How to freeze sourdough sheet pan pancakes

Freezing sourdough sheet pan pancakes is a great way to have a convenient and delicious breakfast option on hand whenever you need it. Here’s how to do it:

  • Cool the Pancakes: Allow the sourdough sheet pan pancakes to cool completely on a wire rack. It’s important to ensure they are fully cooled to prevent them from becoming soggy when frozen.
  • Slice or Portion: Once cooled, decide how you want to portion the pancakes for freezing. You can either slice the sheet into individual servings or leave it whole and wrap it for freezing.
  • Wrap for Freezing: If you’re freezing individual servings, place each pancake between layers of parchment paper or wax paper to prevent sticking. Then, stack the pancakes and wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Alternatively, if you’re freezing the entire sheet, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Place each serving in a freezer bag.
  • Store in the freezer: Place the freezer bags in the freezer. They can be stored for 2-3 months.
  • Reheat: When ready to enjoy, simply take out the desired number of pancakes from the freezer and reheat them in the microwave, toaster oven, or conventional oven until warmed through. Enjoy with your favorite toppings and sides!

  • In a separate bowl combine the melted butter, milk, vanilla extract, sourdough starter, egg, and sugar. Mix until combined. I find that warming the milk with the butter on the stove helps the ingredients mix well together.
wet ingredients
  • Then, pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, and mix until combined. If the mixture is too thick, add a tablespoon or so more of milk.
  • Pour the mixture into your baking pan and spread it evenly.
  • If adding inclusions to your pancakes, add them on top of the batter and customize to your liking.
  • Bake the sourdough sheet pan pancakes for 12-14 minutes or until they start to brown.
  • Top them with maple syrup and butter if desired and enjoy them warm!
