Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe

By Dennis Weaver

These pumpkin pancakes taste just like a slice of pumpkin pie in a pancake. The recipe calls to use a pancake mix or recipe for the base and adding the pumpkin pie ingredients to it. We used our Buttermilk Pancake mix, so we had pumpkin buttermilk pancakes. We’re sure that these would be great with our Country Wheat Pancakes also.

The Pumpkin Pie Pancake Mix

If you’re short on ingredients or time in the mornings, you can also use our delicious pumpkin pie pancake mix instead. They’ll be just as tasty but just a little bit easier and more convenient.

Our pumpkin pie pancakes are light and fluffy and perfectly capture the taste of the fall. They’re just a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy, and have just enough flavor to make both kids and adults smile.
