Fall is here people, Fall is here! I made these Pumpkin Pancakes for Sunday Brunch and oh boy they were delicious. Full of pumpkin puree and cinnamon, these Pumpkin flavored Pancakes whip up quick and the whole family loves them.
We are big brunch lovers around here– but we haven’t always been! Our love of brunch started with my husband. His family made breakfast every Sunday growing up and we’ve adopted the tradition in our house now, too. My father in law used to make pancakes every Sunday for my husband Greg and oh boy I can’t wait to make little Benny pancakes on Sundays as soon as we’re able to 🙂
To start, mix your dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk well, and then add in the wet ingredients, continuing to mix until fully combined. The batter by nature may be a tad lumpy- that is okay.
Ingredients for Pumpkin Pancakes:
- Baking Powder
- Brown Sugar
- White Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
- Pumpkin Puree
Once the batter is prepared, preheat either a griddle or a pan to medium heat. For this, I used a stovetop griddle. Spray your pan with a little bit of nonstick spray, and scoop 1/2 cup of batter for each pancake. Allow to bubble (about 2-3 minutes on each side) and then flip. I like to stack them on a plate both lined and covered with foil so they stay warm.
More about these Pumpkin Pancakes
- They keep for about 2 days in the refrigerator. Heat them by wrapping them in a paper towel and microwaving for 20 seconds, or until warm throughout.
- Freeze them! Wait until they are fully cooled, and freeze them on a cookie sheet in the freezer (the cookie sheet helps them stay flat and also not stick together). Once frozen, transfer them to a ziplock bag and store for up to 3 months. Reheat by wrapping in a paper towel and microwaving for 30 seconds.
- Use the batter for waffles! Follow the instructions on your waffle iron for pumpkin waffles using this batter recipe.
- Serving idea for dessert: Roll them up with vanilla ice cream and freeze them for a delicious dessert treat 🙂
- We like ours served with butter and maple syrup but they are delicious with Pumpkin Spice Pancake Syrup too 🙂

Add wet ingredients to dry mixture (allow melted butter to cool so it does not scramble eggs). Mix well until fully combined. Batter may be lumpy and that is okay.
Preheat griddle to medium heat.
Spray griddle with nonstick spray and use 1/2 cup measurement for each pancake. Cook until bubbly and flip, allowing each side to cook for about 2-3 minutes.
Stack pancakes on foil lined plate, covering top of pancakes with foil to keep warm. Serve and enjoy!
