Two Peas and Their Pod: Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup

Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup

If you are a pumpkin lover and enjoy a special breakfast treat, these are the pancakes for you! Pumpkin is everywhere this time of year so why not add it into breakfast too?

I created a pumpkin/buttermilk pancake with some cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and vanilla. All the great fall flavors in one! I used half whole wheat flour so they were nice and hearty but still really fluffy.

Now let me tell you about the syrup. You might need to sit down for this one. The syrup is absolutely amazing. I think I could drink the stuff by the gallon! It was so easy to make too. A little sugar, cinnamon, flour, vanilla, water...boil it, whisk it, and ta have the best homemade syrup ever. Pour it over pumpkin pancakes and indulge.

The cinnamon syrup goes perfectly with the pancakes. I think they are a match made in heaven. So wake up early and enjoy a delicious fall breakfast. Your tummy will thank you!

Pumpkin Pancakes

(Print Recipe)

Makes 13-15 pancakes


1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
6 tablespoons (packed) brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of ground cloves
Dash of nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups buttermilk
3/4 cup canned solid pack pumpkin
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, melted

Mix first 9 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Whisk buttermilk, pumpkin, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter in medium bowl until well blended. Add to dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.

Spray a skillet or griddle with cooking spray. Working in batches, drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into skillet or griddle. Cook pancakes until bubbles form on top and bottoms are golden brown, about 2 1/2 minutes. Turn pancakes over. Cook until bottoms are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Serve pancakes hot with cinnamon syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.

Cinnamon Syrup

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup water

Stir together dry ingredients in a small saucepan. Then add water and vanilla. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring often. Continue boiling and stir until mixture thickens to syrup consistency. About 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand a few minutes before serving. Serve with warm pancakes!

Oh dear heavens. I want to go pick everyone up from school, head home, and make these NOW. I don't want to wait until the weekend. I don't want to wait until tomorrow! Maybe we'll have breakfast for dinner tonight. I've heard pumpkin pancakes mentioned out there in the blogsphere, but didn't know of a recipe, and goodness knows that I don't think up recipes on my own! -- so thank you, thank you for this one! Can't wait to make them!
