Fall is upon us. I love the flavors of fall. Butternut squash, pumpkin, turkey and cranberries. So for today I wanted to make a nice breakfast treat that fit in with those flavors. I am addicted to pancakes so I decided to make pumpkin pancakes. They are easy to make and full of flavor.

Pumpkin Pancakes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbs light brown sugar
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices into a big bowl.  Using a whisk combine the ingredients.

In a separate bowl combine the milk, pumpkin, egg and vegetable oil.  Whisk together.

Add the wet ingredients into the flour mixture.  Using a whisk combine until the flour mixture is just moistened.  You do not want to over-work the batter.  Don’t worry if it is lumpy.

The batter is a little thick, but makes awesome pancakes

Heat a skillet or griddle to medium.  Coat lightly with a little butter and then pour 1/4-1/2 cup of the pumpkin batter onto the skillet.  Cook until bubbles form on the top side.
