EmailPinterest39Facebook36Twitter0Google+2StumbleUpon0

I have finally found a pumpkin pancake recipe that I like! I’ve tried mixes, I’ve tried making them from scratch…and generally the pancakes come out flat and gooey. Cate’s preschool recently made pumpkin pancakes and shared the recipe they used…and they’re perfect! Yea for preschool teachers!

Easy, Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes
 
Adapted by me from a recipe on FoodNetwork.com
Author:
Recipe type: Main Dish, Breakfast
Ingredients
  • 3 cups buttermilk pancake mix (I like Krusteaz the best, Bisquick worked too)
  • 2 cups cold water
  • ⅔ cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
Instructions
  1. In a medium/large bowl, whisk all the ingredients until just blended (batter should have lumps). Spray heavy griddle or skillet with nonstick spray and heat griddle over medium heat. Spoon 2 tablespoon (I did ¼ cup) batter unto griddle to form each pancake. Cook until edges are drying and bubbles start to pop, turn and cook a few minutes longer. Serve with lots of butter and maple syrup!

    Ooh these look super fluffy, which is absolutely the best when it comes to pancakes!!

  2. I love the Cook’s Illustrated from scratch buttermilk pancakes. MMMMMmmmmm!

  3. Mmm. Pumpkin pancakes are a favorite in our household. They taste great with Pumpkin Maple Syrup, too!

    Pumpkin Maple Syrup
    Combine together the following ingredients:
    1 C. maple syrup
    1 1/4 C. pumpkin
    1/4 tsp. cinnamon (could also use pumpkin pie spice, or other spices to taste)

    These look perfectly pumpkiny. I’ve tried making these before with kinda iffy results – will try this recipe for sure!

    I also really like this recipe. However, when using Krusteaz pancake mix, which I agree is the best, add a about 1 tsp. of baking powder and 1 tsp. of vanilla. This will make whatever pancake variation you choose from this basic recipe a pancakes fluffier, and really bring out the flavors of the spices! Also, you can substitute sweet potatoes for the pumpkin to make sweet potato pancakes, which are also awesome!

  8. Now I want those for lunch. Yummy.

    Glad you liked them. When Ferneyn made these I told her I didn’t want any because all the pumpkin pancakes I had before were slimy. When the kids gobbled them up I had one and was converted! Happy Halloween!

    Approximately how many pancakes does this make?

    great question…I always forget to say how much the recipes serve!

    I think about 15 3-4 inch pancakes…not sure EXACTLY…but I know we each had 2-3 pancakes, there are 4 of us, and we had about 4 extra! :)

    I will definitely have to give these a try! Last time I attempted pumpkin pancakes they ended up in the trash (I just couldn’t get it right, and not only was the texture and taste off, but I burned them to top it off). I think I will also try Steve’s suggestion above to add baking powder and vanilla. Here’s hoping I’ll get it right this time!

      I’m definitely a make-from-scratch pancake girl, but all my from scratch pumpkin pancakes were terrible…this recipe worked like a charm!

  17. Now the pancake mix you use, is it a just add water mix or do you add pumpkin in lieu of eggs and oil.

    • Jane Maynard

      so, the Krusteaz mix (which is the one I prefer for this recipe) is one that you just add water to. I HAVE done it with bisquick, which I think usually asks for eggs and/or oil (I can’t really remember)…but yeah, if you do the krusteaz, it makes sense to this recipe and turns out great. good question!

  18. Bookmarked your blog. I really have to say thank you for sharing. Definitely worth the time away from my studies.

    i just made these because I wanted pumkin pancakes on this halloween morning. I must of done something wrong because they wer not good. No flavor of pumpkin and dense…so disappointed!

    • Jane Maynard

      I’m sorry Eva, I AM surprised! this is a staple at our preschool and the recipe always turns out. what pancake mix did you use?

    • Jane Maynard

      also, comment number 7 is from someone who also uses this recipe, and he has his own tweaks to it…maybe that will help? but honestly, I am very surprised they didn’t turn out. I’m sure super disappointing for you!

    These turned out good. They were a little thick when I made regular pancakes, but they were perfect as pancake puffs! I used a mini muffins tin and cooked them @ 350°F til the tops were cooked. I used the pancake maple syrup recipe above & my 21 mo old couldn’t get enough! Great recipe to incorporate veggies for breakfast

    • Jane Maynard

      what a fun idea to make the puffs! we might have to try that sometime, thanks for commenting, lora!

    These were SO good! I added more water and pumpkin, as the batter looked too thick. Also made the pumpkin syrup recipe, above in comments. Definitely a new family favorite in our home!
