Pumpkin Pie Pancakes (with Caramel Sauce)

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes
I had a bunch of pumpkin puree leftover that needed to be used and I figured that it was the perfect opportunity to make one of my favourite pumpkin dishes, pumpkin pie pancakes, and to update the photos for the recipe! Pumpkin pie pancakes are one of my favourites because they are so nice and light, fluffy, moist and tender and not only do they taste just like pumpkin pie but they are so quick and easy to make! I mean really, it is as simple as mixing the dry ingredients, mixing the wet ingredients, mixing them together and the cooking the pancakes! In the past I would normally have served these pumpkin pie pancakes smothered in maple syrup but more recently I have been liking the pumpkin and caramel flavour combo and since homemade caramel sauce is so easy to make that is the way that I went this time. One of the nice things about caramel sauce is that when it is cool it is nice and thick but if you warm it up a bit it becomes much more fluid, like a syrup, which is perfect for pancakes!

Oh, my! Pumpkin pie pancakes smothered in caramel sauce; it's just like having dessert for breakfast!

If you want to be a bit more decadent you could use a vanilla bourbon caramel sauce!

Just look at all of that sweet, sweet caramel sauce dripping down the sides!

Elly said...

Delicious, Kevin! I made some pumpkin waffles last year but never pancakes. I am bookmarking this one. I love pumpkin!

Manggy said...

Of course they always have to be drowned in maple syrup! The only way to go. Looks fantastic, save me a seat at breakfast :)
Love the thematic setting too! ;)

Sandie said...

These pancakes sound like something I could sink my fork into! They look delicious (and it's hard to make pancakes *look* delicious when shooting them)!

Dani Spies said...

Wow... these look amazing! I have some leftover sweet potatoes in my fridge, I wonder if I mash them up if they would work...hmmm, I think I'll have to give it a try!

Peter M said...

Great take on pancakes and the spices and pecans are a nice touch.

Hey Kevin — we must be on the same wavelength. I recently did a post on pumpkin pancakes as well, but my version was gluten-free. I've never been here before and I love your blog! We're on the same wavelength with the chard as well. I throw raisins in everything including sauteed greens (cabbage too). I'll be back to visit again soon. Great photos, too.
Take care and happy eating!

I just made these too, I have yet to post them though. Weren't they good? The buttermilk made them come together so nicely.

I'm booking my table for next sunday morning!

Cathy - wheresmydamnanswer said...

Welcome to Fall!! These look wonderful!!!

Mr. Shiny and New said...

Reminds me of what I do when I make pumpkin pie: there is too much pie filling in one recipe for the pie shells I use (still haven't tried making shells from scratch) so I take the leftover filling, soak some bread in it, and make pumpkin-pie-French-toast.

Maria said...

Pumpkin pancakes are my favorite new thing this fall! So delicious!

Lo said...

I love a good batch of pumpkin pancakes, and these look delicious. Great use for those little bits of canned pumpkin that we all end up with at one point or another too!

Elra said...

Just got up, and saw your pancakes look absolutely mouth watering. Imagine having this right now, I am sure my whole house will smell so good with all of those fragrant spices. Delicious!

Alexa said...

Mike of Mike's Table said...

That is so the right way to start the day. They sound delicious

Jeanne said...

Now that is inspired - I saw the pic on Tastespotting and HAD to come over and comment. Mashed pumpkin or butternut is just the best thing to have in the freezer as it can go into so many things. Definitely want to bookmark and try this :)

Kathleen said...

We made these! Delicious! We used whole wheat as instruacted but used barley flour instead of the white flour. The only other change was that we used honey instead of brown sugar. Otherwise we follwed the recipe. Turned out great! We made a double batch and ended up with 16 generous sized pancakes.

matt said...

I attempted something similar, except I used the "Just Add Water" mix. LOL! Sounds like your's worked out a little better!

meeso said...

Wow, I can smell these pancakes cooking! They must taste great!

kd said...

I would like to make these over the wknd - but question.
The ingredient list says milk, the directions say buttermilk. Which do I use?

Kevin said...

kd: I used milk but I am sure that buttermilk would be great as well.
