Pumpkin pancakes

Every Sunday my dad, grandmother, and whoever else from the family can go have breakfast at Denny’s. Its great to hang out with the family when I’m home to visit, especially when they have pumpkin pancakes on the menu.

Since pumpkin is everywhere this time of year, I decided to try to make them on my own.  I used this recipe from Food.com and it worked out pretty well.


  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch all spice or clove
  • 1 cup milk (I used almond milk)
  • 6 Tbsp pureed pumpkin
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1 egg

Whisk all your dry ingredients together – flour, sugar, baking powder, spices, salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together all your wet ingredients – egg, milk, pumpkin, melted butter. Fold the mixes together.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Pour in about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Cook on each side for about 3 minutes.

Serve with butter and syrup.

You’ll want to stock up on canned pumpkin puree so you can make these all year long. Yum!
