- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices.
- In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, pumpkin puree, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
- Heat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and grease it with a bit of butter or cooking spray.
- For each pancake, ladle about 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot griddle. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown.
