I’m about to drop a truth bomb on you. You’ve been making pancakes all wrong! The best and easiest way ever to make pancakes is with a sheet pan!
I can’t believe it took me this long to figure it out. For years what I’ve done is get my griddle out, mix up my pancake mix while the griddle is heating up, then carefully pour our rounded batter. This process take so long! And I hate having to wash my griddle. It takes a long time get it clean.
That’s why I am so glad I figured out that you can make pancakes on a sheet pan in the oven! That’s right all you have to do is mix up your batter, pour it onto your pan and let it do it’s thang in the over! These sheet pan pancakes are really just that easy to make! Plus the recipe is so versatile you can add a mix of topping to the sheet pan pancakes or you can opt to just use one fruit. Pro tip: my favorite pancake fruit is Mango! Okay, maybe that is less of a pro tip and more of an opinion. But try it! Mangoes and so good in pancakes! You will wonder why more people don’t make pancakes this way!
