Put You in The Mood for Fall – Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin is one of fall’s finest ingredients. When else can you use a can of vegetables to make a sweet dessert?  I’ll be waiting to hear someone comment about their grandmother’s delicious canned asparagus torte that they make every spring….Or Not.

This recipe for Pumpkin Pancakes is Easy as Pie (and it tastes like it too)! And you probably have these ingredients already in your pantry. Don’t you hate hunting for random ingredients at the grocery store?

Here’s all the ingredients your need:


2 Cups Pure Canned Pumpkin

6 Eggs

1 Cup Flour

2/3 Cup Milk

6 T  Brown Sugar

1 t Baking Soda

1 t Cinnamon

1/2 t Salt

1/2 t Nutmeg

4 T Butter

Combine all the ingredients (minus the butter) in a large bowl.  Stir until well blended.  Then add butter and batter to a hot skillet.  Flip over when set.


Add a little cream and a fork and you have yourself some yummy pumpkin pancakes!


What’s your favorite fall flavor or fixin’?  Please share!

    Yum! Yum! Yum! I have made these before for my family and they are a big hit!
    Last weekend we were in Ashville, NC and there is a restaurant called Tupelo Honey's and I had sweet potato pancakes. They were just as good as the pumpkin! I may have to give them a try at home too.

    We LOVE pumpkin pancakes (made with pumpkin, sweet potato, or other winter squash ;)! Another favorite here is pumpkin pie pudding, and my newest recipe to try will be pumpkin snickerdoodles. 🙂

    here in Australia I do not think we can buy pumpkin in a tin can!! I would need to cook a real pumpkin first…. but because I do this ALL the time at the moment making my babies their food I may just put aside 2 cups and surprise my family with this recipe……

    they sound yummy

    thanks xx

    Yummm! It was great meeting you and your husband the other night! I'm so glad I read your FAQ. I was thinking about how I asked you if you would have more kids and how that might be pretty rude of me to ask. I was a bit relieved to see it was a FAQ and that I'm not the only one!

    Looking forward to "following" you and learning more about you! Hope to see you again sometime!

    What a great idea! I will definitely have to try them. I'm a big fan of your vegetables = dessert concept. I may have to whip up a batch of zucchini bread while I'm at it!

    We are going to try these this weekend. I have a favorite Pumpkin Waffle recipe that makes a bunch of extra to freeze. And Pumpkin Muffins are usually in our baking rotation once we slow down on the apple baking happening lately.
