Holiday Season Pumpkin Pancakes

Updated: Feb 3, 2022

On of our Saturday morning traditions is to wake up and eat a nice breakfast and relax for as long as the day will allow us. I look forward to getting my bacon, eggs, and pancakes after a week of hustle and bustle. Since we had leftover homemade pumpkin puree we decided to add that to the pancake recipe that was passed down to us. Anybody else do pumpkin flavored recipes and treats into December? I do! These were so good I thought it would be sinful to not share the love!

Prep Time: 10-15 minutes

Bake Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yields: 15-18 small pancakes

The Cast and Crew

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

  • 1/2 tbsp coconut sugar (you can also use the same measurement of regular sugar)

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 3/4 tsp baking soda

  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • 1 1/2 tsps ground cinnamon

  • 1 tsp ground ginger

  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk

  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 tbsps melted butter (and more for greasing the skillet)

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Grab a large glass bowl and measure out 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour.

Add in 1 1/2 tsps baking powder.

Sprinkle in 1/2 tsp salt.

Measure out 1/2 tbsp sugar, as you can see I couldn't find my 1/2 tbsp! Grr... we make do. We have been using Coconut Sugar as a healthier alternative, but you could also use regular sugar at the same measurement, judgment free.

Don't forget to put in the delicious spices to give it that holiday flavor. Add 1 1/2 tsps ground cinnamon!
