Cozy breakfasts are my favorite part of fall. These pumpkin pancakes are the perfect comfort breakfast on a chilly morning especially when its paired with your favorite hot beverage. They taste like pumpkin pie in pancake form — could anything be better?
Pumpkin butter is an excellent way to add a fall spin to your favorite baked treats or breakfasts. Pumpkin purée may seem like an easy go-to, but let me tell you, pumpkin butter is soooo much better. Pumpkin butter starts with a pumpkin purée base, before being cooked for several hours and combined with extra spices, leading to a more complex and delicious flavor.
Top the pancakes with butter (pumpkin or regular), syrup, and a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Try pairing it with a pumpkin spice latte to make the most of pumpkin season while it lasts. Serve these pancakes up for a weekday treat, or a Sunday morning family brunch.
