Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe

This tasty pumpkin pancake recipe is a simple and delicious choice for Fall. Mix up your morning routine a bit for this recipe that smells great even before you cook.

dry ingredients

There were a lot of ingredients for this recipe that I did not have, so I to did a quick supermarket run. The original recipe actually calls for ground ginger (1/2 tsp.) which I left out in this batch.

dry ingredients added to mixing bowl

Add the dry ingredients to the larger bowl where you will mix everything together later. It’s less of a mess to pour the wet ingredients into the dry, so you don’t have flour flying everywhere.

wet ingredients and mixed

Wet ingredients + scoop of pumpkin. The smell of the pumpkin makes me think of baby food. You can use fresh pumpkin too, but I’m saving that for this year’s carving. Pour the wet into the dry, and mix just enough to combine until it smells like holidays.

    Pumpkin mania was getting too much for me, but hey, a pumpkin pancake can’t hurt right? This looks delicious! We don’t get that pumpkin mad over here in London, but this is definitely not a scary pumpkin recipe. It looks positively tasty, just a slight shade of blushing orange…not crazy like 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
