I love all the seasons. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall, but I have to say that I absolutely adore Fall! The beautiful changing colors of the leaves on the trees and watching them swirl and twirl to the ground. Pumpkin lattes, trips to the pumpkin patch with our grandchildren, carving pumpkins, the scent of cinnamon, nutmeg and other aromatic spices! Yes!! I. Love. Fall.
Tweaking my buttermilk pancake recipe, I made these pumpkin buttermilk pancakes for breakfast this morning. I think pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast choices (I have a few favorites).
I hope you try these fluffy and light pancakes. They have maple syrup in the batter, and I recommend pouring some on top too! Maple syrup and pumpkin go together like peanut butter and jelly. Yummm!!
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (190 grams)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar (28 grams)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cup buttermilk (240 grams)
- 1 cup pumpkin puree (120 grams)
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup (40 grams)
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (43 grams)
Whisk, first, six (dry) ingredients together in a large bowl.
Whisk together buttermilk, egg, maple syrup, vanilla and melted butter in measuring cup or bowl.
Add wet ingredients along with the pumpkin puree to the dry ingredients. Mix until incorporated. Don’t overmix!
Heat skillet or nonstick pan over medium/high heat. Add butter or oil and allow to heat. Lower heat to medium. Add 1/4 cup of the batter to the pan and allow the pancakes to cook until golden in color (the pancakes will bubble as they cook). Flip pancakes and allow to cook for another minute. Remove from pan and place on a platter. Place in a warm oven (170° F) to keep warm until all the pancakes are cooked.
Serve while warm with butter, maple syrup, and toasted pepitas (or your topping of choice). Enjoy!!
I hope you make these delicious pancakes, and if you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi. I would love to hear from you and see your photos!
