I absolutely love breakfast foods and pancakes are one of my favorites. These pancakes are kicked up a notch with pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and a bourbon maple syrup. My daughter loves these pancakes too - sans syrup, of course.
Admittedly, pancakes are a regular breakfast food around here. It is one of my go-to breakfasts that I know my daughter will eat. I usually pair them with some yogurt and fruit, and we have a great start to our day. I have started using White Whole Wheat Flour in a lot of my baking, and that is what I used today. The Whole Wheat Flour really soaks up the liquid, so you might need a bit more milk if your mixture looks too dry. If you substitute regular White Flour, the measurements for liquid will change, and I have not tested those measurements yet for this specific recipe.
To make my mornings easier, I need to make another batch just for the freezer, so I can have them ready on busy days. Skillet Cinnamon Apples and Salted Caramel Sauce or Semi-Homemade Pumpkin Butter would also be good choices for toppings if you didn't want the bourbon syrup. You can also top the pancakes with toasted pecans or walnuts - both would be delicious!

Yield 18 pancakes
Pumpkin Pancake Ingredients:
- 1 & 3/4 cups White Whole Wheat Flour
- 3 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
- 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 2 teaspoons Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1 & 1/2 cups Milk
- 2 large Eggs
- 1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree, not pumpkin pie filling
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 2 tablespoons Butter, melted
Pumpkin Pancake Directions:
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Flour, Sugar, Baking Powder, Spice, and Salt, and set aside
2. Heat griddle or skillet to medium-high and either use butter or nonstick cooking spray.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together the Milk, Eggs, Pumpkin, and Vanilla Extract. Pour into the dry ingredients and fold to combine. Add in the melted Butter and combine. The Whole Wheat Flour really soaks up the liquid, so you might need a bit more milk if your mixture looks too dry. This recipe is using White Whole Wheat Flour. If you substitute regular White Flour, the measurements for liquid will change.
4. Turn the heat to medium, and cook your pancakes, about 1/4 cup per pancake. I prefer to use a disher or ice cream scoop, so all my pancakes are uniform in size.
Bourbon Maple Syrup Ingredients:
- 1 cup Maple Syrup
- 2 tablespoons Bourbon Whiskey, more or less depending on your preference
Bourbon Maple Syrup Directions:
1. In a small saucepan, warm the Syrup and Bourbon together until it is thin and viscous. Pour over warm pancakes and serve with a pat of butter. Enjoy!
Until next time,
