they may be more trendy than most other one pot meals, but don’t let this trend fool you. Sheet pans are a versatile and amazing tool to utilize in your kitchen for meal prep.

Some popular sheet pan meals on the site include Sheet Pan Balsamic ChickenSheet Pan Cashew Chicken and VegetablesSheet Pan Peanut Chicken and Vegetables and Sheet Pan Korean Chicken and Vegetables. They’re all a full meal on a single tray!

You could cook entire holiday dinners on sheet pans, and this breakfast prep on a sheet pan is the perfect example of how hands off a brunch or breakfast for a crowd can be.

Pancakes are a fan favorite in most households, but because they are hands on work for the person cooking, they aren’t a favorite for parties. Someone always gets left behind in the kitchen stuck at the pan flipping pancake after pancake.

Then you have the issue where the first pancakes out are getting cold while everyone else is waiting for their pancakes.

Sheet pan pancakes solve this issue with ease. Plus, you can bake off a couple sheet pans at a time and fill them each with different toppings so you can even offer different flavors.

Then top it off with Easy Chocolate Ganache (Just 2 Ingredients!)Easy Strawberry Topping or Easy Pineapple Topping.

  1. Good idea but didn’t quite work. Used Aunt Jemima buttermilk mix. Use the eggs suggested in the recipe. “Pancakes” were ready about 2 minutes early. They were very tall and more of a cake than pancake consistency. I added half chocolate chips and half slices strawberries. Tasty but would try again using the mix directions and make a much thinner layer of batter (say using this much batter on 2 cookie sheets or 1 and 1/2 cookies sheets)

  2. In my house we love pancakes of all kinds! These are by far our fave! I added a sprinkle of light brown sugar and a dusting of powdered sugar along with sliced strawberries! So so delicious, thank you 🙂

  3. Turned out great, thanks for the fantastic recipe.
    I made a few changes to make it a little “healthier”;
    I added 1C Oat Flour + 2C All Purpose
    I used almond milk instead of cow
    I used coconut oil instead of butter (mostly because I didn’t have enough butter)

    I also used frozen fruit (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries), just make sure you drain them and they’ll work great!

  4. Thanks this was great! I put blueberries and strawberries on top. May also mix some into the batter next time. Delicious and easy:)

  5. I have six kids so I have to make a lot of pancakes. I thought the recipe looked too good to be true but I just went for it. I’m so glad I did, because it’s AWESOME! We all loved it! This is going to make breakfast so much easier for me, thank you!!

      1. Is it really 2 TABLESPOONS of baking powder or should it be teaspoons? Seems like way too much to me? Making for my kids for school holiday breakfast and wanted to double check

  6. Loved these! I added orange zest and had to sub a few things to accommodate my dairy allergy and it worked great. Only thing is that the top didn’t brown quite as much but I find that’s a result of using DF ingredients. Still delicious!!!

  7. Please tell me where I went wrong…I used pancake shake mix (where you just add water) and it came out all doughy except for top and bottom. Kept coming but made no difference… Appreciate some assistance as would like to do for Christmas breakfast.

  8. I’ve made this a couple of times now it’s always turned out great!
    The first time was exactly as the recipe. Right down to the strawberries and blueberries.
    The second time was with an”add water” boxed pancake mix. No fruit. It didn’t fluff up as much but it was still so quick and easy and very “pancakey”. I spread my homemade (healthier version) of Nutella on top.
    Today I made it with frozen raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. I coated them in coconut flour first as suggested in one of the comments.
    Looking forward to trying this with bacon and sausage added!
    And with sliced apples coated in Cinnamon and brown sugar.
    THANK YOU for this recipe!

    1. I’m wanting to make this with a mix/water only mix. How did you figure out how much mix to make? I’m trying to decide whether to double or triple it. Mine has one batch = 12-14 4” pancakes. So I’m thinking double, then again I think maybe triple.LOL
      Any suggestions?

      1. I’ve not tested it with just a mix/water only combination. If you decide to try, I’d love to know how it turns out.

  9. Wow! Total life hack! LOVE this! We will be cooking this up for many sleepovers in the future. Super easy and a great time saver. ??

  10. So simple and so delicious!
    I used a box mix of “Complete, just add water”- followed the box directions
    and I lined the sheet pan with foil and then sprayed with PAM, because I was afraid it would stick. I topped with thin slices of apple that were dusted with brown sugar and cinnamon. What a hit with everyone! So quick and easy, give it a try! We will definitely make these again! Thank you!

  11. I halved the recipe and used a half sheet pan, and it turned out great. Easy way to make pancakes all at once. Will make the full recipe when grandkids come. Thank you!

  12. Can a complete pancake mix be used for this where you just add water? I used you bisquick recipe and family did not like it. Came out very dry and too crispy on the bottom.

