Not even the gloomy skies overhead can dampen our appreciation for weekends. In fact, rainy weekend mornings only serve to heighten our eager anticipation of sitting down together to a warm, hearty breakfast.
Or brunch, depending on how bright-eyed and bushy-tailed we feel in the morning.
Kudos to Hubby for being the weekend morning chef when I’m still in dreamland. Needless to say, I’m no morning person. Which is why I appreciate breakfast recipes that can be mostly prepared the night before, like Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole and Eggs Benedict Casserole.
However, we love homemade fluffy pancakes, waffles, eggs, and the whole gig. At least on Saturdays or Sundays. It has become a tradition for us to have hot breakfast together one day a week, since M-F breakfasts are pretty much a DIY thing now that my kids are able to help themselves.
One of these days, I’ll get around to sharing my fave recipes for basic pancakes and waffles. But it is SO pumpkin season right now and our kitchen is pumpkin-loaded. I had to make these unbeatable fluffy pumpkin pancakes for you. Did I mention they are surprisingly healthy?
You’d never know these are good for you by looking at this mouthwatering photo:
I confess, in the past, my quickest go-to pumpkin pancakes came from Trader Joe’s. In years past, I literally hoarded TJ’s seasonal pancake mix because they taste great and are free of artificial ingredients you can’t pronounce.
I’m not saying I won’t still stash a box or two of my beloved TJ’s mix, but after these homemade fluffy pumpkin pancakes…well, as always, nothing beats homemade.
I hope I never lose this blissful pancake recipe. Important side note: the recipes I never want to lose are the only ones that make it on this blog.
These toothsome pancakes are nearly just as easy to whip up as their boxed counterparts. They are the most amazingly tender, fluffy, tasty pumpkin pancakes…dare I say ever? These are scrumptious for breakfast, brunch, and the occasional breakfast-for-dinner.
I was planning to test out the pancakes’ freezability, but the whole batch got devoured; no leftovers to freeze.
These pumpkin pancakes will get inhaled the minute you set them on the table.
If you have a crowd of pancake lovers, you just might need to double the recipe.
Tender, soft, moist, fluffy pancakes with the rustic flavor of pumpkin. Lightly sweet with the warmth of cinnamon and spices. The perfect way to indulge in the flavors of fall. The best way to start a fall weekend morning.
Go ahead. Make ’em, and let your taste buds do the happy dance.
