Pineapple Upside Down Sheet Pan Pancakes are quite the mouthful, but a glorious brown sugar pineapple sweetened mouthful. The best part about this recipe is that you make one large batch and bake it!
Have you ever gotten up on a Sunday morning with grand visions of a beautiful family breakfast, only to be regretting it after 5 minutes in front of the stove? Whether you are making single pancakes at a time or have multiple pans going at once, it still takes forever. That's why this new trend of Sheet Pan Pancakes are on the rise. Simply make one batter, pour it into a greased pan and bake for 15 minutes. Perfectly fluffy pancakes in no time.
When making something really sweet, I like to add whole wheat to the mixture to cut down on the sweetness. The nutty flour blend from Krusteaz pairs perfectly with pineapple juice and brown sugar. My go-to Krusteaz Honey Wheat Pancake mix features a blend of soft wheat flours with real honey, so you get a fluffy, golden stack of goodness every time, whether in the frying pan or in the oven sheet pan style!
This is a great breakfast to serve a crowd or at a brunch. You can easily feed 12-15 people and the squares are very filling. The golden pineapple slices and marachino cherries add a burst of color to the plate too. Since there was butter and brown sugar cooked into the pineapple sheet pan pancakes, I decided to not serve them with syrup. They were perfectly sweet and moist, so no one complained.
