Pumpkin spice and everything nice! The leaves are changing colors and I've got a hankering for ginger, cinnamon, and a whole lotta pumpkin. While you can drink pumpkin pie spice in lattes, did you know you incorporate it into your entire breakfast? Pumpkin spice pancakes are one of my favorite pumpkin recipes to whip up in the fall and this recipe from Hello Fresh is incredibly easy to make in the morning.
Not a fan of pumpkin puree? We've rounded up some of our favorite Autumn-inspired pancakes for your Fall brunch.
How to Make Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
The basics of making pancakes involve mixing the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately, then mixing the two to form a cohesive pancake batter. This recipe follows the same structure, making breakfast only a few minutes away.
To start, whisk together your all-purpose flour, baking powder, light brown sugar, salt, and pumpkin spice in a large bowl. You can always substitute ground ginger, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, and ground cinnamon in place of the pumpkin spice. In a separate bowl combine the milk, pure pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, and eggs.
Combine the two, making sure no pieces of flour remain.
Preheat your griddle or nonstick skillet over medium heat and add a touch of vegetable oil, cooking spray, or butter. Ladle the pancake batter onto the skillet and cook until bubbles start to form. Using a spatula, flip the pancake cook until golden. Remove to a plate or baking sheet and repeat. Top with maple syrup, pecans, or even whipped cream!
