Sheet Pan Pancakes
If you’ve ever stood in front of the stove making pancakes for an hour, and wondered to yourself “Isn’t there an easier way?” – Baking them in a sheet pan is the answer.
I am a huge fan of sheet pan meals for families. They help to save time time and still create a delicious meal. Think of the sheet pan as a convenient meal hack! From sheet pan eggs, to baking vegetables and salmon on a sheet pan for an easy healthy dinner. You can do so much on a sheet pan, including your pancakes!
I love this recipe because I can easily make a batch for a Sunday morning brunch, or pack them into a freezer bag and freeze them for later. If you plan on having your family eat one for weekday breakfasts, then it’s easy to stack them in a container in the fridge for a grab-and-go meal.
What Pan Should I Use For Pancakes?
You want to use a sheet pan with at least a 1-inch lip on the outer rim. Otherwise, the liquid mixture will probably spill as it bakes in the oven. I recommend using a sturdier baking sheet for this recipe, I used the paderno proffessional baking sheet and I can definitely notice a big difference in how strong it is compared to the cheap dollar store versions I’ve had in the past. Plus the edge is enough to properly hold the pancake batter in place.
How Do I Stop Pancakes Sticking To The Pan?
The quality of your sheet pan will make a big difference with avoiding pancakes sticking to the pan. My paderno baking sheet has a texture on the bottom which helps to prevent this. I also recommend lightly greasing your pan with non-stick cooking spray or a paper towel and some cooking oil. You can also line the baking sheet with parchment paper for easier clean up.
