Pumpkin Pancakes!

Last year I made homemade pumpkin pancakes for the first time.  They were so delicious, thick, and filling.  This year, I pulled out the same recipe.  It's from  Here are some pics and instructions for super easy pumpkin pancakes from scratch.

Pumpkin PancakesMy annotations are in italics.
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

STEP ONE: In a bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar.
STEP TWO: Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt in a separate bowl.
STEP THREE: Stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine. Do not overmix. Pancake batter should be lumpy and bumpy, even when you make a Bisquick mix.
STEP FOUR: Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. (I use unsalted butter). Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
This batter is thick, so the pancakes take a little longer than regular pancakes.  Just be patient and try not to rush it.  If you want a thinner batter, add more milk.
And they are ready to be topped with maple syrup and be eaten!

My daughter and I really enjoyed these pancakes.  In fact, she had one pumpkin pancake at daycare every day that week.  She loves them! 

I hope that you try this recipe and be wowed by your culinary skills - you know you have them!  A couple of weekends from now, I really want to try pumpkin waffles!
