Perfect for a party, these Sheet Pan Fruity Pancakes offer a little something for everyone! In about half an hour, you can have a sheet of pancakes ready to go with all of your favorite fruity (and chocolatey) flavors.
If you have friends coming over for brunch, this is the recipe you simply must make. Everyone craves a little something different in their pancakes! While chocolate chips might be your favorite mix in, someone else may be craving blueberries. When you make this delicious (and seriously easy) sheet pan pancake recipe, everyone gets to enjoy what they’re craving!
If you’re anything like me, though, you’ll probably look at this and realize that you can’t just stick to one corner. I mean, how could I possibly only have strawberry pancakes when bananas are right there?! That’s why I like to grab a little square from each region of the sheet pan, so I can enjoy the best of all four different flavors.
Instant pancake mix certainly isn’t the worst thing in the world, but this homemade mix that gets baked to perfection in the oven is simply the best. These pancakes have just the right amount of sweetness and the most wonderful fluffy consistency. Simple as they may be, they knock every instant pancake mix out of the park!
What You’ll Need:
The pancakes call for:
- Flour – All-purpose flour is what you’ll need.
- Sugar – Plain white granulated sugar will give just the right amount of sweetness.
- Brown Sugar – You can easily make your own by combining one tbsp of molasses with one cup of white sugar.
- Baking Powder – This helps the pancakes rise to the best fluffy consistency.
- Salt – Just a pinch!
- Milk – Any milk you prefer will do the trick.
- Vinegar – This also helps the pancakes rise as they bake.
- Eggs – I like to use free-range organic eggs!
- Vanilla – Use pure vanilla extract, not imitation.
- Butter – It should be salted and melted.
Here are my favorite toppings:
- Chocolate Chips
How to Make Sheet Pan Fruity Pancakes
For more detailed instructions, scroll to the bottom of this post.
Whisk the dry ingredients. Whisk together the flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Create buttermilk. Add the vinegar to the milk and allow it to sit until it bubbles.
Whisk the remaining ingredients. Whisk the eggs first, then add the vanilla and milk mixture. Add the melted butter.
Make the batter. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until smooth, then pour the batter into a prepared baking pan.
Add the toppings. In each fourth of the pan, add the different berries and chocolate chips.
Bake. Bake the pancakes in an oven preheated to 425°F for 12 minutes.
What are some other flavors that would work well? The limit does not exist! It is fun and very easy to switch out the flavors! In any of the quarters you could instead mix in 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter, ½ a sliced banana (or try the peanut butter and banana together), 1 Tablespoon of nutella, or ¼ cup of any fruit (raspberries or peaches work great). Use your imagination! Pecans, apples, cinnamon sugar…anything your family enjoys. Or, feel free to make it plain if you prefer to add flavor with toppings.
How should I serve sheet pan fruity pancakes? Maple syrup is always my go to! However, honey’s also a delicious topping that enhances the fruitiness of these pancakes. Whipped cream, powdered sugar, and more fresh berries are also never a bad idea. They can also be served with the standard butter and syrup, or try powdered sugar, chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce, jam, or ice cream!
We are lactose intolerant – can we use coconut milk in these? Yes! That will work just fine.
Could I make this in a 12X18 inch cookie sheet? Yes, as long as the sides are high enough to contain the batter (it will rise a little, too). And then you will need to reduce your baking time because the pancakes will be much thinner. I would check for doneness at 8 minutes, and regularly after that.
Could I use frozen berries in this recipe? Yes, as long as they are fairly small, otherwise allow them to thaw slightly before adding them to the batter. Also, it is a good idea to toss frozen berries with a little flour before adding them to the batter, otherwise they may sink to the bottom.
Can I make this recipe ahead of time? It is actually better made fresh. You could let the batter sit for an hour. But, if the batter sits too long, it will have to go into the fridge, and then the pancakes may not have the light fluffy texture we’re looking for.
How should I reheat the sheet pan pancakes? Heat a piece in the microwave for about 10 seconds or until heated through. Or, reheat them in the oven at 325 degrees until heated through (5-10 minutes).
Be the star of your next brunch party with one of these sweet recipes!

The default measuring system for this website is US Customary. Unit conversions are provided for convenience and as a courtesy only. While we strive to provide accurate unit conversions, please be aware that there may be some discrepancies.
- Preheat the oven to 425 °F.
- Generously spray a 9X13 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, white sugar, 1 Tablespoon brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Measure the milk into a measuring cup. Add 1 Tablespoon of vinegar to the milk and allow it to sit for a few minutes, until it begins to bubble.
- In a separate medium bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Mix in the vanilla, and milk with the vinegar added. Then mix in the melted butter.
- Pour the wet ingredients (egg/milk mixture) into the dry ingredients (flour mixture). Stir until just combined.
- Pour this batter into the prepared baking pan.
- If you would like to use the add-ins, use a spatula or knife to mark out the four quarters of the pan (four corners). In one quarter section, sprinkle on the blueberries. You can use a toothpick to swirl these into ¼ of the batter if you want the toppings to be baked in but you can also lightly lay them on top so they can be seen after baked.
- In another quarter, sprinkle on the chocolate chips and swirl them in.
- In another quarter, lay your strawberry slices, fitting them together like a puzzle piece.
- In the last quarter, gently place the banana slices.
- Bake for 12 minutes then check for doneness. The pancake will slightly brown on top as it bakes, just make sure to cook until done.
