These fluffy pancakes are perfectly paired with a bit of maple syrup, browned butter, or any other topping your heart desires. Of course, you can always enjoy it alongside a pumpkin spice latte.
What You Need
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 cup milk
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 large eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
butter, as needed
What To Do
In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
In another bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree and milk, and then incorporate the eggs and vanilla until smooth.
Slowly incorporate the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined.
Melt some butter on a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once the butter has become foamy, lower the heat to medium-low and start to ladle the pancakes into the skillet.
Cook the pancakes until small bubbles start to form and the pancake has become golden underneath. This will usually take about 3 minutes.
Once golden on one side, flip over and cook until the bottom also becomes golden, about another 3 more minutes.
Repeat until all the batter has been used.
Feel free to mix in chocolate chips, pecans, or even blueberries.
