Why Make Pancakes in the Oven?
Here’s the skinny with these sheet pancakes and why you need to make them. First of all, they start with a pancake mix which makes these a snap to whip up. You can actually use these baking instructions with almost any mix, but it is especially delicious with Bisquick.
The recipe also takes away the tedious task of watching the stove as you flip pancake after pancake. You bake them all at once which means you can actually all eat together! Perfect for a family breakfast or for feeding a crowd.
Sheet Pan Pancakes from Mix
Ok, so I’ve talked you into giving these a try. So what do you need exactly? Let’s break down the ingredient list.
- Bisquick: Or any other baking mix. If you opt for another brand of mix, be sure to follow the directions for additional ingredients on the back of the box. The added ingredients here work best with my homemade pancake mix or Bisquick specifically.
- Baking Powder: Adding a little extra leavening agent gives your pancake a nice lift and fluffiness.
- Oil: Adding oil is key to a super moist pancake. I like to use regular vegetable oil.
- Milk: Try not to use anything under 2% milk for this pancake recipe.
- Eggs: Large eggs work best.
- Vanilla: Always opt for pure vanilla extract vs imitation. Imitation vanilla will leave you with a slightly chemical aftertaste.
How to Make Pancakes for a Crowd
- PREP: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a half sheet pan with parchment or grease well with butter. Set aside.
- WHISK: Combine the pancake mix and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine, about 15 seconds.
- MIX: Add the milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla to the mix. Stir until fully incorporated, about 1 minute. It’s ok if there are a few lumps still in the batter.
- BAKE: Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean.
- ENJOY: Serve warm with syrup or fresh fruit.
Yes. You can use your favorite from scratch recipe for these sheet pan pancakes. Just make sure the batter is at least 3 cups and follow the baking instructions.
Pancakes are great on their own with a little syrup. However, you can sprinkle chocolate chips or fresh fruit into the batter before baking.
Think golden and slightly springy to the touch. It usually takes a bit longer than regular pancakes, so keep an eye out and be patient.
Pour the batter evenly and give the pan a gentle jiggle to spread it out. That way, every corner gets its fair share of pancake love.
You bet! Pop them in an airtight container or wrap slices individually for future breakfast bliss.
The best way to serve these pancakes is to slice them into squares. Top with warm syrup, fresh fruit, or whipped cream.
