I absolute love gluten free pancakes, but does anyone feel put off making them sometimes because they’re just TOO. MUCH. EFFORT!?

All that mixing, spooning out, frying and flipping feels like a chore when all you want it to big out. But do not fear – I have the solution with my gluten free sheet pancakes!

These are basically gluten free buttermilk pancakes, but loaded with the usual toppings and baked in the oven.

Then simply slice your gluten free sheet pancake up into squares, drown them in maple syrup (or topping of choice!) and devour. So simple!

Gluten Free Sheet Pancake Recipe

What the hell is a sheet pancake?

I don’t know where the idea of a sheet pancake first came from, but I first got the idea to try it myself when I saw former Bake Off star Nadiya Hussain making them on the TV a few years ago.

Shamefully, I’ve been wanting to try them ever since, and have only actually got round to it recently!

And you know what? These are a GAME CHANGER!  


They’re super light and fluffy with that delicious pancake taste – and you can add whatever fillings your heart desires.

I’ve even seen people divide them into quarters with a different topping in each!

This time round I’ve made mine with in-season strawberry slices and chunks of deliciously melty dark chocolate. But you can add anything you fancy.

How do I make sheet pancakes?

All you need for this gluten free sheet pancake recipe is some basic ingredients and a baking tray (approx 24cm x 33cm x 1.5cm).

If you want a thinner pancake you can use a bigger tray – this recipe makes fairly thick pancakes but they are so, so fluffy and delicious!

There’s a full printable recipe card with the method below, but for your shopping list you’ll need:

  • 300g gluten free self-raising flour
  • 50g cornflour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 165ml buttermilk
  • 400ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g strawberries
  • 40g dark chocolate

You’ll also need anything you want to top these with – I love classic maple syrup but it also works amazingly with chocolate sauce or even ice-cream!

What can I put in my sheet pancakes?

I opted for in-season strawberries for my sheet pancakes, with some deliciously melted dark chocolate so they weren’t too sweet.

This is mainly because I wanted to load them up with maple syrup to serve!

However, you can fill these gluten free sheet pancakes with all sorts of different fillings. 

Apple and peanut butter make for a deliciously sweet and chewy sheet pancake, or why not try slices of banana for something sweet?

You could go classic with some blueberries or why not try dotting it with raspberries and white chocolate?

Loading them with chocolate chips is another favourite, or how about also adding some chopped nuts for texture?

If you wanted, you can even keep these plain and then stack them with lashings of sauce, fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt or even ice-cream.

Can I make these dairy free?

Full disclaimer: I have never tried making these dairy free. In our current lockdown situation I’m having to work with ingredients I have and can easily and cheaply get, which sadly means less experimentation!

You can make a dairy free buttermilk by mixing dairy free milk with lemon juice – this should create a ‘curdling’ effect which is essentially what buttermilk is.

In fact, if you don’t have buttermilk, you can make it by doing the same thing with normal cows milk as well!

I have also never tried a vegan version of these sheet pancakes so am not sure how they’d work with an egg replacer.

I promise once lockdown has lifted I will try and get hold of the ingredients to test this and update you – but if anyone does try this please let me know in the comments below how it turns out!

Gluten Free Sheet Pancakes

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

These gluten free sheet pancakes are a delicious buttermilk pancake mix with strawberries and dark chocolate. Bake them in the oven, slice up and serve with whatever toppings you want!


  • 300g gluten free self-raising flour
  • 50g cornflour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 165ml buttermilk
  • 400ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g strawberries
  • 40g dark chocolate


  1. Preheat the oven to 200'C / Fan 180'C / Gas Mark 4.
  2. To a large mixing bowl add the self-raising gluten free flour, cornflour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir and then add the milk, buttermilk, vanilla extract and eggs.
  3. Using a whisk, beat the mixture together just enough so that it combines to form a thick batter with no lumps. Leave to rest for a minute. While it's resting, grease a baking tray (approx 24cm x 33cm x 1.5cm) and line with baking paper.
  4. Pour the batter into the lined baking tray and smooth out to ensure it is even across the pan.
  5. Slice your strawberries and chop the dark chocolate into small pieces. Arrange them evenly on the pancake batter and then place the tray in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown on top - it should spring back when lightly pressed.
  6. Once baked, remove from the oven and cut into 8 squares - serve hot topped with whatever you like. Maple syrup or ice-cream is a favourite!


  • You can mix up the toppings for this - raspberries and white chocolate, plain chocolate chips, blueberries or sliced bananas work really well.
