Keeping with the summer fruit theme lately, I made our sheet pan hotcakes with blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and chocolate chunks. Spread the ingredients all around equally if you’d like. I know my audience at home, so I kept our toppings in separate rows.

It’s kind of funny, I realized when I was making these that they are actual pan cakes. A sheet pan of cakes.
Then I was like “hotcakes….is that one or two words?” Apparently, hotcakes can be used in lieu of pancakes and hot cakes are literally just cakes that are hot. Perhaps freshly baked? Which by the way, these sheet pan hotcakes make the house smell glorious.
For this Easy Sheet Pan Hotcakes recipe, there wasn’t really a recipe at all. I took some Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix and mixed with melted butter and some water. Instantly, I regretted not infusing more batter mix-ins. So don’t live with regrets like me!
sample batter mix-ins:
- Vanilla or almond extract
- Honey, agave or maple syrup
- Fruit jam or preserve swirl
Then, I spread the batter onto my Great Jones Holy Sheet. Lastly, it’s time for the toppings!
sample hotcake toppings:
- Chocolate chips or chunks
- Cinnamon apples
This truly is one of the easiest things I’ve ever made for breakfast.
To make your sheet of hotcakes:
- Follow directions on the box to make the batter.
- Optional: Add melted butter or other mix-ins.
- Grease your baking sheet or lay down parchment paper.
- Spread pancake batter evenly on the sheet pan.
- Add your toppings. Go crazy with it.
- Bake at 350 for about 7 or 8 minutes. Test with toothpick.
- Remove from oven, let sit and cool.
- Cut up your sheet o’ hotcakes and serve with a smile.
Of course, if you are extra fancy and want to make your own pancake batter. Go for it! I baked mine at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes, but ovens vary.
I was waiting for mine to turn golden, but they were super white. And were very done. Baking the pancake mix will make them look different when they come out. Obviously, keep your eye on it.
Test with a toothpick until it’s done to your liking.
Drizzle with syrup, top with a big mound of fluffy whip or whatever the heck you feel like doing. You are the pancake impresario! The conductor of this scrumptious breakfast symphony.
Last but not least, enjoy!
