- All-purpose flour – the best way to measure the flour is to lightly spoon the flour into the cup and then level it off. This ensures your batter doesn’t have too much flour which can make your pancakes dense.
- Baking powder
- Granulated sugar
- Kosher salt
- Buttermilk – if you don’t have any one hand, you can make your own buttermilk!
- Large eggs
- Vanilla extract
- Melted butter
There aren’t any tricks with the batter – it’s just like a regular pancake batter, the magic is in how to cook them!
How To Make Them
Whisk the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Add the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and six tablespoons of melted butter. Mix just until combined – it’s okay if there are lumps in the batter. You don’t want to overmix because that will make your pancakes chewier and dense.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking sheet and bake the pancake for 13 to 15 minutes at 425°F. It’s done when the batter is set in the middle.
When it’s done baking it won’t be browned on top, so brush the top with two tablespoons of butter and then place the pan under the broiler. Broil the top of the pancake for one to two minutes or until it turns golden in spots.
Slice it while it’s still warm and serve!
You can’t go wrong with a pat of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup, but there are other ways to dress up your sheet pan pancakes. Here are some ideas!
- Add a spoonful of homemade whipped cream.
- Dust them with some powdered sugar.
- Use a fruit sauce – we love them with strawberry sauce and blueberry sauce!
- Add fresh fruit like sliced bananas, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, black berries, or sliced peaches.
- Cooked cinnamon apples make an amazing topping, too!
- For a really special treat, drizzle chocolate sauce or some caramel sauce over the top!
Yes, if you have leftovers keep them in the refrigerator and you can warm them up in the microwave.
Yes, they freeze great. Once it’s baked, let the pancake cool and then slice it. You can freeze the slices in smaller servings. Tightly wrap them and keep them in a freezer container. They will keep for up to a month in the freezer.
I don’t recommend making the batter ahead. If the batter sits too long, the baking powder will be less effective and your pancake won’t puff up as much. It’s better to make the batter and then bake it not soon after.
You can add chocolate chips, chopped nuts, and blueberries or other fruit to the batter. You can also top the batter with sliced fruit for a pretty presentation.
