I seem to be out of words tonight, but luckily sometimes there are things that don’t need much of an introduction. This Copycat Pumpkin Pancakes recipe is an International House of Pancakes ® copycat recipe. You wouldn’t think that a couple of measly little tablespoons of pumpkin and cinnamon would change the flavor of a simple pancake that much, but these were divine. Fluffy, melt in your mouth, full of pumpkin flavor delicious!

IHOP is one of my favorite places to eat pumpkin pancakes…they certainly know how to do pancakes well. I guess that should be expected since they do have the word “pancakes” in their name! It’d be quite a shame if they didn’t do pancakes well.

One of our favorite things to do as soon as it turns fall is to head to IHOP for our annual Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast. After that one initial time in the fall, we skip heading out to the restaurant and instead make this recipe instead. It tastes almost exactly like the pumpkin pancakes you find at IHOP, but you don’t have to leave your house or even change out of your pajamas. You can enjoy your pumpkin pancakes right in the comfort of your own home, and much more affordably, I’ll add.

If you are a fan of pumpkin pancakes, I would definitely give this IHOP Copycat Recipe a try! Enjoy!
