I actually love making a special breakfast for dinner meal that includes pancakes too. My kids used to be so gleeful when I made them Sheet Pan Pancakes. The one thing I have always hated about making pancakes is how tedious it is. It just takes so long! Mornings have always been so hectic in my house and there usually isn’t time to stand over a hot griddle and turn the pancakes just as they start to bubble. Ugh. That’s why when I found this recipe for these delicious and super easy sheet pan pancakes, I was hooked.
What can you add to pancake mix to spice it up?
There are a lot of ways to make a boxed pancake mix taste even better. Simple additions like a tablespoon of lemon juice, a dash of baking soda or a bit of pure vanilla extract can do wonders to make your pancakes even more special. You can add a splash of maple syrup in the batter for a delightful built-in sweetness. Or for a bit more of a spicy fall-like finish, try sprinkling in some cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
What is the best pancake mix to make Sheet Pan Pancakes with?
The answer to this question is very subjective. Honestly, I haven’t found gigantic differences between the different brands. I have had good results from the budget-friendly store brand pancake mixes as well as the twice as expensive brands. Yes, I can make my own pancake mix from scratch and I have an awesome recipe for that.
Sometimes, I just don’t have the time or inclination to make my own mix and having a boxed mix handy has often been a lifesaver, especially when we have guests!

Williams Sonoma Flappin' Jack Pancake Mix.
Krusteaz Light & Fluffy Buttermilk Complete
King Arthur Baking Company Cloud 9 Pancake Mix
Bisquick Original Pancake and Baking Mix
Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk & Honey Frontier Flapjack & Waffle Mix
