They are sweet and just the right amount of pumpkin-y and encapsulates fall in all of the best ways, but in breakfast form. 

Please make these, you will love them, just as much as my family did!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and salt. 
  2. In a separate large mixing bowl, add the pumpkin puree, eggs, melted butter, and whole milk. Whisk until smooth and fully combined. 
  3. Pour the pumpkin mixture over the flour mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir until just combined, do not over-mix; otherwise, you may end up with dense and/or gummy pancakes. 
  4. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Brush a little oil or spray with non-cooking spray to make sure the batter does not stick. 
  5. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the batter per pancake onto the hot griddle. Cook until bubbles form on top of the batter, around 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the bottom as well, another 2 minutes or so.
  6. Serve immediately with maple syrup, a pat of butter, and some chopped pecans if desired.
