Original recipe located at:

I had some leftover pumpkin pie filling that I needed to use up, so I decided to make pumpkin (pie) pancakes, since the carrot cake pancakes were such a hit.  As this recipe calls for pumpkin puree, I adjusted the sugar and spices accordingly (but am including the original recipe below as I eyeballed my spices).  I did add ginger and a bit of the other spices, because I like there to be a good hint of spice in the pancakes.

They turned out very light and fluffy, flavorful but not overpowering.  I added some chocolate chips to a few of them because, well, chocolate chips are a good addition to many things!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar


  1. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt, stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
