Pumpkin Pancakes

Breakfast is my hardest meal to plan for. I usually have cold cereal during the work week, so that doesn't require much effort. On weekend, usually I will make some scrambled eggs and toast, or sometimes French toast. This cookbook has quite a few breakfast and brunch recipes, and I am grateful that they will help me break out of my breakfast rut!

This morning I made PUMPKIN PANCAKES. This was a simple pancake recipe with canned pumpkin added. The batter was thin, so it cooked quickly on the hot skillet. Cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg were added to the batter to give it a great autumn flavor. Served with butter and hot syrup, these quick pancakes were a great treat!

These were very good. As I was making them, I was worried they would taste too much like pumpkin pie with the addition of the spices. Luckily, the pumpkin and spice flavors were light, leaving the pancakes with just a hint of pumpkin. These are great for a fall breakfast, and I will be making them again!


  1. My husband loves pumpkin pancakes, and it all started with this recipe! My batter tends to be thin too, so I'm glad you had the same result.

  2. What a great way to start the day! YUM :)

  3. Those look so yummy!! I bet Vicky would like them, she loves all varities of pancakes!
