To make things even simpler, I used a pancake mix.  When you add the right ingredients to it I think it tastes homemade.

What is in Pancake Mix?

The answer is…it looks a lot like what you would put in your pancakes.  With a few differences.

  1.  Enriched Flour-you will notice in a pancake mix that there are things like niacin, iron and riboflavin added to the flour.  That can sound a little scary but the truth is that it gives the flour some added nutrition that can be lost when the mix is processed.
  2. Corn Starch-While most of us don’t add corn starch to our pancake recipes, it can be a nice ingredient to add a fluffy texture.  In fact, my favorite cookie recipe has corn starch in the ingredients.
  3.  Dextrose-a simple sugar
  4. Palm Oil-The same oil used in things like Nutella.
  5. Salt-something that most of us would add anyway.
  6. Sugar-Yes, that is two forms of sugar but still only 2 grams per serving.
  7. DATEM-An emulsifier used in baked goods to strengthen gluten.
  8. Distilled Monoglycerides-An emulsifier that does contain a very small amount of trans fat.

Making Sheet Pan Pancakes from a Mix

To make these sheet pan pancakes we are going to mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl with a whisk.  Adding things like vanilla extract and buttermilk can really up the flavor.

Then pour the batter into a greased sheet pan and spread it out into an even layer.  I like using an off-set spatula for the job.

There are so many things you can add to the batter to make it extra special.  This time I decided to add mini chocolate chips to half of the pan.

Bake the pancake in a 425 degree preheat oven for 14-16 minutes or until your pancake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

You can easily get 20 nice size pancakes from the pan.  Just use a sharp knife and carefully cut them into squares.  Because we sprayed the pan generously in the beginning, they are super easy to remove.

I love serving them with just a pat of butter and warm maple syrup.  But that doesn’t mean you have to stop there.  Peanut butter, Nutella, fresh berries, whipped cream would all be great…the possibilities are endless!  Now let’s go rock the school year!
