  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1 cup Unbleached AP Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cup Buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 3/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Pumpkin Spice
  • Optional Toppings: Whipped Cream, Chopped Nuts, Pumpkin Spice, Maple Syrup, Butter Pats



Heat skillet to about 350 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together, flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. In a separate bowl, add melted butter, eggs, buttermilk, and pumpkin, whisk to combine.


Make a well in your dry ingredients, add wet ingredients to well and use a rubber spatula and begin mixing. Make sure to run the rubber spatula along the side of the bowl to ensure you are mixing everything. When combined, stop mixing to avoid over mixing.


Run some butter over skillet, use an ice cream scoop to scoop your batter on to skillet. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Finish by flipping and cooking the other side for an additional 1-2 minutes. Repeat until you have used up all your batter. Serve with whatever optional toppings you would like!
