These sheet pan pancakes made with complete pancake mix will solve that problem and be absolutely delicious. Follow my instructions to make them Cinnamon Roll Sheet Pan Pancakes and you’ve got a breakfast worthy of Christmas morning.
Sheet Pan Pancakes Tips
This is an easy recipe, but there are a few tips I recommend to ensure fluffy pancakes . These are sheet pan pancakes, but know that any vessel will do. I like to use an 8×8 square cake pan because the higher sides make it easier to transfer the batter to the oven without spilling. You could also use a 1/4 sheet pan.
You can use a 9×13 pan for a bigger batch or a half sheet pan. Please note that you can change the number of servings on my recipe card to reflect the number of people you want to feed. It will change the ingredients for you . Very easy.
I don’t recommend using parchment paper. I like to grease the pan as directed in the recipe and pour the batter directly on the pan. This gets the bottom slightly golden brown. These pancakes don’t brown on the top like they would on the griddle. So always go with a well greased baking sheet or cake pan.
These easy sheet pan pancakes rely on complete pancake mix. I love Krustaez brand. You can use your favorite pancake mix or make your own pancake mix. Your dry ingredients literally consists of the mix itself. That’s it! The wet ingredients for the mix are just water! You could add vanilla extract if you feel fancy. Just a teaspoon!
Sheet-pan pancakes are great because you can make them in a variety of flavors. Simply cook the pancakes plain and put out different toppings like fresh fruit, maple syrup, peanut butter, nutella , butter, powdered sugar and whipped cream. You can also sprinkle chocolate chips on top and make the kids go crazy.
This version is my cinnamon roll sheet pan pancake. Just mix together brown sugar and melted butter and swirl it into the top of the batter before baking. After they come out hit them with a simple glaze of powdered sugar and water. So easy.
Sheet Pan Pancakes Substitutions
This is such a simple recipe that substitutions shouldn’t be necessary here, but if you need to, you can use a gluten free pancake mix. You could also use your favorite from scratch pancake recipe. You really are just avoiding the frying pan or griddle and making one giant pancake in the oven. It takes a fraction of the time for a crowd.
A Bisquick mix could also work if you follow the directions for pancakes so don’t be afraid to use what you have for this easy breakfast recipe.
Storing Leftover Easy Sheet Pan Pancakes
Simply store leftover pancakes in an airtight container. Just make sure they are cooled to room temperature. If you’d like to freeze them just cut into squares and store between pieces of parchment paper in a freezer bag. You could also wrap each individual pancake slice in plastic wrap. Now you can have delicious pancakes even on your busiest weekday morning.
