Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup


I love pumpkin! I love carving pumpkins, decorating with pumpkins, and especially eating pumpkin! This was the yummiest breakfast on Halloween morning and I will definitely make it a few more times before Thanksgiving!  Lately I feel like I’ve got to fill myself with all the pumpkin I can before then!

Print this recipe
yields 6 pancakes

Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1 1/2 Tbs brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 Tbs vinegar

In a bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon and salt. Stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Cinnamon Syrup:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup water

Stir all ingredients together in a small saucepan. Over medium heat, stir occasionally until boiling. Let it boil for a few minutes while stirring until it thickens. Remove from heat and set aside until needed.

  3. Wow! I came across this recipe randomly on Pinterest and I knew I had to make them. The smell alone brought everyone into the kitchen. Husband ate 3 in a row and the kids inhaled theirs, too! Thanks for an awesome recipe!

  4. These were without a doubt the best pancakes I have ever eaten, and from my own kitchen nonetheless! Found this recipe on pinterest and just had to have some RIGHT now, even though it's 4:00 in the afternoon! haha...so glad I didn't forego the cinnamon syrup, that was probably the best part! The pancakes were light and fluffy just like they should be. Absolutely perfect, thank you for sharing!

  6. I made these and they were great but my syrup turned out a little too thick. I noticed I put 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon. Oops. Guess I got cinnamon happy. Would that cause the syrup to be too thick?

  7. Think we could add a little extra pumpkin and get rid of the oil? Or add some unsweetened applesauce and get rid of part of the sugar? Just trying to make it a little healthier.. Know I can use flax seed meal instead of egg

  9. These r so delicious. I have made them multiple times. They r best if you omit the baking soda. I have them with and without the baking soda and I like them without. I have not tried the cinnamon syrup although I am sure the syrup is good. They don't need the added calories. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  10. These are amazing! I didn't have all spice, and used white wine vinegar, so I added about 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla and used cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves for the pancakes. AMAZING! My 11 month old is having the left overs for breakfast right now (no syrup of course) and LOVES them! Great recipe!!

  12. Great recipe! My two teenage boys loved them and kept bragging on how good they were. I substitued pumpkin pie spice for allspice but otherwise, I followed the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing.

  13. I made these twice this weekend, once for family and once to share with friends. Absolutely Amazing! Rave reviews from all! I also made the syrup. YUM :) Thanks for sharing, so appreciated

  14. Just made these and they are SO good! The syrup made more than I needed, so next time I'll either halve the syrup recipe or double the pancake recipe-but other people might like more syrup on their pancakes. Otherwise it was yummy and great for fall!

  15. Made them this weekend and are by far the best!!! Syrup is to die for and it is not too sweet. I made extra and bottled the syrup to use instead of store bought syrup. Thanks for sharing!!!

  16. I have tried other pumpkin pancakes in the past, but I am so glad I tried these. It is now our go-to recipe. They are easier than other recipes we have tried, but I am glad I tried these. This is now our go-to recipe.
    I really wanted to comment to talk about the syrup. I tried it for the first time today because we were out of maple syrup. I tripled the pancake recipe to feed us, but only made on batch of the syrup. We still have a ton left because it made a lot. I put some in my coffee and it was soooo yummy! The syrup made a homemade cinnamon dolce latte! We prefer maple on pancakes, but I am going to keep this syrup around for my coffee from now on. Thank you.

  17. Made these this morning, and OH MY GOODNESS! My family LOVED them. The syrup was by far the cherry on the sundae. I made the recipe EXACTLY as shown (doubled), and it turned out absolutely PERFECT. Thank you so much! I love these!

  18. Made these today and everyone loved them. I doubled the pancake recipe and it was just the perfect amount to feed my family of five. We have some syrup left over. When you put the pancakes on the griddle, they are fairly thick, so I recommend spreading them out a bit with the back of a spoon on the griddle. Thanks for the recipe!

  19. I made both the pancakes (which were delish) and the syrup for breakfast today. We loved them both, although I'd leave out the flour - it totally clumped and and was a little unappetizing. I should have thought to dissolve it in some water first, but I forgot. It didn't hinder the taste at all - which was totally like the inside of a gooey cinnamon roll.

    Thanks for sharing these recipes!!!

  22. These look so delicious! And while the pancakes sound amazing, I have to say it was the syrup that really sealed the deal for me. I love a good syrup. I can't wait to try it! Thanks so much for sharing. Enjoy your day!

  25. Thank you for your fun fact. I put up about 100 lbs of pumpkin a year. It's the squash I like, but only in sweets. I was going to go to ASK and find out what it has in it. Thanks again for thr answer. Trish Butler

  33. My family loves these!! So fluffy and soft and not too sweet....absolutely delish! Thanks for sharing!!!! :) BTW, have you ever played with using part whole wheat flour?? just wondering. I haven't yet but thought I'd give it a whirl. Just to see.....although I hate to mess with a good thing. ;)

  34. My family LOVES these!!! They are so soft and fluffy and delicious! I love that they aren't too sweet. We love to use lemon curd with them. Yum! BTW, have you ever tried to sub any of the flour with whole wheat? Or a gluten free flour? Just wondering.....I've thought about it but hate to mess with perfection. ;) Thanks for sharing!!! So glad I found this on Pinterest!
