  • Bowls
  • Whisk
  • Spatula
  • Cooking spray, oil, or butter
  • Skillet or pancake griddle


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 120g
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder 6g
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 3g
  • 1/2 tsp. salt 2g
  • 1/4 tsp.ground nutmeg 1g optional
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger 1g optional
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup of milk 177ml add additional milk as necessary to thin out the batter.
  • 2 tbsp butter melted (26g)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 2ml
  • 1/4 cup sugar 50g
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree canned or homemade (approx. 125g)


  • Begin by whisking together the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, and ginger. You may also use a sifter if you like.
  • In a separate large bowl whisk together the egg and milk. Then melt the butter and add that and the vanilla extract and whisk. Then add the sugar and storebought or homemade pumpkin puree and whisk until well combined.
  • Now dump the dry ingredient mixture into the large bowl with the batter and whisk until smooth. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed.
    You may add additional milk to get a runnier consistency, for a slightly thinner pancake.
  • Heat a skillet on medium heat or an electric griddle to 350 F/176 C. Spray it with cooking spray, use a bit of butter, or oil. Pour about a 1/3 cup worth of batter in the middle of the skillet.
    Cook it for about a minute or so until the edges get a bit dull and a few bubbles show up on the top. Flip it over with a spatula and cook the other side for 30 seconds or so until nice and golden brown. Cooking times will vary depending on the pan, etc.
  • Place the pancake on a plate, and finish with the rest of them.
    Serve up those pumpkin pancakes with your favorite toppings. I love adding butter, maple syrup, and powdered sugar. Enjoy!



Note: The cooking time is for all the pancakes. It will take only a few minutes to cook one of the pancakes.
Note: The nutritional facts are for a stack of about 2 medium pancakes, and does not include toppings, like maple syrup, powdered sugar, etc.
