3 Fluffy Pumpkin Pancake Recipes for Fall Weekend Vibes

I’m leaning into pumpkin season—hard. If I can’t control the weather (it’s sunny and 75°F outside, as I write this…), I can at least beckon fall through the flavors in my kitchen. Accordingly, I’ve been subsisting solely off of a sheet-pan pumpkin mac and cheese for about a week, and making stacks and stacks of pumpkin spice pancakes for breakfast.

More stacks than I’d like to admit. At this stage, it’s very possible that I’m about one-and-a-half pancakes away from turning into a pumpkin, myself. Who could blame me? Fluffy, tender pancakes are the perfect vessel for deep pumpkin-y flavor, mixed with all sorts of fall spices, like cinnamon, nutmeg, or ground ginger. Add a little maple syrup (plus a lot of butter—or better yet, whipped cream), and it’s hard to remember why you’d brunch any other way.
