  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin I used canned pumpkin
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 200°F, place a baking sheet in the middle rack.
  • Add flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and sugar in a large mixing bowl, whisk all ingredients together to combine. Adjust pumpkin pie spice to your taste, more spice will make spicier pancakes.
  • In another bowl or a large measuring cup, add pumpkin, egg, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla extract, beat to combine thoroughly.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the liquid mixture in. Mix with a whisk or spatula until combined, but not completely smooth. The batter should be somewhat thick but pourable.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet to between medium-low and medium heat, pour about 1/3 cup of batter on the skillet and let it cook.
  • When the top is starting to bubble and the bottom is browned (a few minutes), flip the pancake over and cook the other side until brown (couple more minutes).
  • Transfer the cooked pancake to the baking sheet in the oven to keep warm while you continue cooking.
  • When all the pancakes are done, remove baking sheet from the oven, serve warm with a slab of butter and plenty of maple syrup.


Cook time is estimated. If you can get a few pancakes cooking at the same time, it will be faster.
