  • Skillet
  • Mixing Bowls


  • 2 large Eggs
  • 3/4 cups Milk
  • 3/4 cups Pumpkin Purée (from a can)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Homemade Pancake Mix (recipe below)
  • 2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Butter, for greasing the pan
  • Butter and Syrup, for serving


  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Whisk the eggs in a large mixing bowl until the yolks and whites are evenly combined. Stir in the milk, pumpkin purée, and vanilla extract. In a separate mixing bowl stir together the pancake mix, granulated sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring them with a wooden spoon just until combined (don't overmix - the batter should be quite lumpy).
  • When the skillet is hot, lightly grease the surface with butter. Gently ladle the pancake batter onto the griddle. When bubbles begin to set around the edges and the skillet-side is golden, gently flip the pancakes. Continue to cook 2-3 minutes longer until the pancake is cooked through. Serve immediately.
