  • 1 cup (115g) flour
  • 1/2 cup (115g) pumpkin purée
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup (177mL) milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • olive oil for frying


  • Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk into a pancake batter. It does not matter if a few lumps remain. This is a thick batter but if it seems too thick, add in 1 or so tablespoons of milk.
  • Heat some olive oil in griddle or non stick pan over medium heat, and ladle about ¼ cup batter onto the hot pan for each pancake.
  • Cook pancakes for about 2 minutes until small bubbles start to form on top.
  • Flip and cook for 30-60 seconds until golden.
  • Repeat until all the batter is cooked.


Recipe Tips

  • Wait for the pancakes to start bubbling before flipping them. They won’t be ready to flip before they start to bubble. 
  • To help get fluffy pancakes, don’t be afraid to leave a few lumps in your batter and let the batter rest for 10 minutes before starting to cook them. I use this time to heat the griddle or skillet, set the table, etc. 
  • If you’re making a big batch of them, keep the cooked pancakes warm by storing in the oven on a wire rack on a baking sheet for 5-10 minutes at 200F / 94C.
