What are sheet-pan pancakes, you ask? Well, they are pancakes made on a sheet pan in the oven instead of on a pan on the stovetop. Essentially, you prepare pancake batter (Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix is a popular option) like you normally would, pour it in a sheet pan that's greased or prepped with a silicon baking mat, add toppings, bake it in the oven, let cool, cut into square pieces, and voilà! You've got yourself easy pancakes that are made for a breakfast crowd.

In their TikTok video, user @themhoffers states that you put the sheet-pan pancakes into an oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes. However, since every oven and pancake mix is different, we recommend keeping a close eye on your dish.
