Pumpkin Spice Pecan Pancakes are warmly spiced pumpkin pancakes sprinkled with pecans and slathered in homemade Cinnamon Maple Butter. They are excellent with a dollop of whipped cream or your favorite topping!

Wanna know what to do with that little bit of leftover pumpkin in the fridge? Add it to your pancakes with some warm spices and pecans and you’ll have a delicious new take on breakfast!

If you make pancakes often, it’s good to have a variety of pancake recipes in your pancake recipe reportoire. I love to take my regular pancake recipe and turn it into different varieties. I was trying to figure out what to do with a partial can of pumpkin puree one morning when this delicious Pumpkin Spice Pecan Pancake recipe was born, and it sure didn’t dissappoint!

How To Make The Pancakes

  1. Combine dry ingredients, including brown sugar, in a medium bowl and whisk or use a fork to combine.
  2. In a separate large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, eggs, and buttermilk. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and mix together until the mixture is fairly smooth.  Don’t overmix.  Allow the batter to sit for about 3 minutes while you preheat the griddle.
  3. Preheat a griddle to 350 degrees.  Brush the hot griddle with butter.
  4. Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, or ladle, (or make the size you prefer), pour batter onto the griddle, slightly spreading the batter with the bottom of the measuring cup.  Make sure the pancakes are spaced a couple of inches apart.  Sprinkle a few pecan pieces over the top.  Once small bubbles start appearing on top of the batter, flip the pancakes and grill the other side until golden brown.  Transfer pancakes to a plate or warming rack and top with butter or Cinnamom Maple Butter.
