Pumpkin Pancakes

I got this recipe from my sister-in-law Sarah who posted it on our sister-in-law blog, and I am not sure where it originates from but regardless, it is DELICIOUS!  I love pumpkin and the season is coming up for it, so you will definitely have to try out these amazing pumpkin pancakes!


3 cups flour
3/4 tsp. salt 
2 tsp. baking soda 
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4. tsp. ginger 
2 T brown sugar
2 cups pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin
2 1/2 cup sour milk* (more or less depending on moistness of pumpkin)
3 eggs

1. Mix dry ingredients in large bowl, making a hole in the center.
2. Add pumpkin puree, sour milk, eggs to center of bowl, and mix gently. Do not overmix. If batter is a bit stiff, add a little water until it can easily be spooned onto a hot lightly greased griddle.
3. Let pancakes bake until bubbles pop in the top, then flip—just one time. Do not press down—you want these to be light and airy!
4. Serve with your choice of whipped cream, syrup, and strawberries…or you could go the sweet route and top them with a vanilla glaze.

*Sour milk…this can be in any form: buttermilk, raw milk that has soured (not pasteurized milk), 1 tablespoon plain yogurt + water to make 1 cup, 1 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar + milk to make 1 cup, 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice + milk to 1 cup. Let stand to clabber for 5 minutes before using.

    These look YUM. Question for you. We are a dairy free home (two out of five are allergic). Do you think lemon juice with rice milk would work?

    Thanks for sharing.

    How many pancakes does this make? They sound amazing!!

    @ DJ Rose, The lemon is just to sour the cow's milk. It won't sour rice milk. You can just add rice milk as is or any other kind of milk. I like to cook with coconut milk (unflavored) though, it has a thicker consistency.

    I made these last night, they were delish! Four out of the five people in my household had them and asked for seconds…the recipe made a big batch so I froze the rest…yummy pancakes whenever I want!

  32. 32

    Made these for dinner last night. My two kids LOVED them. After reading other comments, I did half all the ingredients. Never again, as everyone at the table was wanting more. Thanks for a great family recipe.

    A friend of mine made pumpkin pancakes with apple cider syrup. It was delicious! I’ll have to try these

    I don’t know what sort of culinary wizardry you’re playing with, but I just made this recipe as a waffle (as I tend to do) and they were the fluffiest waffles to ever come out of my kitchen! Amazingly yum!

    Oh my gosh! These were amazing!! What a wonderful breakfast treat. So light and yummy. Thanks for posting. Now to try them as waffles.
