These pumpkin pancakes from The Brown Eyed Baker make the perfect breakfast on a chilly fall morning. We’ve swapped out the vegetable oil in the original recipe for a fruity extra virgin olive oil, but we also love these with We Olive Blood Orange Olive Oil!
Makes 6 PANCAKES
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
- ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 cup milk (whole or 2%)
- ½ cup canned pumpkin
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons fruit We Olive Extra Virgin Olive Oil, such as We Olive Arbequina Olive Oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pecans or nuts, optional
- Powder Sugar for sprinkling, optional
- Preheat a griddle to medium heat.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves; set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, pumpkin, egg, We Olive Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients over the flour mixture and whisk gently until completely combined. Set aside for 5 minutes.
- Once the griddle comes to temperature, drizzle with vegetable oil and wipe off excess with a paper towel.
- Ladle ⅓-cup of the batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the edges are set and the bubbles around the edges are open and set. Flip and cook on the second side for an additional 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve immediately. Leftover pancakes can be frozen for up to 1 month.
