Sheet Pan cooking is the best kind of cooking, mostly because it means little clean up effort. And sheet pan breakfasts? Yes please. I’ll take any short cut to make it easier on my mornings. I’m not much for anything before my requisite one pot o’ coffee. But I can handle this sheet pan pancake recipe – and I can make four kinds at once.
No, it’s not magic. It’s just a basic pancake recipe, poured into a sheet pan and topped with a variety of ingredients that all moms have on hand – like sprinkles, chocolate chips, and brown sugar.
Y’all. This Ultimate Sheet Pan Pancakes recipe is so easy, it’s hard to mess up. But there are a few things to keep in mind as you embark on the breakfast recipe of your dreams. First – you need a big pan. I use these baker’s half sheet pans for all the things – and they are especially great for sheet pan dinners (or breakfasts).
Another thing – don’t over-mix the batter. I prefer light and fluffy pancakes instead of frisbees. You too? Then just remember, it’s okay to have a few lumps when you pour the batter in.
And yeah, ok, this one’s important, too. We’re preheating the oven to 500 degrees while we’re making the batter, but as soon as you put the sheet pan in the oven – don’t forget to REDUCE THE TEMPERATURE! The high heat ensures a perfectly golden pancake, but reducing the heat means they won’t burn.
Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s get cooking. Feel free to come up with new topping variations and share them with us! Let’s bring some happy to our mornings this year!
