Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes that are easy to make and taste just like pumpkin pie!
Can I add chocolate chips to my pumpkin pancakes?
Yes! Blueberries or chocolate chips can be folded into the pancake batter, or you can add them in after you scoop the batter onto a griddle to form designs or patterns. Use up to 1/2 cup of either blueberries or semi-sweet chocolate chips in this recipe.
How do I know when to flip my pancakes?
Pancakes should be cooked on a flat surface over medium high heat. When bubbles start to form on the top and the edges start to lose their shine, you’ll know it is time to flip. Your pancake should be golden brown on each side.
Can I use whole wheat flour in this recipe?
Yes! Whole wheat flour can be used interchangeably in this recipe. Please keep in mind that the use of whole wheat will make for a more dense pancake. You can use partial whole wheat to retain a bit of fluffiness.
What syrup should I use on my pumpkin pancakes?
Maple syrup is a classic topping option for pancakes and works great on pumpkin pancakes. One of our personal favorites here at The Stay At Home Chef is our famous Liquid Cinnamon Roll Syrup. It tastes just like a cinnamon roll in liquid form! Caramel buttermilk syrup is also an excellent choice.
