Pumpkin Pancakes

Saturday was the first day of Fall and also one of the first Saturdays that Stephen and I had together without morning plans in MONTHS.  We decided earlier in the week that Saturday would be Pancake Day.  We planned on staying in our pjs until after the Gator game at 12:20pm.  Knowing we had such an awesome Saturday morning planned really helped the last part of last week move by a little faster.

For the pancakes we used this recipe from  There were 1400 positive reviews and over 70 people uploaded pictures of their pancakes so they seemed they'd be a safe bet for such a special morning.

The ingredients from the recipe are as follows, my revisions are in blue.

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (canola oil)
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (whole wheat flour)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice (didn't have any allspice, so we used 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp ground clove)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (didn't have any)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • (added 1 tablespoon of sugar)

  • You know us, we like to change things up.  We also had some bacon and Jamaican coffee with our Pumpkin Pancakes.  The perfect Saturday morning.  The pancakes were dense, so we had to adjust the amount on the pan after the first three went on.  The whole wheat flour gave them a different texture than I assume the all-purpose flour would, but we like it better.  The recipe made about 10 pancakes so we put the leftover 4 in plastic bags in the fridge.  We had cheesy eggs and a pancake on Sunday morning, too.  Just a minute in the microwave and the day-old pancakes were perfect. 

  • PS - don't laugh at our bacon.  We had our panini press out from the night before when we made Cuban Sandwiches and we used it the next morning for the bacon.  It was perfect, but it made the bacon a little flat.  Don't worry, none of the flavor was lost.
