Welcome September

pancakes, originally uploaded by Kim De.

Every year, the Kim calendar turns to fall on Sept 1st. Now I realize that meteorological this isnt the first day of fall, but in my heart, it is. Living in the south, I dont usually get to experience fall weather for a few more weeks, but this year, something magical has happened – today was 77 with no humidity. Fall! It called for a celebration, so I pulled out my favorite recipe for pumpkin pancakes.

These pancakes have been a favorite of mine since posted on the Cooking Light Bulletin Board several years back. They call for a pancake mix of your choice, I always use a multigrain. For some reason, these didnt have the pumpkin flavor I remember from years past. If I make them again with this mix, I will add twice the amount of pumpkin. However, they were dense and fluffy, very tasty with a pure maple syrup, or a touch of pumpkin butter.

These will be made again! In the meantime, Welcome September.

Paula's Pumpkin Pancakes (Adapted from CLBB)

2 cups of your favorite dry pancake mix
1 egg
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup canned or fresh cooked pumpkin
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a large bowl Pour small amounts of the batter onto a hot lightly greased griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat.

When bubbles form on the pancakes and the edges begin to brown, flip the pancakes.

Serve with butter, maple syrup or a little bit of honey.


  1. They sound great! We'll be having these, too. I have a pumpkin bread recipe (which I sometimes add chocolate chips to) that I should share with you. It's always a good "fall is here" food for me.

  2. Happy Fall Kim!
    Ihave yet to try pumpkin pancakes but I used to make these awesome pumpkin muffins that I got off the BB. Love pumpkin. And fall.
