Print Recipe


  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup canned pumpkin not pumpkin pie mix
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1.5 - 2 Cups buttermilk


  • In a large bowl, mix flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice.  Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix pumpkin, eggs, vanilla and 1.5 cups of the buttermilk.  Add to dry ingredients and whisk together.  Add remaining ½ cup buttermilk in small amounts until you reach the consistency you like.  Batter should be quite thick, but slightly runny.  If you like thinner pancakes, add more buttermilk until you reach the consistency you prefer. 
  • Preheat a griddle on med-high heat and lightly coat with butter.
  • Spoon batter onto griddle, approximately ¼ cup per pancake, unless you want larger pancakes.
  • Cook until you see bubbles forming on the top, then gently flip and cook 1-2 minutes longer.
  • Serve topped with butter, maple syrup, and chopped pecans, if desired.


Either a stove top or electric griddle can be used for this recipe. When using a stove top griddle be sure the pan is centred over the burner and watch the temperature carefully. If you find the pancakes getting too brown, turn down the heat and remove the griddle from the stove for a minute before continuing to avoid burning the pancakes.
