I’ve been making these pumpkin pancakes for years!  They’re a fall staple in our house, and we always look forward to them on a chilly weekend morning.  While it isn’t quite feeling like autumn here yet, these pancakes have already made a couple of appearances at my kid’s request!

How to Make Pumpkin Pancakes:

  • To start go ahead and pre-heat a large non-stick griddle.  You can butter the griddle or spray with non-stick cooking spray if desired.
  • Next, you will whisk together your dry ingredients.  We have the usual suspects of flour, baking powder, and salt.  But the great flavor comes from the cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

  • Then, in a second bowl whisk together the pumpkin puree with the granulated and brown sugar, vanilla, melted butter, eggs, and milk.

  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients with a spatula until just combined.  The batter will be a tad lumpy.  Then allow the batter to sit for 5 minutes.
  • I use a 1/3 cup measure to pour these pumpkin pancakes on the griddle.  Use the bottom of the measuring cup to gently spread the pancake batter out.  The pancakes will need to cook for about 4 minutes per side.

    I made this recipe this weekend and the pancakes turned out perfect. My whole family loved them! One question, have you tried making the batter the night before to save time in the morning? Thank you!

    Made these for breakfast this morning (yes I know it’s Easter but I always have pumpkin in the cupboard lol), and they were absolutely amazing. This is the only recipe I’ll be using from now on – thank you!

    1. I have. Just put them in a freezer zip lock bag. I’m then when I want them just out in the toaster oven like a frozen waffle or the microwave for 30 seconds. Come out great.

    2. You can freeze pancakes.. we do it all the time. Just be sure to put in an air tight container. We make them the size to fit in the toaster. Or you can put them in the microwave with a mug of water so they don’t dry out. Hope this helps.

  5. These are delicious! My kiddos and I loved them. I am dairy free so i did oatmilk instead on milk and omitted the butter, added a little bit more pumpkin to make up for it. They came out perfect!

    I made these this morning, but I used gluten free flour since I was having a gluten free friend over for brunch. They were sooo fluffy and amazing! I topped them with a chai spiced glaze. Wow! Compliments all around.
