    I saw these pancakes in a 2008 issue of my favorite magazine, Life Beautiful.

    And I have made them twice in the last three days.

    They are delicious!



    Pumpkin Spice Pancakes!

    These pancakes are easy and quick, but so rich and decadent.  Especially with an extra sprinkling of cinnamon over the top… I felt like I was eating at a fancy restaurant!

    Well, except for the baby screaming and the basket of folded clothes at the end of the dining room table.

    Just sayin.

    Can I set a mood or what?  Let’s try again.

    I can just see these sweet and satisfying pancakes on a cold, snowy Christmas morning with a cup of pumpkin spice latte.

    Sound better?

    Pumpkin Pancakes


        • 1 c flour
        • 1/2 c cornmeal
        • 1/4 c sugar
        • 2 tbsp. baking powder
        • 1/2 tsp. salt
        • 1/2 tsp. allspice (or pumpkin spice)
        • 1 beaten egg
        • 1 c milk (or buttermilk)
        • 1 tsp. vanilla
        • 1/2 c canned pumpkin
        • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (optional, sprinkled on top)


        1. In a large bowl combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. In a separate bowl, mix together egg, milk, vanilla, and pumpkin. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and blend until just incorporated. (lumps are ok)
        2. Cook pancakes as you normally would.
        3. Note: This is a dense batter, and you might not see bubbles form as quickly as they normally would. Look for the top to no longer be shiny and for bubbles around the edges as a sign to turn over.

        Extra options: Top with toasted pecans, maple glaze sugar, or a powder sugar/cinnamon blend.

        Pumpkin Pancakes!

        Seriously.  Try them.

        It’s like having dessert for breakfast!

        I don’t make pancakes very often, but pumpkin pancakes are always so fluffy and full of wonderful flavors. These look marvelous!

        I like pumpkin pancakes topped with apple butter and whipped cream

        Yum! We are making pancakes right now (& by “we” I mean, my husband, since I’m blog reading & sitting in the couch…) Looks like I’ll have to encourage a slight change of plans to see if we can get these pancakes in our bellies instead!

        Don't Pass on Dessert!
