Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes

Submitted by: INSANKNITTY

Introduction

This is moist and hearty hotcake loaded with pumpkin flavor brought out by traditional holiday spices.

You can freeze leftover pancakes in an an airtight freezer bag and reheat the next morning in the microwave (about 1 minute on high).

My children ask for this recipe instead of standard pancakes all the time. I love that they get a veggie in their breakfast, and that they don't want syrup with it!!!

Number of Servings: 18

Ingredients

    * 1 cup all-purpose flour
    * 1 cup wheat flour
    * 6 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
    * 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    * 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
    * 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    * 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1 and 2/3 cups buttermilk
    * 3/4 cup canned solid pack pumpkin
    * 3 large eggs - lightly beaten
    * 1 Tablespoon melted butter

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and the spices.

In a medium bowl, stir together the milk, pumpkin, eggs and melted butter.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until smooth.

Dollop the batter in 1/4 cup amounts onto a well-greased skillet or large frying pan set to medium heat. Cook until tops bubble and turn and cook other side - about 2 minutes per side.

If working in batches, place finished pancakes on a baking sheet in the oven set to 250 degrees until all are done.

Serve warm with softened butter and your favorite syrup. It's also great with just a dollop of whipped cream for a pumpkin pie breakfast feeling.

Makes 15 servings

  • Incredible!

    Was a hit with both my husband and son. I used egg beaters instead of eggs, applesauce instead of butter and 1% milk instead of buttermilk and they were great even with the low fat changes. To quote my son, " Tastes like pumpkin pie!" - 6/21/10

    I used 2% milk instead of buttermilk, and 3 tsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg (i.e. double the spices). They could still use a little more flavour, but very yummy and I'll make again. They are just as good re-heated. I enjoyed them without syrup! - 2/25/12

    Okay I commented that I didn't understand the serving size, but I got 18 pancakes, so a serving is one pancake. And also for our family they were too think, we are going to try them again next time adding 1/3 cup more buttermilk. Tastes great! - 1/1/09

  • Super moist when using real pumpkin instead of canned. Yummy! - 11/27/12

  • These were fantastic! The pumpkin flavor really comes through without being overpowered by the spices. I added vanilla, as I always do to pancakes, and used regular milk with 1tbsp of vinegar to sub for buttermilk. My family loved it and I will definitely make them again! - 10/7/12

  • Delicious! My four year old loved them even without syrup. I did add about a cup of water to the batter to thin it out because the pancakes were very thick. Wonderful fall recipe! - 9/2/12

  • Yum! I also added more of the spices, and used skim milk instead of buttermilk since that's all I had on hand, but they were delish! Highly recommend. - 12/10/11

  • Someone may have already mentioned this, but if you intend to make a big batch and freeze it, try popping the frozen pancakes into the toaster instead of the microwave. Tastes like you just made them! - 10/24/11
