Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes

I made these light and fluffy soft buttermilk pancakes a few times. My big kids loved them very much and commented "they tasted like McD hotcakes :D".

I've added some mashed pumpkin to the batter ... so we have another variation of pancakes .... Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes for our weekend brekkie ^-^!

Recipe source : myrecipes
Below my slightly modified version with added mashed pumpkin.

Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes
Ingredients :
126g all-purpose flour
1.5 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt

60g mashed pumpkin (peeled and deseeded, cut roughly in small pieces and steam the pumpkin till softened. Drain any water and mash the pumpkin with a fork while still hot)
200g Buttermilk
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Method :
1) Lightly whisk and combine the dry ingredients (A) in a large bowl, and make a well in centre of mixture.

2) In another smaller bowl, whisk ingredients (B) till combined and pour to (A) and whisk with a manual whisk until smooth.

3) Heat the non-stick griddle or pan with low flame. Dap some cooking oil with kitchen towel and lightly grease onto the non-stick griddle or pan.

4) Spoon batter of your desired size into the pan (big spoon, ladle or ice-cream scoop).
Flip gently with a spatula when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Cook for another 1 - 2 minutes or till golden brown on both sides.

Serve with drizzled maple syrup over the warm pancakes. Top with your preferred berries/fruits or savoury ham/bacon.

So fluffy soft ^-^!
Yummy ! Enjoy ... simply ♡ these fluffy soft pancakes!

  8. Hi Karen,

    These pancakes look so moist and fluffy! I'm sure pumpkin is the magic ingredient in this recipe!!!


  9. Hi Karen, I have this recipe but when I saw buttermilk, just didn't want to make them. I believe this is good pancake. Any idea if what we can use to replace the butter milk with?

    1. Hi Kimmy,
      For some of my muffins & pancakes, I've ever used milk and increased slightly on baking powder but the texture is not so fluffy vs using of buttermilk.
      Perhaps info in this link is helpful

  10. Karen, your pancakes look so yummy! I can see that they are fluffy good. And oh, I spotted a piece of bacon hee..hee..

    1. Hee hee ... You're right Phong Hong, just 1 small piece of savoury bacon with my maple syrup fluffy pancakes yummy!

  11. Hi Karen, your pancake looked so soft and fluffy! Pancake is my family 'must-have' breakfast on weekend. But ususally I make the plain one bcos my children prefer to eat it with jam and sausages.

  12. Hi Amy, thanks. I usually make the plain ones too ... they have asked lesser of McD hotcakes now since we could replicate something similar at home.
