• 2 cups flour (125 g)
  • ¼ cup sugar (50 g), or sweetener of choice
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups milk (355 mL), plus more if needed
  • ¼ cup butter (57 g), melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (225 g)


  • Step 1

    Combine together the flour, sugar (or sweetener), baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large-sized bowl.

  • Step 2

    Make a well in the centre and whisk in the milk, slightly cooled melted butter, vanilla and egg. Whisk in the pumpkin puree until smooth.

  • Step 3

    Heat a nonstick pan or griddle over low-medium heat and wipe over with a little butter to lightly grease pan.

  • Step 4

    Pour 1⁄4 cup of batter onto the pan and spread out gently into a round shape with the back of your ladle or measuring cup. When the underside is golden and bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip with a spatula and cook until golden. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • Step 5

    Serve with your choice of topping.
