Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

by Mama Chocolate on October 18, 2012

Perfect for the season, these pancakes are a favorite in our home right now. I first found this recipe through Pinterest on Annie’s Eats, but I’ve adapted it a bit, adding extra spices and using whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
 

Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. ground ginger
  • Dash of ground cloves
  • 1 cup milk (preferably whole milk)
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter + extra for frying

Instructions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and spices and stir with a fork to combine. Mix together the milk, pumpkin puree, egg and oil or butter in a liquid measuring cup. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together just until combine. (The batter may still have a few lumps – that is okay.)
  2. Preheat the oven to 200° F. Have an oven safe plate or serving dish ready.
  3. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add a little butter to grease and then a ⅓ cup scoop of batter to the pan.
  4. Let cook until bubbles begin to form on the top surface. Carefully flip with a spatula and cook the second side until golden brown, a couple minutes more.
  5. Transfer the cooked pancake to the oven safe dish, and place in the oven to keep warm.
  6. Repeat with the rest of the batter until it has all been cooked, regreasing the pan as needed.
  7. Serve with cinnamon sugar, maple syrup, and/or whipped cream.

 

Serve these up hot, with warm maple syrup for a very comforting and delicious breakfast…any time of the year.

Sounds yummy – but does the wheat flour still let the spice flavor come through as well as white?

Since I haven’t tried them with white flour, I can’t answer for sure, but I can definitely taste the spices with the whole wheat, so the nutritional difference is worth it for me! :-)

If you can buy Soft White Wheat berries ( I get mine from Azure ) then you’ll hardly know the difference.

I love pumpkin and this is so healthy. I would use ww pastry flour since this tastes less like ww flour…it tastes lighter and easier to hide!

Ooh those look delicious! We’ve made whole wheat pumpkin pancakes before, but I didn’t put in as many spices-I think they would be even yummier than the ones we made!

Can this be Gluten-Free and if so how?

Reply

Mama Chocolate November 13, 2012 at 9:21 pm

I haven’t experimented much gluten-free versions of my recipes, but I would probably try a mixture of almond and rice flours in place of the wheat.

Oh, wow, these look so good. I will have to make these very soon. Perfect time of the year for these : )
