Easy Pumpkin Pancakes For A Fall Brunch

Try these easy pumpkin pancakes for a fall breakfast or brunch. They are made with canned pumpkin and seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. What a fun treat to offer your friends and family for brunch! Serve them with real maple syrup or strawberry maple syrup on top and a side of sausage or maple flavored bacon.

Put out your fall decorations and an autumn colored tablecloth. Light a cinnamon candle on the table. The few extras in decorating will make this a special brunch.

Pumpkin is an excellent source of Vitamin A and also fiber, making these a healthier alternative than the standard pancake.

These pancakes are a bit more dense than what you may be used to. So, they are not exactly the light and fluffy variety of a pancake. The center is more like the consistency of pumpkin pie. It makes them a bit different, but they were well liked by my husband and son. Serve with whipped cream on top, syrup, fried sausage, and a glass of orange juice. You won’t need much more than that.

This recipe calls for nuts in the batter, but that is completely optional. They add some additional flavor and texture, but can easily be left out.
