I can’t let the pumpkin season pass by without making at least a single batch of pumpkin pancakes! Full of pumpkin flavor and spiced up with just the right amount of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger, these easy pumpkin pancakes are perfect for the Fall! Imagine serving them for breakfast over Thanksgiving holidays – it will surely make your family very happy and giggly from contentment :
If you love pumpkin, these will be right up your alley, because the pumpkin flavor really comes through in this recipe! They are so good and full of flavor, you can eat them plain, without any maple syrup! Just with a cup of sweetened coffee or tea. Of course, pouring REAL maple syrup over the pancakes will not hurt either!
They are hearty pumpkin pancakes: moist, light, fluffy, and not overly sweet! A great addition to your rotation of breakfast recipes. And not only in the Fall or on Thanksgiving – but on any day you feel like eating some pumpkin in the morning.
Very easy to make: just combine pumpkin, milk, melted butter, egg, and brown sugar – whisk it really well. Separately combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and add these dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Experiment with spices – add more of each spice if you want a spicier pancake. Cook on the griddle on medium heat: the pancakes puff up nicely. As an added benefit, the house smells really nice while you cook them.
