Eating Pumpkin Pancakes is like eating dessert for breakfast. Our favorite pancake recipe in the fall season! Try our Caramel Maple Syrup to make them even better!
You need to put these Pumpkin Pancakes with Caramel Maple Syrup and Candied Pecans on your must try list! It was like eating dessert for breakfast. I absolutely love pumpkin flavored everything, it is one of my favorite things about fall. That being said, the best part of these pancakes is actually the syrup — it is incredible! It is a caramel type of syrup with a hint of maple flavor and cinnamon and it is to die for. What takes it even more over the top is the candied pecans. Because of these three things, this is one of the best breakfast recipes to make this fall. They are so easy to make and they make your house smell like you are at a sporting event where vendors sell sweet roasted nuts.
Quick Basic Pancake Recipe
I took some shortcuts on this recipe and used some ready made dry pancake mix as my base for the pancakes, which I personally think ended up tasting every bit as good as made from scratch. But if you don’t have pancake mix and are wanting to make the batter from scratch here is a quick recipe for dry pancake mix (once you mix it up, just measure out 2 cups for the pumpkin pancake recipe):
- 4 cups flour
- 3/4 cups dry milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
