  • large bowl
  • wooden spoon
  • large frying pan


Pumpkin Pancake Batter

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1.5 cups buttermilk see tips section if you don’t have buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp butter for cooking

Toppings (Optional)

  • Honey and Powdered Sugar
  • Chocolate Chips and Maple Syrup
  • Nutella and Whip Cream


Pumpkin Pancake Prep

  • Firstly, gather all of your ingredients. If you don’t have buttermilk at home, see Tip #1 before continuing. (see image 1)
  • Secondly, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Then set aside for later. (see image 1)
  • Next lightly beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Then add in pumpkin purée and pumpkin spice and mix until well combined. (see images 2 and 3)
  • Add a third of the flour mixture and a third of the buttermilk into the large bowl and mix well. Continue to do this until all ingredients are added, and batter is completely mixed. (see images 4 and 5)
  • Leave batter to rest for 10-15 minutes while you preheat your frying pan to medium. Grease pan with butter for cooking. See Tip #2 if you want thicker pancakes.

Flipping Your Pancakes

  • Once the pan is evenly heated, scoop half a ladle’s worth of pancake batter into the pan. Allow it to cook for 1-3 minutes or until the edges begin to firm or the middle starts to bubble before flipping with a spatula. (see image 6)
  • Flip and cook other side for 1-2 minutes. You should see the pancake start to rise off the pan. Then remove from pan and set aside on a plate. Repeat cooking steps 1 and 2 for the rest of the batter. (see image 7)
  • Finally garnish with toppings! I like powdered sugar, and honey with these pancakes. But you can use chocolate chips and maple syrup too. Get creative! Add some whip cream on there. Enjoy! (see images 8 and 9)
