This Sheet Pan Pancake Recipe Is An Effortless Breakfast Hack

This sheet pan pancake recipe will make your mornings so much easier. Cooking pancakes in one skillet for a hungry family can be time-consuming. You have to stand at the stove and constantly keep an eye on the pancakes to make sure you are flipping them at just the right time. The other challenge is keeping the pancakes warm while you cook the entire batch. 

If you want to solve these annoying pancake recipe problems, this sheet pan pancake recipe is the answer. You can mix your batter, pour it onto a large sheet pan, and bake in the oven. It’s the easiest recipe and everyone’s pancakes are done at the same time, so everyone can enjoy them hot and eat breakfast together.

Plus, you can add different toppings to please your family’s taste buds. Some pre-bake topping ideas include blueberries, sliced strawberries, raspberries, chocolate chips, sliced bananas, walnuts or sprinkles. And after the sheet pan pancake recipe is cooked, you can slice it into pieces, create stacks and top with butter, syrup or whipped cream.

If you like to have premade pancakes to quickly heat up for the kids in the morning, this sheet pan pancake recipe works well as a make-ahead option too. You can just bake as instructed, cut out squares and let them cool. Then store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or you can freeze them. You can easily reheat them in the toaster oven or microwave before school or work. They make for a great on-the-go breakfast too.

The best pan to use for this pancake recipe is a 13×18 inch non-stick baking sheet. Here is a non-stick sheet pan from Amazon that would work well. The non-stick pan helps the pancake some out so easily because the last thing you want is to have to scrub a pan. Because this recipe uses a coated metal pan, make sure to have a silicone turner on hand. This will prevent any scratching when you cut the pancake into squares and serve.

Also, make sure to generously spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray or vegetable oil on the bottom and the sides. I like Spectrum brand canola oil (you can buy it here on Amazon) because it works so well and doesn’t affect the flavor of any recipe.

Sheet Pan Pancake Recipe Ingredients

Sheet Pan Pancake Recipe Ingredients / Bridget Coolick
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon baking powder 
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Optional toppings:
    • 1 banana, sliced
    • 1/2 cup blueberries
    • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
    • 1/2 cup strawberries
    • 1/2 cup rasperries

Sheet Pan Pancake Recipe Steps

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. In a smaller mixing bowl, add the eggs and beat them with a whisk. Very slowly add some melted butter to the eggs and whisk, making sure the eggs are not cooking due to the warmed butter. Then whisk in the rest of the butter, milk, vanilla and maple syrup. Take your combined wet ingredients and slowly mix them into the dry ingredients with a spoon (not a whisk). Be careful not to overmix – it’s ok if the pancake batter has small lumps.

Generously spray your sheet pan with cooking spray or grease it with vegetable oil. Pour the pancake batter onto the middle of the sheet pan and smooth it out with a spatula or spoon until the batter is even. Try to make sure the batter goes to each corner, and smooth out any large air bubbles.

Here’s where you can have some fun and include the kids to help too – decorating the sheet pan pancake with toppings! Top with fruit and other toppings you like. I used fruit and chocolate and made a pattern in rows, so it’s easy to cut pieces with certain toppings. Feel free to mix and match for different flavor combinations as well!

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Mine took about 18 minutes, but ovens vary. Let it rest for about 5 minutes and then cut into pieces using a silicone turner. Serve warm with butter and syrup or top with whipped cream. You can also cut them into pieces and freeze to eat later. Take one out of the freezer the night before to defrost. In the morning, pop it in the toaster for a couple of minutes to heat it up.
