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.

    Wow!!! I got a huge thumbs up from my husband and I think these are absolutely delicious!!! We will keep making these.

    1. Hi! You’d have better luck freezing the pancakes themselves. Just make a batch, let them cool and freeze in a zip tight freezer bag. You can thaw them, or just heat from frozen in the microwave. Hope that helps 🙂

    Great recipe, made half of it just to try, will make it every time I have pumpkin puree made at home in the oven.

  3. 5 stars
    Loved this recipe! The pancakes came out wonderfully soft and fluffy, the flavors were warm and so delicious! Quick question about the nutrition facts: are the nutrition facts for one pancake as the serving size? Thank you!! Take care!

    I have made this recipe a half dozen times now. It doubled nicely for an extra large batch. They are so thick that they can be reheated in the toaster. Even as leftovers the next day, these are delicious. I highly recommend this recipe!

  5. I made these exactly as described and they turned out delicious. I’ve added this recipe to my favorites collection and will be making much use of it. Thanks!
