Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 large eggs - separated
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
Sift together dry ingredients. Combine milk, egg yolks, butter and pumpkin puree. Stir into dry ingredients until just blended. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter. Pour onto hot, oiled griddle, about 1/3 cup at a time. Cook until tops bubble and turn and cook other side.

For fun at Halloween, try sprinkling completed pancakes with that orange-colored sugar (usually found near the muffin and cake mixes in the grocery store.)

Mr Breakfast would like to thank caroline for this recipe.

You made our Halloween morning! Kids and husband agree... super good! I also added 1/8 or so teaspoon of nutmeg with the cinnamon.

Really good. I took advice from the comment by 'Barbieg' and added a packet of instant oats (regular) to the batter. And also a pinch of nutmeg like many people here. Texture and and taste was awesome.

Very nice! I added some freshly grated nutmeg, maybe 1/2 teaspoon or so. I though that the comment from "Barbieg" was really interesting about adding a flavored oatmeal packet to the batter. Maybe next time. And there will be a next time.

Very easy. Great moist texture. I added 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Tasted great with butter and maple syrup. Thanks and Happy Halloween Mr Breakfast!

We loved them. Topped them with whipped cream and cinnamon / sugar. Also added a little vanilla to the batter.

Really good but it definitely needs the vanilla and nutmeg added as other people have suggested.

These turned out perfect! I also substituted canola oil for butter. They were very very tasty! My daughter had a "happy plate" for once!

This was great. The only substitution I made was Canola oil for melted butter.

I also added about 1/8 tsp. each of nutmeg, ginger and just a pinch of clove. Instead of just mixing in the sugar, I gradually added it to my egg whites while whipping to give them more structure and hold more air ( I like fluffy pancakes, and this were just that!) They were a great autumn football sunday breakfast.

Added a pinch of nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. Also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and used Splenda and Smart Balance. My husband thought they were great!

I too used more brown sugar and added 1/4 tbs. of nutmeg and cloves. I also added more milk to thin the mix as I like thinner, crisper pancakes over thick moist cakes. Made for overnight guests and it was a hit. Will keep this recipe.

I used brown sugar instead of white, and used a bit extra (until I could taste a bit of sweet). I sold them to my kids as "pumpkin pie pancakes", because the word 'pie' makes them extra special, you know. Even my littlest, who declared upon seeing them that she didn't want to eat them on general principles, dug in and ate like a champ!

You are correct sir (or chick). There's a few fancy folks out there who like to roast and mash their own pumpkin (or butternut squash, mmmmm). But for us regular Joes, canned pumpkin will do just fine.

I haven't tried this recipe, but is pumpkin puree the same thing as plain old canned pumpkin?
