  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • pinch ground cloves
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together buttermilk, pumpkin puree, egg, and vanilla extract. Stir in brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves until combined. Stir in flour until no lumps remain.
