For these scrumptious pumpkin pancakes, you’ll need the following ingredients:

Dry Ingredients:

  1. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  8. 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  9. 1/4 teaspoon cardamon

Wet Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  2. 1 cup buttermilk
  3. 2 large eggs
  4. 2 tablespoons melted butter
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Prepare the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves. Mix well until all the dry ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  2. Prepare the Wet Ingredients:
    • In another bowl, whisk together the canned pumpkin puree, buttermilk, large eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  4. Cooking the Pancakes:
    • Preheat a griddle or a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly grease it with butter or cooking spray.
    • Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup, pour the pancake batter onto the griddle to form pancakes. Leave enough space between them to allow for spreading.
    • Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes, which should take about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Flip and Cook:
    • Carefully flip the pancakes using a spatula and cook the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Transfer the cooked pumpkin pancakes to a serving plate. You can keep them warm in a 200°F (93°C) oven while you cook the remaining pancakes.
    • Serve with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, whipped cream, chopped nuts, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
  7. Optional: Get Creative
    • You can add chocolate chips, chopped pecans, or if you want to do it my way drizzle a little honey on top!