    1. I haven’t tried it with a pancake mix like that but if you try it, I would love to hear how it turns out for you!

      1. The complete pancake mix worked great. I made it with nutella and my daughter loved it!! Can not wait to use this recipe for a brunch in a few weeks. Plan on making the nutella one and the fresh fruit one!!

        1. So happy to hear that and thank you so much for coming back to let me (and other readers) know! The Nutella one is definitely next level, although I do have a bit of a soft spot for that hazelnut goodness. 🙂

  13. Can a pancake complete mix be used where you just add the water to the mix? I used the bisquick recipe you have on here and did not like it too much. Was dry and too crusty on the bottom. I want to use this idea for a brunch but want to make sure people will like it.

    1. I haven’t tried this recipe with a premade mix that only takes water. If you try it, let me know how it turns out.

  14. Really disappointing recipe. Followed all of the steps and it took ages too cook. Are the measurements for baking powder correct? You could taste it in every bite! It’s much quicker, easier and for edible to just make regular fruit pancakes. These were a bust!

  15. I made this today, easy to make. Delicious to eat! I used peaches, blueberries and strawberries. Lots leftover to freeze and enjoy later. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yes, it’ll just be thicker so you may need to bake it longer. Keep an eye on it when you place it in the oven. Enjoy!

  16. I just found your recipe for the sheet cake pancakes and I can’t wait for our grandsons to come spend the night again. They LOVE pancakes. One likes just chocolate chips and the other one like his with chocolate chips and pecans!

  17. Perfect for my toddler who can never seem to keep thin pancakes on his fork.

    Made it twice the first week.

    1. I’ve not tested it using a substitute but if you decide to try, I’d love to know how it turns out. Thanks!

    2. Depending on what your reason is for changing the sugar: Try a “0 calorie” sugar alcohol erythritol (it doesn’t affect blood sugar or insulin levels. It is 70% as sweet as sugar, so you need a bit more. Honey is sweeter than sugar and like sugar raises blood sugar/insulin, but you can use a bit less and get the sweetness.
      Coconut sugar is similar to sugar (tiny less on the GI index, but higher in fructose) and you use it on a 1:1 ratio.

  18. Thank you for this! Such a time saver. I made it this morning! I topped part of it with blueberries part strawberries part chocolate chips and then The last part plain.

  19. We made these into breakfast bars. Cut them in small rectangles and drizzled them with a maple syrup – powdered sugar and milk glaze. They are going to be perfect for our family vacation this summer.

  20. Made this using thawed out frozen fruit… wouldn’t recommend ? fresh fruit would have been MUCH better but I thought it was worth a shot lol

  21. My sheet pan isn’t that deep but I’m wondering if I could use a casserole dish and get the same results….

  22. Just tried this recipe tonight for dinner. I used a mix, but didn’t see the comment below about not adding eggs if you use a mix. Instead of berries, we love banana pancakes so I mashed two of those and added a half a cup of chocolate chips. They were wonderful. I’m not sure that I’d leave the eggs out next time. I’ll try it though. There’s so much leftover pancake that I won’t have to make them for a while, though! The leftovers are going in the freezer! Thanks for the great recipe!

    1. Yes. Just place a sheet of wax paper between each layer and stack together. Place it inside a heavy-duty freezer bag and freeze. Use the frozen pancakes within 1 to 2 months for best quality.

  23. I want to try this tomorrow. I plan to use Krusteaz Protein Buttermilk pancake mix. The mix doesn’t call for eggs. Do I add 4 eggs anyway?

    1. No, whatever mix your using you should follow those instructions. I just doubled the amounts. Hope this helps!

  24. I love how simple this recipe is! These sheet pan pancakes are a perfect breakfast for summer guests!

  25. I didn’t know there is such a thing as a sheet pan pancake, where have you been all this time? I’ll definitely be giving this a try really soon, like tomorrow’s breakfast soon.

  26. What a great idea for pancakes! This would sure save me a lot of time in the morning when trying to whip up breakfast for the kids! Can’t wait to try it out!

      1. What size (in inches x inches ) should used? I’m not familiar with anything called a” half size baking sheet. Thanks!

          1. That’s a little smaller than a half sheet but give it a try and let us know how it turns out. Enjoy!

        1. Thanks for asking for inches. I had no idea what it was. Sometimes when writers share a recipe, too many assumptions are made and the reader is left experimenting with a great sounding recipe and wondering why it doesn’t look like the pics. ???

        2. Thanks for a wonderful and delicious timesaver. I used the Kodiak Power pancake mix with great results. Pitted cherries work well. I used a silpat and think I will skip that next time as the bottom was a little less crispy than we like. A keeper.

          1. Have not tried this yet, I was wondering if it would work if I used a potato pancake mix?

          2. I’ve not tested it using one. If you decide to try, I’d love to know how it turns out. Thanks!
