Pumpkin Pancake recipe for Thanksgiving morning

Thanksgiving morning may be my favorite morning of the year. Don’t get me wrong, there are many other noteworthy mornings (Christmas, Mother’s Day, my birthday), but there’s one thing Thanksgiving morning has over all those others, a big parade.

That’s right, I am a fan of the Macy’s Day Parade. Actually, the whole family is. Jonah watches for the new Hess vehicle he’ll want for Christmas. Ellie sings along with her favorite pop stars. Dave rolls his eyes when I start dancing along with Broadway, even though we both know he secretly loves it. Don’t fight it Dave. Give in to the Jazz hands.

I don’t always cook a Thanksgiving meal, so having a special breakfast while we watch the parade is my culinary contribution to the holiday. One of items always on the festive breakfast menu? Pumpkin Pancakes. We eat them right at the coffee table.

I adapted the recipe from an old Better Homes & Garden Cookbook my mom bought me years ago. They’re not super fancy, but they have that quality of home-cooked goodness from Mom’s kitchen. They’re memory makers.

Ingredients:

pumpkin pancake ingredients for Thanksgiving morning from classic-play.com

1 cup flour
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (we like 2)
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 Tbsp melted butter

Combine dry ingredients in bowl. Mix. Add wet ingredients. Stir to combine. Ladle onto hot griddle. Cook over medium to medium-high heat until golden on one side. Flip. Cook until golden on other. Serve with lots and lots of butter and warm maple syrup.

    I highly recommend practicing. Many samples should be tasted before the big day.

    Amelia, we’re totally into that now too! It also makes me realize that our chihuahua could use some training. ;)

    YAY! It worked for you. So glad the girls loved them. They should get together with Ellie and Jonah and have a pumpkin pancake eating contest.

    Hi, this looks delicious but i was wondering is there any way i could make these gluten free

    Hi Kaitlyn,

    So sorry it took me so long to reply :( I’m actually not that well versed in gluten free cooking so I fear I’m not all that helpful. But, I’m assuming you could just substitute gluten-free flour?

    In the meantime, I did a search and found these: http://www.againstallgrain.com/2013/11/26/pumpkin-pancakes-bacon-pecans/

    They look delicious!

    Hi!

    Maybe a strange question, but where did you get your coffee cups and colored bowls at? I have been looking everywhere for those same style!

    Thank you!

    Jennifer Cooper Reply:

    Hi Rachel! Not a strange question at all. The cups are from Crate & Barrel. They were part of our wedding registry so many years ago. The bowls are from Anthropologie. I bought those years ago too so I don’t think they sell them anymore. Sadly one broke so now I have an odd set of three. *sniff* I can only use them for side dishes.
