A TIME SAVING BREAKFAST RECIPE

They still come out so light and fluffy! If you are looking for a delicious recipe without all the hassle, then you have to try my Sheet Pan Pancake Recipe.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I use a half sheet baking pan for this recipe – which roughly measures 18″x13″x1″.
You can! However, you are going to need a pan with higher sides.
You can top them with any of your favorite pancake toppings such as maple syrup, butter, powdered sugar, fruit and more.
Absolutely! This is a great base recipe so feel free to add some of your favorite things. Some of our favorites are: chocolate chips, pecans, blueberries and raspberries.
Real buttermilk pancakes are the best so try to grab a small bottle next time you’re at the grocery store. You could use whole milk as a substitute and add a little vinegar to create a fake buttermilk. I only use cow’s milk so I don’t know how nut milks or oat milk would work in this recipe.
These will last in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in an airtight container. They can also be frozen. Cut into squares and wrap individually in plastic wrap and then place in freezer bag. Let defrost in refrigerator or countertop. You can reheat in the microwave until heated through.

I saw or actually had a friend of a friends house years ago she made pancakes but in the oven in a cake pan 9×9 round and put a slice of some kind of harvest bread from target in the center of the pancake batter and baked it and it was the best pancake(you cut it like a cake) I’ve ever had in my life and no way to find the recipe sadly…Do you have any idea???
Hey Anne! I am so sorry, I have never heard of that. If you ever do come across how she did it, I’d love to know!
I have made this multiple times and it is always a hit. It sure makes mornings easier, as I do not have to stand over a griddle while I prepare breakfast. I pair it with a brown sugar buttermilk syrup.
Have you ever tried it with buttermilk powder? Our local store is sometimes out of buttermilk.
So happy you like this one! I haven’t tried it with the powder but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. I would use a thicker milk with it though to mimic the thickness of buttermilk. Please come back and let me know if you decide to try it!
Thank you. I’ll use whole milk.
