Weekday pancakes? Easy! Simply swap the griddle and stove top for a sheet pan and your oven!
Whip up the batter, pour into your pan and bake. No more standing over the stove flipping individual pancakes, and everyone gets served at the same time!
Even better, this sheet pan version is topped with berries and a generous sprinkling of sugar. A quick broil at the end of baking caramelizes the sugar and is absolutely delicious!
You can use any basic pancake batter but we stepped things up by adding pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Pumpkin Spice Sheet Pan Pancakes:
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar, plus additional for sprinkling
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 cups mixed berries, fresh or frozen (do not thaw if using frozen)
- Maple syrup, for serving
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees; spray a 12” x 17” sheet pan with non-stick cooking spray – line with parchment paper and spray again.
Use a whisk (or the whisk attachment of your mixer) to lightly whisk the eggs. Add the butter, 1/4 cup sugar, buttermilk, pumpkin puree and vanilla and whisk till smooth. Add the remaining dry ingredients and whisk again.
Pour batter into your prepared pan and spread evenly – rap the pan a few times on the counter to level. Top with berries and sprinkle generously with sugar.
Bake for 12 – 14 minutes or till set in the center. Turn the oven up to broil and bake till sugar is golden brown and bubbly (watch carefully to prevent burning). Remove from oven, cut into squares and serve with maple syrup.
