Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes

Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes are especially delightfully during the Fall!

Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes | #pumpkin

You’re probably thinking that “perfect” pancakes is a pretty bold claim huh?  I have a good feeling that you are going to agree after trying this recipe.  Reece declared these pancakes the best he has ever had – pretty amazing for a 5 year old to say – he’s had a lot of pancakes in his time!


1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c wheat flour
3/4 c brown sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 c canned pumpkin (pure pumpkin)
1 c milk
1/4 c applesauce (or vegetable oil)
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla


Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.  I know there is a lot of ingredients but it is SO worth it!  Once all those spices get in the bowl just take a sniff and smile.  Smells like pumpkin pie!  (You can use more or less wheat flour depending on your preference.)

Add remaining ingredients and mix until just blended.  Do not over mix – just until blended.  I use applesauce but you can sub in vegetable oil if you prefer.

Pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto a lightly butter skillet.  Cook over medium heat until pancakes are lightly browned on the bottom.  Turn and cook until done.

These Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes are delicious with a sprinkle of powdered sugar…

Served with maple syrup and butter…

Or enjoyed plain (these pancakes make a “perfect” snack!)…

  37. Now I knew about the pumpkin, but I had not heard about the wheat flour and apple sauce. That’s a different twist.

  38. I followed you here from Making Lemonade. I made this recipe on Saturday and they are perfect! (Even if I didn’t have any cloves to add because I ran out the last time I made zuc bread.) These are definitely yummy and I will make more as soon as I can get more pumpkin.

    Just made these tonight with applesauce and only whole wheat flour and no joke, these are the best pancakes I have ever had!! My boyfriend had his first two with powdered sugar and syrup while I had mine plain, but we both agreed they are best without anything on them! We did try making a couple as banana pancakes and they were AMAZING! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
