Sheet Pan Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 3 Cups Self Raising Flour
  • 2 ½ Cups Milk
  • Pancake Toppings of your choice - could include strawberries and blueberries as pictured or, make blueberry pancakes by just adding blueberries, chocolate chip pancakes by adding chocolate chips, banana pancakes by adding sliced banana (or you could mash banana into the mixture) - you’re limited only by your imagination and what ingredients you have handy.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425℉ / 220℃
  • Grease your half sheet pan with cooking spray.
  • Pro tip - to keep your pan looking great and make clean up a breeze, line it with baking paper.
  • Add eggs to a large mixing bowl or jug, whisk together with a fork.
  • Add sugar and mix together (keep using the fork it works fine).
  • Alternately add your flour and milk mixing as you go until you have a nice smooth batter.
  • Leave the batter to rest for 5 minutes or so while you sort out your toppings.
  • Pour the pancake batter into the greased/greased and lined half sheet pan.
  • Sprinkle your chosen topping over the top.
  • Pop it into the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Serve with butter and maple syrup.
  • Enjoy!
  • Notes:
  • *If you don’t have Self Raising/Self Rising Flour you can easily make your own by following the directions here
  • *This is not a particularly sweet recipe - if you like it sweeter you may want to add more sugar. The sweetness will also depend on the toppings you add - if using chocolate chips you probably won’t need extra sugar as the chocolate will add the sweetness.
  • *You can be as versatile as you like with where you position your toppings, if someone doesn’t like blueberries, leave a section plain without them, or add chocolate chips to that section instead - you can get as creative as you need, it’s a very simple and forgiving recipe!
  • *As the pancakes are oven baked, not fried, you can feel less guilty about adding extra butter to them when serving.
  • *This recipe was designed for the Checkered Chef Half Sheet Pan - it should work just as well in any other pan of similar size, or, you could halve the recipe for use in the Checkered Chef Quarter Sheet Pan.
  • *Not just for breakfast! This simple recipe is so easy to prepare and bake you can use it at any time of day. Perfect for breakfast, morning tea, an after school snack or even as a dessert - you’ll find yourself coming back to this recipe and using it time and again!

Now You Know How To Bake Pancakes!

So, there you have it, that’s how easy it is to bake pancakes. While traditionally pancakes have always been fried in a pan with some butter, baking the pancakes in the oven has a couple of benefits:

  1. You greatly reduce the amount of fat involved as they are baked and not fried.
  2. Time! To get all the pancakes cooked and ready in one go rather than standing over a hot stove flipping them one by one is a great advantage.
