  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup buttermilk at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Butter and maple syrup for serving


  • Preheat an electric griddle pan to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg, pumpkin, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Don't over mix the batter. The batter will be thick. You can add a little more buttermilk if you want thin pancakes.
  • Coat with griddle pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto heated skillet. Cook on the first side until bubbles begin to form, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully flip pancake over and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Continue this process to make the rest of the pancakes.
  • Serve pancakes warm with butter and maple syrup, if desired.


*Note-if you don't have an electric griddle pan, you can use a skillet and make the pancakes on the stove. Heat the pan to medium heat, spray with nonstick cooking spray, and cook the pancakes in the pan. You can use whole wheat flour or all-purpose gluten free flour.
