These fluffy pumpkin pancakes are bursting with fall flavors! Add your favorite pancake toppings and dig in.
Mix dry ingredients. In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder, spices, wheat germ and salt.
Combine wet ingredients. In a medium bowl combine the sugar, milk, canned pumpkin puree, melted butter and egg. Whisk to combine.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Slowly add the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. There should not be any dry bits of batter.
Prep the griddle. Heat your griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat and lightly grease with butter. Wipe the griddle with a thick wad of paper towel. You shouldn’t be able to see the fat on the griddle.
Cook the pancakes. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Cook pancakes about 2-3 minutes per side, or until bubbles begin to form on the surface and the underside of the pancake is golden (you can check with your spatula by gently lifting an edge). Flip and cook for about 2 minutes on the other side.
Serve. We like apricot jam, maple syrup or apple butter with these pancakes, but your favorite pancake toppings will do just fine!
