Contest-Winning Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe

Contest-Winning Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe

With four small children, I am always looking for simple, quick and tasty recipes that they'll enjoy. They love pancakes, and these are great with breakfast sausage. I usually double or triple the recipe, depending on how hungry they are.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:3 servings


  • 1 cup complete buttermilk pancake mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2/3 cup cold water
  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup maple syrup, warmed
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the pancake mix, cinnamon and ginger. In a small bowl, whisk water and pumpkin until blended; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • 2. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle coated with cooking spray. Flatten with back of spoon. When underside is browned, turn pancakes and cook until second side is browned. Top with syrup and pecans. Yield: 6 pancakes.
