Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

WOW! Where has this Month gone?? I have been so busy with work that I have neglected my poor blog and wonderful blog readers! Will you ever forgive me? *insert sad puppy dog eyes here*

Thanksgiving will soon be here and if you are hosting this years party you are probably busy putting the finishing touches on your menu, d├ęcor and place settings. All of this on top of your normal daily routine. It can be hectic and even more so if you skip breakfast! So why not whip up tasty pancakes!! These are not just any ordinary pancakes. In honor of the season these are pumpkin spice pancakes. Last year we (hubby and I) enjoyed Thanksgiving at my sister-in-laws home. We had some extra pumpkin puree and decided to whip up some of these delicious pancakes. So this recipe has been tested! Everyone gave these two thumbs wayyy up. So don’t be stressed, hungry and grumpy on Thanksgiving by waiting till the dinner is ready to chow down. Have breakfast first!!

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes:


2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar


1.) In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt, stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.

2.) Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

  1. Those pancakes look really really good. What ever you do don't turn on the Food Network. So many recipes you just can't decide. I want to have Thanksgiving with Giada. Parmesean and Mozarella in mashed potatoes...genius.

  2. Those look so yummy ! Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving & everyday of the year!
