HELLO FALL.

It’s been incredibly beautiful here in Chicago with its crisp Fall days. The leaves are changing colors, the sweaters are coming out, and the pumpkin pancakes are legit taking over all of our kitchens.

I mean, I may have made this 4 times this week. After all, I waited all summer just for these days! For that mile-high stack of super fluffy, incredibly buttery pumpkin pancakes with little morsels of semisweet chocolate goodness. Served with just enough maple syrup for all my morning needs.

It’s simply perfection on a plate. And I will enjoy every morning of pumpkin season for as long as I can!

    These are really good! I used mini chocolate chips and had to use a tiny bit of water to loosen up the batter, but the kids loved them as a Halloween themed breakfast- plus my dog liked having a small spoonful of leftover pumpkin purée as a treat

  2. Sounds delicious!  Can they be frozen?

  3. Yum. very good for brunch. thanks!

    These were very good, light and fluffy even though pumpkin is heavy. Will make again. I think they fry better in oil than butter because butter burns at the temperature you use for pancakes.

    Made these this morning and loved the pumpkin flavor. My family devoured them (even the picky eater). I will definitely be making these all through pumpkin season!

    I only ever made regular pancake (the one with egg and flour only), should try this someday and see if the kids like it. Thanks for sharing.

    I made the recipe exactly as written and they are delicious! I made them for a Saturday brunch and everyone thought they were fantastic! They are the perfect amount of sweet and the cinnamon and pumpkin provide great flavor.
