Fluffy Pumpkin Pancake Tips
Is canned pumpkin the same as pumpkin puree?
Canned pumpkin is not exactly the same as pumpkin puree. Canned pumpkin is typically made of a blend of pumpkin and other winter squashes, while pumpkin puree is 100% pumpkin. Canned pumpkin and pumpkin puree can be used interchangeably and are preferred in baking as opposed to fresh pumpkin. Not only is canned pumpkin convenient and already prepared for use, but its overall flavor and texture is more balanced in the final product. Read more about our canned versus fresh pumpkin test.
