Easy Baked Pancakes

If there’s any food that my kids will eat without fail, it’s any kind of breakfast food. Pancakes are one of their all-time favorites and I make them from scratch often, like our popular fluffy pancakes. Once I discovered the idea of sheet pan pancakes, I knew I had to try it out. It’s convenient and the pancakes are still so fluffy in the middle and get that signature golden brown color on the outside. I also love that you can make several flavors at once. We don’t always agree on what flavor of pancakes we want, so this gives everyone the option to customize theirs. It’s amazing!

What You’ll Need

This is a basic yet delicious pancake recipe from scratch. If you like to bake, many of these ingredients are likely already in your kitchen.

  • Flour: I use all-purpose flour but you can also use whole wheat or your favorite gluten-free blend.
  • Sugar: Simple white granulated sugar is the sweetener used in this recipe.
  • Baking powder: This ingredient will give you light and fluffy sheet pancakes.
  • Salt: A pinch of salt balances the flavors. Leave it out if you use salted butter.
  • Milk: Any variety of milk can be used in this recipe including almond milk.
  • Eggs: Be sure these are at room temperature for best results. It will give you a smooth batter.
  • Butter: Fresh pancakes’ rich buttery flavor can only come from melted butter. You can also use vegetable oil in a pinch.
  • Vanilla: I love the subtle vanilla flavor in the pancake batter. It enhances the flavors of the pancakes so well.
  • Toppings: You can add any kind of topping that you like before and after the pancakes have been baked. Fresh fruit, fresh berries, bananas, nuts, and syrup are great choices.

How to Make Sheet Pan Pancakes

It only takes about 10 minutes to prepare these baked sheet pancakes. They are ready to eat in just a half hour. It’s so convenient and easy. 

  • Prepare the oven and baking sheet. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and grease a 13 x 18 baking sheet. You can also line it with parchment if you prefer.
  • Combine the dry ingredients. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl until combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredient mixture and add milk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter. Carefully break the egg yolks and whisk until all of the ingredients are just combined.
  • Pour batter onto the sheet pan. Pour and spread the batter evenly onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Add toppings. Sprinkle your chosen toppings over the entire pan or divide it in half or quarters to make different varieties. 
  • Bake. Put the pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the pancakes are light golden brown. 
  • Cool. Transfer the sheet pancake to a wire rack to cool slightly.
  • Slice and serve. Using a pizza cutter, slice it into 16 equal rectangles. Serve with syrup or whipped cream.
