Description

Thick batter cooks up into fluffy, lightly spiced Pumpkin Pancakes! Perfect on a chilly school morning!

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Spelt Flour (You May Substitute All-Purpose Flour)
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoons Ginger
  • 1-½ cup Non-fat Milk
  • ½ cups Canned Or Fresh Pumpkin
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Vegetable Oil

Preparation

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. In a small bowl whisk together the milk, pumpkin, eggs and oil. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined, being careful not to over-mix. The batter will be thick! Ladle batter in desired portions over a hot nonstick pan or griddle and flip when bubbles begin to break on the tops. Cook another few couple of minutes and remove from griddle.

Liv says these are best served plain and drenched with maple syrup, but I prefer mine topped with sliced banana, a spoonful of raisins and a sprinkle of walnuts!

I made these this morning and thought they were ok. The batter is thick, but the pancakes are really thick, even with spreading them out on the griddle. I think if I make them again I would definitely add a little more milk and some more sugar. I added 2 Tbsp, but they were not the slightest bit sweet (I guess I like my pancakes to be a little more sweet so I don’t have to use so much syrup). Anyway, they were good and the kids liked them, just think next time around I’ll make a few changes.

For whatever reason, pancakes & I have problems . . . do you know what modifications, if any, would be needed to convert this recipe to waffles instead?

The fall weather makes me want to make all things pumpkin and apple and ginger. These sound so yummy and just right for this time of year when the mornings are so crisp!

I misplaced my Pumpkin Pancake recipe so I tried this one. I’m sorry I’m not leaving a positive review, but I read everyone else’s reviews before I try a recipe and find them very helpful. For me, I want to taste pumpkin and spices and I didn’t in these pancakes. I even added a full cup of pumpkin and not the 1/2 C that was called for. I still found them to be lacking in flavor.

These were liked by all. I thought they were a little lacking in sweetness (and pumpkin flavor), but still a very good pancake.

Another believer here. Wow what a recipe. I did add 2 tablespoons of sugar and let the family choose if they wanted chocolate or white chocolate chips added in while pancakes were on the griddle. We will make this again and again. Perfect recipe for the first day of fall.

These were the perfect combination of sweet and spice. I didn’t have spelt flour so I just used my unbleached all purpose. We will be putting these into our regular rotation :)

I will chalk up my pancakes to user error – I used half AP flour and half whole wheat. Way too thick! Otherwise, I followed the recipe and the *flavor* was out of this world! I’m going to try again with just AP, as in my little podunk town there’s no spelt flour for miles. Thank you for a great recipe!
