When it comes to a perfect family breakfast or brunch, pancakes rank pretty high on the popularity scale. Easy to make (thank you, instant mix) and fun to top as you choose. The only real work is in the pouring and flipping, constantly battling between the perfect browned pancake, and serving them up warm, and attempting to eat all together. A tall order when you’re talking about pancakes. That is until you discover sheet pan pancakes. Easily prepared in the oven, you can serve up all at once, all perfectly cooked. With this version, we added some berries for some color and flavor. However, you can make this recipe in whatever way you choose to create it. Plain or with chocolate chips, they’ll be amazing no matter what.
This recipe happens in just two easy stages, the first step is mixing your pancake batter and pouring over your berries in a foil-lined baking sheet, before baking part way in the oven. Next step, you remove the pancakes when not quite fully cooked, and top with more berries, returning to the oven so they can finish baking. The purpose of this is to keep the pancakes FULL of berries, but not so that the berries just sink into the pancakes, not to be visible at all. We eat with our eyes first, after all.
Next time you go to make pancakes, try sheet pan pancakes. You might be just changing your ways after it.
