Easy Pumpkin Pancakes

Yay! It’s finally the time of year when we can eat all things pumpkin! This pumpkin pancakes recipe is fantastic, easy to make, and super delicious. The pancakes have just the right amount of pumpkin spice flavor, and taste like all the deliciousness of fall. They’re light and fluffy, and just slightly crisp at the edges, exactly how pancakes should be!

I started with my favorite pancake recipe, and made a few small adjustments to make them perfect for fall. We topped ours with whipped cream, chopped pecans, and maple syrup, and they were absolutely amazing! My nine year old cleaned her plate, then leaned back with a sigh and said, “Best. Breakfast. Ever.” I totally agree! This pumpkin pancakes recipe is so good, we may just be making them all year long. 🙂

How To Make Pumpkin Pancakes

Mix Dry Ingredients – In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, nutmeg, salt, baking powder, cloves and cinnamon.

Mix Wet Ingredients – Using a smaller bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin puree until they are fully blended together.

Combine & Rest – Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the flour mixture and then stir until everything has combined.  Once everything is mixed together, let the batter rest for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Cook – Warm your skillet or pancake griddle to about medium heat before cooking the pumpkin pancake batter.  Pour the batter onto the griddle and cook each side for about 3-4 minutes.  You’ll know it’s time to flip when there are large bubbles forming in the batter.

Toppings – Add whipped cream, nuts, homemade syrup or any of your other favorite toppings and serve.

Can You Freeze Pumpkin Spice Pancakes?

Of course you can!  In fact, every time I make these I always make an extra batch to put in the freezer so my kids can have these for breakfast before school.  Once they have completely cooled, place them into large Ziploc freezer bags.  If they haven’t fully cooled, condensation will form inside the bag which will lead to frost on the inside.  These can stay fresh in the freezer for at least two months.
