I’m always on the lookout for ways to get breakfast on the table faster, and these Sheet Pan Pancakes might just be my new bestie! They’re so easy to make and are super convenient too. You can pour the entire pancake batter onto one baking sheet, top it with your favorite toppings, and bake it!

Pancakes are a breakfast treat that just about everyone loves, but they can be time consuming and require all your attention. However, with this homemade pancake recipe, you don’t have to spend your morning standing in front of the stove, flipping pancakes.

What I love most about sheet pan pancakes is that they’re perfect for breakfast meal prep. They freeze perfectly, and whenever I need a quick breakfast, I just pop two pancakes in my toaster, and breakfast is done!

Also, I finally know what I’m going to serve for Mother’s Day Brunch: sheet pan pancakes! There’s nothing easier, trust me. And these Pancake Bites with a side of Sunrise Mimosas. I can’t host a brunch crowd without that duo and now a trio. 

Why We Love This Sheet Pan Pancakes Recipe

If your family requests pancakes as much as mine, you know how tedious it can be to make them in batches. Our weekend morning routine – right before a big soccer game or another dance competition – often involves flipping multiple pancakes and keeping the first few batches warm in the oven while I make the rest. Sheet Pan Pancakes eliminate that back-and-forth. You can make pancakes for the whole family in one big batch, all on one baking sheet, and customize them with their favorite mix-ins and toppings. It’s honestly genius!

Ingredients You’ll Need

To make these delicious sheet pan pancakes, you’ll need a few simple ingredients. Here’s a list of everything required to whip up this easy and convenient breakfast favorite.

  • Eggs – You’ll need three large eggs.
  • Buttermilk – Adds a slight tang and helps make the pancakes tender. If you don’t have any on hand, make it yourself by following my recipe for how to make buttermilk!
  • Honey – Sweetens the pancakes naturally, and you can also use maple syrup or agave nectar.
  • Pure Vanilla Extract – Adds a warm, sweet flavor.
  • All-Purpose Flour – Flour forms the base of the batter and gives the pancakes their structure.
  • Baking Powder – Helps the pancakes rise and become fluffy.
  • Baking Soda – Reacts with the buttermilk to provide additional lift.
  • Salt – Enhances the flavor of the pancakes.
  • Ground Cinnamon & Ground Nutmeg – Adds a warm, sweet-spicy flavor. Pumpkin pie spice would be a great alternative.
  • Butter – Melted butter will add richness and moisture to the pancakes.
  • Sliced Fresh Strawberries – You can use any fresh berries or fruit of your choice.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips – Adds a touch of sweetness and a little bit of indulgence. Substitute: Nuts or dried fruit.
  • Maple Syrup – Perfect for drizzling over the pancakes after they’re baked.

How To Make Sheet Pan Pancakes

These sheet pancakes are ridiculously easy to make. All you need to do is mix the pancake batter, pour it into a sheet pan, and bake in the oven for about 17 minutes. It’s the perfect fuss-free breakfast that everyone will love!

  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 500˚F and grease a 13×18 baking sheet with cooking spray; line with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, honey, and vanilla.
  3. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  4. Combine: Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  5. Add Butter: Stir in the melted butter until just combined (batter will be lumpy).
  6. Pour Batter: Pour the batter onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it evenly.
  7. Top: Add sliced berries and chocolate chips on top.
  8. Bake: Reduce the oven temperature to 425˚F and bake for 16-17 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Cool: Let it cool for 3-5 minutes.
  10. Serve: Cut into squares and serve with maple syrup.

Toppings & Mix-Ins Ideas

I think this is the laziest way to make pancakes, and I LOVE IT! Whoever thought of the baked pancake concept gets a standing ovation from me. These amazing, golden, and puffy pancakes come out perfect every time. Now, let’s talk about the fun part: mix-ins and toppings!

  • Sliced bananas
  • Mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries)
  • Nuts
  • Nutella and/or Peanut Butter
  • Caramel sauce
  • Strawberry syrup
  • Powdered sugar

Recipe Tips

  • Don’t overmix the batter: Stir the dry and wet ingredients together until they are just combined, and there are no traces of dry flour left in the bowl. Over-mixing the batter will develop the gluten in the flour and make the pancakes rubbery rather than soft and fluffy.
  • Grease your sheet pan well: Make sure to generously coat your sheet pan well with cooking spray to keep the pancakes from sticking.
  • Dry your fruit well: If you’re adding fresh fruit, make sure to wash and dry your fruit well with paper towels to prevent any excess water or fruit juices from bleeding into the pancake batter.
  • If necessary, use some parchment paper: Sheet pan pancakes seem to work better with baking sheets that aren’t too old. So if your baking sheet is older or a little beat up, you may want to line it with some parchment paper first.

How To Store Sheet Pan Pancakes

What I love most about making sheet pan pancakes is that they’re extremely easy to store and freeze for later when you need a quick and easy breakfast. To store, cut the pancakes into squares and let them cool completely. Store the pancakes in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. 

To store in the freezer, wrap each pancake square with plastic wrap and store them in a large freezer bag. Keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw before serving.

    Can this be prepped ahead of time? I’d like to do this on Christmas Eve and be able to throw it in the oven Christmas morning.

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      Technically, yes, you can, but if you leave buttermilk pancake batter in the refrigerator overnight, the pancakes that you make the next day are likely to have very little rise. So, if you don’t mind flatter pancakes, then there is no problem if you go ahead and make the batter ahead of time.

  2. Grumpy dad says:

    I keep a healthy supply of pancakes, waffles or crepes for my family in the freezer. I thought that I would try this recipe as a time saver. BIG mistake! This takes way more time to make than my other three choices!

    Shut the front door! What a great idea. Was wondering if you could use the box-style pancake mix? Talk about being EXTRA lazy! Happy mother’s day!

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      Lazy for the win, girl! I love that idea, and yeah, you can definitely use the boxed stuff. Bake at 425˚F for 15 to 17 minutes. Have a great Mother’s Day!!
