Pumpkin Spice Cake Mix Pancakes

Posted on September 3, 2013
Good morning, Everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend and that this week has started off well for you. If you’re looking for a good breakfast recipe this week, I have one for you this morning! I don’t make pancakes too often, my husband is a much better pancake maker than I am and usually makes them on Saturday mornings, but every once in a while I get a serious craving for them and make a batch myself! I’ve been seeing so many Birthday Cake Mix pancakes around the blog world which gave me the idea to make these fall inspired Pumpkin Spice Cake Mix Pancakes! And oh my goodness, was it a good idea! These pancakes are super soft and fluffy with the warm flavors of pumpkin and fall spices!
*Makes about 10 pancakes*
1/2 box Spice Cake Mix (about 7.5 oz)
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
*Optional: chopped walnuts or pecans
Extra oil or butter for greasing pan
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the cake mix, canned pumpkin, vegetable oil, milk and egg, making sure that there aren’t any lumps in the batter. Add some oil or butter to your pan or griddle, and begin making your pancakes using a 1/4 cup measure to drop the batter onto your pan (this makes small pancakes, so if you prefer larger ones use a larger measuring cup! It’s easier to cook these when they are smaller though.) Cook until the edges begin to brown a little and bubbles begin to appear on the surface of the pancake, then flip the pancakes and cook on the other side, until the pancakes have cooked through. (*Note: If the batter doesn’t seem thick enough or doesn’t have the pancake consistency that you like, just add a couple of tablespoons of all-purpose flour! )

Happy Cooking, Everyone!

    One of my son’s favorite breakfasts is pancakes, but I get bored with the same recipe over and over. With Fall on the horizon, I’ll have to give these a try. They sound really good!

    Hi. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I made them Saturday on an electric griddle. I am thinking I did something wrong because by the time they were done enough to flip they were too dark.Did you make these pancakes on a regular stove and at what Temperature? They tasted wonderful but If I turned them too soon they were not done and if I waited till they were able to flip it seemed like they were too dark.

    • Maria September 9, 2013 at 9:54 am

      Hi Missy! I’m glad you liked these. I cooked them in a regular pan, as you would regular pancakes, but I always make my pancakes pretty small (I use a 1/4 cup measure to make them) which makes it easier for me to flip them. Or maybe adding a little bit of flour would help because it would change the consistency of the batter a little bit. Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great week! 🙂
