Pumpkin Pancakes

Earlier in the week I made a batch of pumpkin chocolate chip muffins to take to work and giveaway to friends and neighbours.  I only had a big can of pumpkin and didn't use it all in the muffins.  So, what does one do with a cup of pumpkin??  This morning I did a search and found a good looking recipe for pumpkin pancakes.  A few tweaks later, we had a delicious breakfast!

Until this winter, I had only experienced pumpkin in the form of pumpkin pie.  Now I have a recipe for pumpkin soup that I love, a recipe for pumpkin muffins and pancakes.  I can see a pumpkin patch in our yard this summer!

Pumpkin Pancakes
(adapted from LoveBakedIn at

  • 2 cups flour ( used 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat)

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 cups milk

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin

  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten

  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter, melted

  • *Mix dry ingredients in one bowl.
    *Mix wet ingredients in another.
    *Pour wet into dry.  Stir to combine.
    *Scoop by the 1/3 cupful into a hot pan.  (I had to turn mine down quite a bit so they didn't burn).

    Gabriel and I ate these with maple syrup, Sam and Josie-Grace ate them plain.  Both ways were good!

    1. I have tried several pumpkin pancake recipes, but none have been "The" one. Will try this one and let you know.
