If you’re after something with a bit more flavor, try adding some variation to the basic pancake batter before baking. Here are some of our favorite ideas for easy ways to change up the classic recipe.
- Boost nutrition! A few tablespoons of mashed banana or diced apples add natural sweetness and moisture while also boosting the nutritional value of your sheet pan pancakes.
- Add a hint of citrus by stirring in some fresh orange zest or lemon juice.
- Try adding berries. You can add blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries for an extra colorful presentation!
- Make chocolate chip pancakes. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the batter before baking.
- Add nuts. Stir chopped nuts into the batter for extra protein, vitamins, and minerals.
- Make a double batch on a half-sheet pan to have frozen pancakes for later.
- Spread the mix evenly in a greased or lined sheet pan before baking it in the oven. This creates perfectly cooked pancakes that are light and fluffy inside and slightly crispy outside.
Serve these easy sheet pan pancakes with melted butter, maple syrup, or any other toppings you desire for an irresistibly delicious meal. Adding jam, fresh fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, or vegan whipped cream can make it extra special.
Leftover sheet pan pancakes can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. For longer storage, freeze them for up to 3 months.
To reheat, place them on a microwave-safe plate and heat for 30 seconds or until warm. Alternatively, you can also place them on a baking sheet and warm them in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 8-10 minutes.
You can add a variety of ingredients to make your box pancake mix more interesting. Try adding fresh fruit, chocolate chips, nuts, or spices like cinnamon or nutmeg. You can also use different types of milk such as almond milk or coconut milk instead of regular dairy milk. Finally, try adding some Greek yogurt for a protein boost and a creamier texture!
Adding an extra egg to pancake mix can make the pancakes richer, fluffier, and more moist. It also helps the pancakes hold together better and gives them a more custard-like texture. The additional egg adds protein, which helps give the pancakes structure.
Pancake batter should be baked at a moderate temperature of 350-375°F (175-190°C). Make sure to preheat the oven before baking. Additionally, you can adjust the temperature slightly depending on the type of pancakes you are making.
