Christina's Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

  • Yield: 10 servings

Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes. One day, I decided to experiment a little and see if I could get the taste of pumpkin pie into a pancake. To remind people of pumpkin pie, I serve them cold with whipped topping to dip them in.


2cups all-purpose flour
3/4cup sugar
1tablespoon baking powder
1/2teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
2teaspoons ground cinnamon
1teaspoon ground ginger
1/2teaspoon ground cloves
Whipped topping, optional


  1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl until well beaten. Add the pumpkin, milk, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves; whisk until well blended. Pour pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture; mix well. Batter will be thick.
  3. Preheat an electric griddle to 375 degrees F. or place a large skillet over medium heat. Coat with nonstick cooking spray. Using a 1/4-cup measure, pour batter on griddle or skillet. Using the back of a spoon, spread mixture to create 4-inch circles. Cook until golden, about 21/2 minutes on each side. Turn pancakes more than once, if necessary. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. Serve warm or cool with whipped topping, if desired.
