If you are excited about Fall, you are not alone! The feeling of Fall has to be one of my favorite feelings. I absolutely love when pumpkin spice comes back. While I may not like it in my lattes, I do love it in my foods. These easy pumpkin spice pancakes are the best way to ring in the new season!
This recipe is only 5 ingredients; the pancake mix, some buttermilk, water, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice seasoning (or 1/2 Tsp each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves). That is a mini cheat for a homemade pumpkin spice seasoning. This recipe can be modified to be gluten free if you use a GF pancake mix.
In a bowl, add your pancake mix. I used 2 cups of the dry mix to make 12-16 pancakes. Add 1/2 cup heavy cream. Next, add 3/4 cup pumpkin puree. Finally add 3/4 tbsp of pumpkin spice seasoning or 1/2 tsp each of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Since I did not have pumpkin spice seasoning, I used the individual ones. Follow the instructions on the box for the water amount. Mine called for 1 1/3 cup of water, so I just backed out my 1/2 cup of heavy cream. I put in about 3/4 cup of water into the mix. You want your mix to be thick but just pourable. If you need to add more water, do it 1 tbsp at a time.
In a skillet on low to medium heat add butter and pour in about 1/4 cup of the batter. This made me about 12 pancakes! Cook until you see the bubbles and flip for a beautifully brown pancake! Stack high and top with whipped cream, cinnamon, and syrup!
