Back in the day I wanted to make pumpkin pancakes. I tried several homemade recipes and a few pumpkin pancake mixes. The results were never good. Either the pancakes came out slimy and gooey, or they were super flat. Then my daughter’s preschool made pumpkin pancakes that were fantastic. Good flavor and texture plus the recipe was EASY.
So, I posted the recipe. It was ages ago, and I’ve since decided that I need to do an update on that recipe. You see, the original version I posted uses Krusteaz buttermilk pancake mix. And while Bisquick mix worked pretty well for that recipe, those two pancakes mixes are actually pretty different, so it wasn’t ideal for Bisquick. I recently came up with a modified version using Bisquick and that is what I am sharing today!
Yep, both pumpkin pancake recipes use pancake mix. I am a “from scratch” pancake maker, but when it comes to pumpkin pancakes, pancake mix is where it’s at. The results are just so much better than every other way I’ve tried.
Now Bisquick lovers everywhere can make the famed preschool pumpkin pancakes, too. Equal opportunity pumpkin pancakes FTW!
- 2 cups Bisquick pancake mix
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- ½ cup pumpkin puree
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- 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!
