Pumpkin Spice Pancake Ingredients

Ingredients

Here are a few of the basic pantry staples that you will need to get started with this easy recipe.

  • All purpose flour – this is my go-to flour choice for most recipes.
  • Pureed pumpkin – pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Baking powder – for making the pancakes rise and become fluffy.
  • Brown sugar – great for adding a caramel-y sweetness to the batter.
  • Milk – whatever you have in the fridge works.
  • Egg – we’re currently loving farm fresh eggs!
  • A combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger make up the spices, you may substitute pumpkin pie spice.

Recipe Notes

  • Keep the pancakes warm before serving by placing them on a lined baking sheet in an oven set to the lowest temperature.  Alternately place them in a covered casserole dish to stay warm.
  • I like to make a big batch and store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
  • Leftover pancakes can be frozen, separate each with parchment paper and place inside of a freezer bag for easy access.
  • Reheat pancakes for one minute in the microwave.

Tips and tricks

  • If the pan begins to burn the cooking spray, wipe it with paper towel to cool it off and start again. It’s easy for the pan to over heat after repeated use and start to burn the pancakes.
  • Make sure the stove is set to medium, this helps prevent the pancakes from burning. If they start to cook too quickly, reduce to medium-low heat.
  • Pancake batter should always be thick but not lumpy, avoid over mixing and allow the batter to rest for a few minutes so that the baking powder has time to activate.

  • Preheating the frying pan before dropping in the batter will create consistent, fluffy pancakes every time.
  • Prevent the pancakes from sticking to the skillet by using non stick cooking spray between batches. Olive oil or melted butter may also be used.
  • Do not flip the pancakes until bubbles begin to form and pop. The outer edge should also begin to look more opaque.

Substitutions

Don’t be too quick to run out to the grocery store!  Try a few of these substitutions instead…

  • Use buttermilk when possible, it tends to create a more moist, fluffy pancake.  Whole milk or whatever you have in the fridge works too.
  • Real butter is always preferred but margarine or vegetable oil may be used in a pinch.
  • Make your own homemade pumpkin puree from the abundance of fresh pumpkin in the fall.
  • Try these fun variations!  Add peanut butter & mini chocolate chips to the batter.  Or add 1 tsp of vanilla extract and fresh berries to the pumpkin mixture.
