pumpkin spiced pancake recipe


Our pumpkin spiced pancake recipe with homemade apple cider syrup is one of our favorite fall breakfast recipes. Guests and family always ask for them. What a perfect start to a crisp autumn day!



2 1/3 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1/3 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 1/4 cups milk
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 Tbl. brown sugar
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 eggs


Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 350°F. Grease griddle with vegetable oil if necessary. In medium bowl, stir all pancake ingredients until well blended. For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook other sides until golden brown. For a special treat, we use heart shaped pan cake molds and sprinkle the pancakes with confectioners sugar just before serving. Frank is convinced they taste better cooked in the molds.

Apple Cider Syrup:

½ cup white sugar
1 Tbl. corn starch
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup apple cider
1 Tbl lemon Juice
2 Tbl. butter

To make the syrup, stir together the sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a saucepan. Stir in the apple cider and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until mixture begins to boil; boil until the syrup thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the 2 tablespoons of butter until melted. Serve warm.
