Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes

Until I was 13, we lived in my grandpa's basement. Every Sunday after church, my brother and I would go upstairs and cook pancakes for the whole family. My grandpa would come in and tell us tales of how his father could flip pancakes without a spatula and to a little girl, that sounded absolutely amazing...it still is (I can't do it even today). My grandpa taught me to wait until bubbles form before flipping it, and to only flip once if at all possible to avoid losing the fluffiness of the pancakes...I miss that man!

I found this pumpkin pancake recipe from The Mother Load and am reposting it because it is amazing! They are so moist and fluffy I can't get enough of them. We tripled the recipe and froze most of it for later use and I'm so glad we did! These are perfect for fall!

So without further delay:

Light & Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pinch clove
1 1/4 cup low-fat milk
1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 egg

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, spices and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together milk, pumpkin, melted butter, and egg. Fold mixture into dry ingredients. Spray or grease a skillet and heat over medium heat: pour in 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Cook pancakes about 3 minutes per side. This recipe makes six 6-inch pancakes.

Side Note-
This can easily be doubled and frozen or stored in the refrigerator for a great breakfast later in the week.

  1. That looks really good. Last week I made my kids pancakes and used a banana instead of an egg and that was good but these look really good. And I hardly even like pancakes.

  2. Not sure what happened with my linky but I would love for you to try linking this recipe up again, it looks awesome. I actually think I'm going to make it this weekend for Sunday breakfast. Hope to see you again. :)

  3. Oh my gosh, my family would go head over heels for these!


  4. We love pumpkin pancakes. I first had them at IHOP and had to come home and imitate them. I am not a breakfast person, but love breakfast food. This will be a dinner this week!

  5. Yum! My kids are going to love these!

  6. I love pancakes and pumpkin so this sounds like a winner! Can't wait to give it a try :)

  7. DYING to try these! As much as I love pancakes and pumpkin, I've never had them together! Need to try! YUM...

  8. Can't wait to give them a try! Yummo!!!

  9. Holy moly, these sound delicious! I once tried to make peanut butter pancakes...didn't work out too well. They were a little hard to swallow. I think this recipe is a much better choice!

  10. I never thought to add pumpkin to pancakes but what avgreat idea. Pumpkin and maple syrup sounds like a good combination.
