Caramelized cinnamon sugar swirls in a stack of soft, tender, and fluffy pumpkin pancakes – truly a dream ????recipe below! #Recipe Details: Ingredients: – 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour @Bob’s Red Mill – 3 tbsp coconut sugar or brown sugar – 1 1/4 tsp baking powder – 3/4 tsp baking soda – 1/4 tsp salt – 1 tsp cinnamon – Optional: 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice – 1/2 cup pumpkin puree – 3/4 cup + 2 tbsp buttermilk (can sub milk of choice) – 1 tbsp butter, melted – 1 egg – 1 tsp vanilla extract Cinnamon Swirl: – 4 tbsp butter, softened – 1/4 cup granulated sugar – 2 tsp cinnamon – 1 tbsp of the pancake batter Maple Glaze: – 1/2 cup powdered sugar – 2 tbsp maple syrup + 1 tbsp milk – 1/2 tsp vanilla extract Instructions: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, coconut or brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice (if using). In a medium bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, buttermilk, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and use a spatula or wooden spoon to mix until just combined. In a small separate bowl, make the cinnamon swirl mixture by mixing together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tbsp of the pancake batter. Transfer the mixture to a small plastic sandwich baggie, and snip a small portion of the corner off. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and grease with butter. Use a 1/4 cup to pour the pancake batter into the skillet for each pancake. Use the piping baggie full of the cinnamon swirl mixture and gently swirl the mixture into the pancake, pushing slightly into the batter so the cinnamon mixture swirls into the batter, not just on top. Once bubbles appear on the surface, gently flip the pancake over and cook the other side for a minute, or until golden. Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon swirl mixture. Serve pancakes warm with additional butter, maple syrup, or a simple glaze if desired.

Pancake batter:

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown or coconut sugar
1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (optional)
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cinnamon swirl:

4 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon of pancake batter

Maple glaze:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1: Mix dry ingredients

First, whisk the flour (Kiley uses Bob’s Red Mill), sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl.

Step 2: Mix wet ingredients

Next, whisk together pumpkin puree, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla in a medium bowl.

Step 3: Combine wet and dry ingredients

Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix with a spatula or wooden spoon. Make sure the ingredients are fully mixed.

Step 4: Prep the cinnamon swirls

Mix softened butter, sugar, cinnamon and a tablespoon of the pancake batter in a small bowl. Move this mixture to a small plastic baggie and cut a tiny corner of the bag off. This bag will be used to create the cinnamon roll swirls in the pancakes.

Step 5: Pour batter onto a hot skillet

Set a large skillet or griddle over medium heat; drop in a pat of butter. From there, pour pancake batter to create each pancake and then maneuver the small bag to create cinnamon swirls. It should lightly push into the batter, not just rest on the surface.

Step 6: Flip!

When bubbles appear, it’s time to flip that pancake. Cook for around a minute or until golden.

Just add maple syrup and you’ve got an unforgettable fall breakfast!
