The Best Sheet Pan Pancakes
Pancakes and waffles. There’s nothing better than starting your day with light and fluffy pancakes or waffles. It’s kind of like dessert for breakfast, and I am 100% okay with that!
These Sheet Pan Pancakes are such a brilliant and easy hack! Preparing the batter takes just a few minutes, then sprinkle it with your favorite fruit. I chose strawberries and blueberries but so many fruits would work in this recipe (check out the list below!). Use your favorite or what you have on hand. Then all you have to do is bake the pancakes! No more standing at the stove and flipping! The oven does all of the work for you so you can concentrate on other busy morning tasks, or make some Green Juice to really start your day right.
Best of all, the leftovers can be saved for easy breakfasts throughout the week. The baked pancakes can be stored as slices in the fridge and you can either reheat them in the microwave or eat them cold. They taste great either way!
Serve with butter, maple syrup, or my Mixed Berry Compote, and enjoy!
Ingredients for Sheet Pan Pancakes
- Flour: All-purpose flour is the base of this sheet pan pancake recipe, just like regular stovetop pancakes!
- Milk and vinegar: I mix milk and vinegar together to create a quick buttermilk. This is a great hack if you don’t have buttermilk on hand and no time to run to the store.
- Eggs: I separated the egg yolk from the whites. The egg yolks are stirred straight into the pancake batter and the egg whites are whipped until soft peaks form. This adds a little more lightness and fluffiness to the baked pancakes.
- Butter: Butter coats the sheet pan to stop the pancakes from sticking to it. Butter also gets added to the pancake batter for a rich, buttery taste. It’s the best!
- Baking powder: Baking powder is a raising agent, helping the pancakes to rise a little more when baking in the oven.
- Sugar: Just a little sweetness! I like slightly sweetened pancakes, but not overly sweet. They have to have a good balance and be able to take on some maple syrup later.
- Fruit: I placed strawberries and blueberries on top of the sheet pan pancake batter before baking it. You can add other fruit as well. I’ve included a list below for ideas!
How to make Baked Pancakes in the oven
- Grease the sheet pan. Begin by heating the oven and coating the sheet pan with a little of the melted butter to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
- Make buttermilk: Next, mix together the milk and vinegar in a small bowl or measuring cup, and let it sit for 5 minutes. This creates a quick buttermilk and is so handy if you don’t have buttermilk in your pantry.
- Combine dry ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
- Add the wet ingredients: Add the milk, egg yolks, and melted butter to the dry ingredients and mix it all together until it’s lump-free, taking care not to over-mix as that will make the baked pancakes denser.
- Whip the egg whites: Add the egg whites to a medium bowl and whip them until soft peaks form. You can whip them either by whisk, hand mixer, or stand mixer.
- Bake! Pour the pancake batter onto the greased sheet pan. Sprinkle with sliced strawberries and blueberries, and then bake until the pancakes are golden-brown.
- Serve: Serve these pancakes while they’re hot with butter melted on top and a drizzle of maple syrup!
Storage and Freezing Instructions
- Store the pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. You may need to slice the pancakes to fit them into a container.
- Freeze the pancakes in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Thaw completely before consuming.
- Reheat: You can reheat individual slices of these sheet pan pancakes in a skillet on the stove, in the microwave, or reheat them in the oven for a few minutes until warm if you’re heating several slices.
Tips for Success
- Don’t over mix the pancake batter as this will create a dense texture, which is not the aim with pancakes! I like my pancakes light and airy, so I mix the batter until it is just lump-free.
- Check the pancakes after 15 minutes. Some ovens are a little warmer than others, so double-check the color on top of the pancakes. If it’s golden-brown, they’re ready!
- Save half of the pancakes for easy breakfasts throughout the week. These sheet pan pancakes reheat in minutes and are a great way to start the day!
