Fluffy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes from Scratch

Total Time

A friend gave me this recipe. Very fluffy, light and morish! Yoghurt makes this a little different, plus adds to the light texture.


  1. In a large bowl add the flour, spices and baking powder. Use a whisk to airate it and get lots of air inches.
  2. In a seperate bowl, beat the eggs with a beater until foamy - about 3 minutes. Add the yoghurt, milk, pumpkin, vanilla, sugar, and brown sugar. Beat to mix well.
  3. Pour the egg mix into the flour mix and gently fold to combine.
  4. Spoon 1/4 of a cup on to a buttered hot pan and cook over a medium heat.
  5. Let each side cook for about 3 minutes.

Wonderful flavored pancakes and nice switch!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe and followed as written and they were nice and fluffy and moist. We tried them with some butter and a shake of powdered sugar, but not sweet enough for our tastes. We then tried sprinkling on a cinnamon/sugar mixture which went perfectly with these cakes. I also think maple syrup would be good too!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.

This recipe did not work out for me. Maybe it was because I used AP flour, and Greek yogurt, as those were what I had on hand. The batter was super thick, and the pancakes were super dense, did not fluff up at all, and even with 8 minutes on each side, didn't really get done. The taste was great, but consistency was way off.
