Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes

These Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes are unexpectedly divine! Sweet Maple syrup is a match made in pumpkin pancake heaven, and freshly whipped cream gives it that silky pumpkin pie feel. Top with roasted pecans and you will have the coziest, Fall-inspired breakfast to start your day!


  • 2 cups Bisquick (or any pancake mix)

  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups Buttermilk, depending on thickness

  • 15 oz. can Pumpkin Puree (without pie spice!)

  • 1/3 cup Sugar

  • 2 Eggs

  • 3 tablespoons Butter, melted

  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla

  • Maple Syrup, to serve

  • Whipped Cream, to serve

  • Roasted Pecans, to serve 

For the Whipped cream: 

  • 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream, cold

  • 1 tablespoons Sugar, Honey, or Maple Syrup

  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla

For the Roasted Pecans:

  • 1 cup Whole Pecans

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the Bisquick, cinnamon, baking powder and salt until well combined. 


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, pumpkin, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth.  

Incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients by whisking until smooth.  The batter should be thick, but pourable.  Allow the batter to rest for ~15 minutes.

Preheat a skillet over medium heat.  Lightly grease the skillet with butter, and pour batter into the pan in ~1/4 cupfuls.  Cook until the edges are dry and they release easily from the skillet.  Flip; cook until golden.  

Top with maple syrup, whipped cream and roasted pecans (recipes below).  Share with someone you love!

Yields roughly 30 pancakes (4" diameters)

Active Time ~ 45 minutes

Total Time ~ 1 hour

To Freeze:  Cool pancakes completely.  Using parchment paper to separate each pancake, stack them in a freezer-safe ziploc bag.  Store in the freezer for up to 4 months.  Reheat at your convenience using your toaster.  


For the Whipped cream:  In a bowl with high sides, add the whipping cream, sugar and vanilla.  Using your hand mixer or hand blender, whip the ingredients until stiff peaks form; about 1 minute.  Do not over-whip!  Yields about 1 cup. 

For the Roasted Pecans:  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Place the pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or just until fragrant.  Can be stored in an airtight container for ~2 weeks, or in the freezer for ~6 months.
