Copycat Pumpkin Pancakes

I seem to be out of words tonight, but luckily sometimes there are things that don’t need much of an introduction. This pancake 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!

Speaking of shortcuts, I am not sure if I have mentioned this before or not, but a lot of the recipes I use call for buttermilk. I never buy buttermilk. I always use 1 Tbs of lemon juice (or white vinegar) per 1 cup of milk. Let the lemon juice/milk sit for about 10 minutes until it curdles. Stir together and you have a great buttermilk substitute!

  1. Just made these for breakfast. Really delicious. And not too overly pumpkiny. This is coming from a girl who is not a big fan of pumpkin pie. I did halve the recipe since I was just cooking for 2, and it was still A LOT of pancakes. Better to have too many than too few though. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. It’s good!!

  3. I use cultured BUTTERMILK blend it’s for cooking and baking.
    It comes in a can & it takes 4tbs. to a cup of water

  4. I’m from the Netherlands and I will make thise pancakes tommorow. Which topping fits the best with these pancakes?
