Hi Friends! I hope you are enjoying your week as we enjoy the new season. I just love all the things that autumn brings and honestly, I think it is my new favorite season. It certainly has some of the best flavors and I also love that it brings with it, a wonderful aroma in the kitchen.

So now that it’s officially fall, I am ready for some fall breakfast. Part of the fun of enjoying each season is cooking and baking with the flavors available.

Why This Recipe?

Today I made some really easy pumpkin pancakes.  Pumpkin is one of my favorite fall flavors and this is one of my favorite pumpkin recipes.

I use a pancake mix and canned pumpkin to save some time.  You would never know the difference as they make the fluffiiest pancakes and they taste like they were made from scratch.

It is also a great way to use leftover canned pumpkin and is a family favorite.

I used a whole wheat flour baking mix as a base, but you can use a regular base as well. These mixes really help save time and they taste really delicious too!

Equipment Needed:

  • medium or large bowl (one with a spout is great for pouring the pancake batter)
  • Spatula
  • nonstick skillet or nonstick griddle
