  • In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, eggs, milk, yogurt, vanilla, honey, baking powder, salt, spices, and pumpkin. Mix well using a whisk.
  • Add flour and stir until just combined (do not overwork, or pancakes will be dense).
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat until hot. Melt 1/2 tablespoon butter in it, and spoon approximately 1/4 cup of batter into skillet for each pancake. Because the batter is a bit more dense than traditional pancakes, I recommend using a wooden spoon or spatula to smooth out the top to create a thinner pancake. This will ensure that it cooks the whole way through without burning the outside.
  • When edges begin to look cooked, use a large spatula to flip the pancake quickly.
  • Remove cooked pancakes to a plate and continue cooking in batches until the batter is gone, using 1/2 tablespoon more of butter to fry each batch.
  • Top with maple syrup and fixings, and enjoy!


Freezer directions: You can freeze extra pancakes separated with a small piece of parchment paper for up to 6 months in an airtight container or bag. When you want to eat one, just pop in the toaster or microwave for about a minute!
