Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes

Sharing is caring!


First of all, I can’t believe I waited this long to share these with you.

It took a lot of self control to wait until pumpkin season and then I found out that tomorrow is National Pancake Day. And I knew that I had to share my favorite pancakes with you.

In my mind, pumpkin goes so perfectly with lots of butter and syrup. Seriously, my mouth is watering just thinking about these pancakes drenched in syrup. They are so good!

I really don’t know what else to say. I love pancakes. I love pumpkin. This is definitely one of those times in which the combination of two awesome things produces something even more awesome!

I know pumpkin pancakes aren’t new, but they are super yummy! So there you have it!


Yield: About 20 pancakes, depending on size

Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes

Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (homemade recipe here
  • ‎2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
In separate bowl whisk together eggs, buttermilk, pumpkin, melted butter and vanilla.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until combined.
Heat skillet over medium to medium low heat and spray with cooking spray.
Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and cook for a few minutes on each side.
They tend to cook better slowly on a lower heat because of their thickness, but they are worth the wait!

I used all purpose flour for both kinds of flour and they were delicious! My house smells amazing! My husband who normally won't eat pancakes tried them and loved them too. Thanks for the great pumpkin recipe! (Yes, pun intended. 😉)
