For Serving:

  • Butter, maple syrup, chopped candied pecans (optional)


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, buttermilk, melted butter, egg, vanilla extract, and sugar until well combined.
  • Stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger and pinch of cloves and mix until combined. Do not overmix. A few lumps may remain.
  • Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat and coat with butter or non-stick cooking spray.
  • Working in batches, scoop about ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle/skillet. Cook until the edges look dry and bubbles form on the top. Flip and cook the other side for about 2 minutes or until the pancakes are cooked through and golden brown. Remove the pancakes from the skillet and continue cooking the remaining pancake batter.
  • Keep the pancakes warm in a preheated 200°F oven until all pancakes are cooked. Serve immediately with butter and warm maple syrup.


  • If the batter gets a little thick, simply add a little extra buttermilk. 
  • You can store the pancakes in the refrigerator in a resealable bag or in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Place the cooked pancakes in a warm oven (200 degrees Fahrenheit) while you finish cooking the entire batch.
