cook pancake on sheet pan

When I shared these sheet pan pancakes on Instagram you were just as excited as me. Where have these been all my life?! When I recently learned this trick and tested it out, we were all delighted with how fast breakfast came together. No flipping, no mess, and so much fun adding in our toppings. Clean up was a breeze.

We tend to make pancakes from scratch at least once over the weekend. (Sometimes twice a week with our new homeschool schedule.) A sheet pan pancake is definitely possible for a weekday even when school is back in session. (This is my usual oat flour gluten-free pancake recipe.)

I’ll walk you through this cooking method, along with a recipe sample. You can actually use your own favorite pancake mix, and I’ll explain how.

Is it breakfast or dessert?

The kids called it “breakfast cake” once they saw it at the table. They were quite right, as the pancake takes on a cake-like texture. Though still perfect with some syrup and yogurt (or whip cream!) on top.

There is little sugar in the cake, so it’s perfect for breakfast, and even better paired with your favorite yogurt. (Here’s my slow cooker yogurt recipe.)

Sheet pan pancakes will be perfect for sleepovers, once we can host them again. (Never thought I would miss those!) Make it for brunch, or serve it as dessert and no one will be the wiser. I promise I won’t tell.

How to make sheet pan pancakes

Here’s the short version. You will need 3 cups of pancake batter to fill an 18×13” rimmed baking sheet properly. Use your favorite pancake mix, or make it from scratch. Your choice. And did you know you can use your pancake mix for something other than pancakes?

The pancake toppings are what make it all so much fun. Here’s my list of fun ideas you can mix and match

  • Bananas and toasted coconut
  • Bacon
  • Granola
  • Blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries
  • Chocolate chips
  • Peanut butter and jelly

Recipe inspired by the one and only @Weelicious Catherine McCord. (Brilliant!)
Sheet Pans vary in size. I created mine in a smaller one that's 13x8''. It gave me more of a "cake-like" finish. The standard size baking sheet results in thinner pancake-like slices.
