Fluffy moist pumpkin pancakes that are full of fall flavor….yes please! These pancakes are topped with a whipped topping with extra brown sugar then maple syrup is drizzled on top! Pumpkin plus added spice in the pancakes tastes amazing. If you have only used a pancake mix before, it’s time to try to make them from scratch yourself. Try it a few times, then go back to your box and see which you prefer.
It’s actually easy to get the right kind of pancake you prefer. If you like thick and fluffy pancakes don’t put too much milk, if you like them thinner add more milk to batter…..pretty easy. Think of it this way, you either open up a bag or container of flour or your box mix….not that different.
Here are a few tips that I have found to help a successful pancake. The temperature of the ingredients is key. Using room temperature butter, eggs, and milk will help the pancakes rise. Don’t over mix the batter, no matter how much you want to keep stirring! Pancake batter should look lumpy and gross……have trust they will turnout great!
You can really make them any flavor you want. I usually add any dry flavor or spice such as, chocolate powder or cinnamon to the flour mixture baking powder and salt,and whisk. If I use cream cheese I substitute and add with butter. I can’t wait until the holiday season, I want to try gingerbread pancakes.Print
I use a large pancake griddle so you don’t have to make one at a time. Nobody wants to flip pancakes all morning!
These Pumpkin Pancakes tasted great with the combination of whipped topping and syrup….or whatever you can think up, go crazy!
Here is the recipe for whipped topping, just in case you forgot it at the store.Print
Let pancakes cool a little before adding whipped topping, or just add right before serving then top with maple syrup. These pancakes can be refrigerated for about 4-5 days, they reheat well and still taste great. Don’t forget, you can make a bunch and freeze individually, that way you have homemade pancakes when you don’t have a lot of time. I usually make a ton and save for the weekdays. It makes it easy for me to feed three kids breakfast at the crack of dawn before school starts.
