How to make it

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin with the sugar, spices, and salt.
  • Add the milk, melted butter, and egg, and beat until well blended.
  • Combine the flour and baking powder, and add to wet ingredients.
  • Stir until just mixed.
  • Technique is everything in making pancakes.
  • Make sure that the griddle or frying pan is hot enough that a drop of water skitters across the surface - about 375F degrees - or you won't get a wonderful crispy crust and fluffy interior.
  • If you have one, use an electric skillet as you can then set the temperature for 375F.
  • Grease the cooking surface lightly with butter or vegetable oil just before cooking the pancakes.
  • Spoon or pour about 3 tablespoons of batter onto the griddle and spread it out with the back of a spoon to reach 3-4 inches in diameter.
  • Cook until bubbles appear and break on the top, about 3 minutes.
  • Flip and then cook for about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Keep pancakes warm in a 250F degree oven covered with a clean dish towel until they are ready to be served.

    Debbie's husband here, Mr Qwerty: I like your variations and will try them too. I recently tried Debbie's same recipe but substituted fresh bananas for the pumpkin and they were similarly delicious. I heartedly recommend you try this deviation.

    very good! I used 1/3 cup brown rice syrup and a little less milk and used coconut oil instead of butter. my taste tester said they were like ginger snap cookies dunked in milk!

    I love the idea of pancake day! Pumpkin is a favorite, I'm sure we will love these on our next backwards day.

    Oh I LIKE that idea of trying a new pancake every Sunday - what a perfect way to find new tastes! This pumpkin recipe really appeals to me - will have to try it soon (maybe this Sunday??).
