Sheet-Pan Pancakes – How to quickly feed a big family

When this idea for Sheet-Pan Pancakes scrolled onto my Pinterest feed, it was destined to be made. It does not sound exotic or difficult, but really quite simple. Keep reading for all the details on how to make Sheet-Pan Pancakes.

Using a pancake recipe in a different way

Making Sheet-Pan pancakes literally uses the same recipe as Homemade from Scratch Pancakes. The only difference was to bake them on a sheet-pan in the oven and not on a griddle.

Cost breakdown for this recipe

Most of the ingredients in pancakes are typically pantry staples. Having baking powder and flour on hand can then make this recipe super inexpensive and easy to accomplish. For simplicity, below is a cost breakdown to make one batch of pancakes that produces around ten pancakes on average. When we have Homemade Scratch Pancakes, we always make a triple batch to then have enough.

For this specific recipe, a triple batch made two large sheet-pans worth of pancakes.

Cost of each ingredient:
Flour 1 1/2 cups $0.54
1 Tablespoon Sugar $0.06
1 teaspoon Salt $0.04
3 Tablespoons Butter $0.39
1 teaspoon Vanilla $0.20
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon $0.17
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg $0.15
3 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder $0.54
1 egg $0.41

The total cost to make one single batch of Sheet-Pan Pancakes is $2.50.
So, when we make a triple batch, it costs our family $6.51 for two Sheet-Pans worth of pancakes that are fluffy and homemade from scratch. When the pancakes were cut, we had a total of thirty pancakes that were a little larger than skillet-cooked ones.

These eggs below were bought from my friend Abby’s parents. They raise chickens and then sell their eggs locally. A dozen was $5.00, making each egg cost $0.41. With the chicken shortage we have been going through, finding locally sourced eggs and also helping out a friend’s family, was totally worth the time and money. We will for sure be getting more of these beautifully colored eggs!

On the other hand, if you were to buy a dozen organic eggs at the grocery store, the cost would range between $5.99-$8.99 in my area.

These OXO Good Grips containers are the best for storing dry goods. The big ones fit a bag of flour nicely or two bags of sugar.

Directions for Sheet-Pan Pancakes

1. Firstly, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Secondly, in a large bowl, sift together 1 1/2 cups flour, 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 Tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Nutmeg really brings an amazing flavor to pancakes; if you have never tried it but remember just a dash will do.

3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in 1 1/4 cup milk, 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla and then mix well with a whisk.

When using farm-fresh eggs, to make sure they are still good, dunk them in a bowl of water. Good eggs will float. Then, wash the eggs before cracking them.

4. In a microwavable safe measuring cup, melt the 3 Tablespoons butter, and then let it sit to cool before adding to the batter. Do not add warm butter with the eggs as it can cause the eggs to cook before you want them to.

5. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray and then set aside and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
