Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 14 pancakes (4" diameter and super fluffy)


  • 1 cup canned pumpkin, (puree)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, (or 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp allspice)
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  1. Measure out pumpkin, brown sugar, milk, eggs and spices into a large bowl and mix it together.
  2. Add Bisquick to the wet ingredients until thoroughly mixed. The batter will be thick, but hold yourself back and do not thin it out with milk or oil if you want thick and fluffy pancakes.
  3. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to spoon 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto a hot, buttered skillet. Spread the batter out with the bottom of the measuring cup to make 4" circles. Add a little dollop of batter at the top of each circle to make pumpkin stems if you have already had coffee and are feeling creative.
  4. Garnish pancakes to make fun jack-o-lantern facial features. Try using chocolate chips, raisins, craisins, nuts, and triangular slabs of butter.
