The most glorious fall mornings consist of crisp air, all the burnt oranges and browns outside my window, fuzzy socks, an oversized sweatshirt, piping hot coffee, and these perfectly fall pumpkin pancakes for breakfast.
Saturdays around our house are considered our pancake mornings. Monday – Friday are more hectic as I’m up early working on blog stuff, then the kids and I are scrambling to get downstairs and start our homeschooling day. Sundays are always crazy as we try to get to church on time, so truly Saturdays are our one day a week for a slow and glorious morning. And switching up our usual buttermilk pancakes for these pumpkin pancakes was a total win.
I mean, are you drooling yet?
My kids go nuts over pancakes anyway, but these pumpkin beauties had my son going back for thirds. And of course how can a Saturday pancake experience be complete without tons of maple syrup on top, a generous dollop of whip cream, and some pumpkin spice sprinkled on top to finish it all off?
Yes friends, you need to make these soooooon.
One of the reasons I love these so much is they require almost no work. Some fall recipes get complicated, that’s not the case with these guys. Whip them up within a few minutes and you’ll be serving your whole family breakfast in under 20!
Plus the leftovers! Yes, they make a lot, but they store well in the fridge for up to four days. Tyrion had them for lunch and hey, I wasn’t about to tell him no.
