The best Pumpkin Pancake Recipe: 

These are the best pumpkin pancakes from scratch. These are some of the most decadent pancakes I have ever had. They are almost more like dessert than breakfast. 

But they are not too sweet.  They are just plain delicious.

These pancakes are light and fluffy and an easy breakfast idea especially during the fall months. You are going to love these pumpkin spice pancakes. This recipe is super easy to make because I simply added a few pumpkin ingredients to our regular homemade pancake mix.

Pumpkin Pancakes with pancake mix:

I used to buy expensive prepackaged pancake mixes until I decided to make my own.  Then I learned that making your own is very easy and this mix makes perfect pancakes (and waffles) every time.

For these reasons, it is the ONLY mix I ever use now! I make up a large batch so I know I can have pancakes and waffles anytime.

Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes Tips:

Use these tips to make the perfect pumpkin pancakes for your family!

  • Make your pancake mix the night before. Just store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to use in the morning.
  • These pancakes can be made in different sizes. Sometimes I like making big ones and other times I like making small ones. Whichever size you make, your family will love them.
  • Make sure to use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling. The pumpkin pie filling doesn’t work well with this recipe.
  • You can also add in some mini or regular chocolate chips to the pumpkin pancake batter.

Perfect Pumpkin Spice Pancakes:

I promise that this recipe is not overly complicated.  You don’t have to worry about adding in the dry ingredients at the perfect time or getting the right amount of baking soda for perfect pancakes like some other recipes out there.

You just need common ingredients like milk, pumpkin and your favorite Fall seasonings, including some vanilla extract to make these easy pumpkin pancakes. For these reasons, this recipe is simple but the results are undeniably delicious!

I hope you’ll love these pumpkin pancakes as much as much as my entire family does.

My entire family devours these pancakes when I prepare them at my house.  My youngest said these were the best pancakes I’ve ever made.

I love hearing that from my kids. I hope you try these pancakes soon and leave us a comment to let me know what you think about them!

What do you serve with this delicious breakfast recipe?

This recipe is delicious and very filling.  You can easily serve this by itself topped with your favorite syrup, butter or sprinkled with powder sugar.   Yummy!

If you are wanting some protein in your breakfast, I like to serve this with scrambled eggs or a serving of sausage or bacon.  The addition of these items help make the breakfast a more well rounded meal for my family.

Also, I love dipping the sausage or bacon in the left over syrup on my plate.  I love the sweetness that the syrup adds to them.

Can you freeze Pumpkin Pancakes?

Did you know that you can freeze pancakes and reheat them easily for quick breakfast ideas? Yes you can!

Anytime I make pancakes, I prepare a double batch so I can freeze the leftovers and have a quick and easy breakfast for my family for a busy weekdays.

The kids are always excited when I serve them these delicious pancakes!
