Pumpkin Pancakes

In celebration and introduction of a new and festive season, I invite you to serve up these delicious autumn pancakes.                                      

Pumpkin Pancakes

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
¼ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 2/3 cups buttermilk ( I used coconut milk, cause that’s what I had)
¾ cup pumpkin puree
4 tablespoons butter,  melted

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, pie spice, and salt.  Whisk until completely incorporated.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until well blended.  Stir in the buttermilk, pumpkin, and butter.  (I suggest adding a tsp of vanilla and ½ a tsp of cinnamon as well.)   Add the dry ingredients into the wet and whisk until smooth. 
Heat a griddle or cast-iron pan over moderately high heat.  Brush lightly with oil.  Working in batches, drop batter by ¼ cupsful onto the griddle.  Cook pancakes until bubbles form on top , and bottoms are golden brown, about 2 ½ minutes.  Serve hot with maple syrup.




  1. Oh Yummmmm! I love pumpkin pancakes soooo very much. (I’ve used William & Sonoma’s batter in the past, but it’s way too expensive now, so…) I can’t wait to try your recipe! 🙂
