Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes

We love pancakes at our house. So in honor of Halloween I decided to try pumpkin pancakes. I searched the web for a great recipe and found one at Taste of Home that was lower in fat. I merged that with my favorite whole wheat pancake recipe and they were a big hit. Next time I think I’ll try adding diced apple to the recipe.

Pumpkin Pancakes and an Award

Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 egg whites, beaten to soft peaks


In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the milk, pumpkin, egg yolks and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in egg whites. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle coated with cooking spray; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until second side is golden brown.


I’d like to thank Lisa at Magic Sprinkles, who gave me the “I’m a Chocoholic Award”. I definitely am a chocoholic! Lisa is a fellow Daring Baker and always has great recipes, as well as stories about her small town.I’d like to pass this on to Veronica at Supermarket Serenade, who right now has a yummy post about using Halloween candy in baking.

    Your pumpkin pancakes are so cute! I bet that they would go over big here at my house.

    Congrats on your adorable new award! Are there really people out there who don’t like chocolate? I’m definitely one who DOES!

    Pumpkin pancakes sound great! A while back I made Bobby Flay’s pumpkin french toast, which was good, but the pumpkin batter didn’t adhere that well to the bread, too think.
