Today is a BIG day! Today marks the very first Pumpkin recipe on this little blog of mine! I figure we are nearly halfway through September now so it must be safe to break out the pumpkin. I can’t tell you how excited I am for cooler weather! Somehow we climbed to nearly triple digits this week! It feels like the summer that will never end. But the weatherman keeps promising a drop in temperature so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

In the meantime, I have been baking away in my well air conditioned kitchen pretending that rain is on its way. The aroma of pumpkin coming from the kitchen is one of my favorite smells. It is sweet, spicy and the center of my autumn cravings.

So are you ready for the first pumpkin recipe of many?! Cake batter pumpkin pancakes! Only 5 ingredients in these gorgeous little flapjacks, 4 if you don’t count the pumpkin pie spice. Talk about simple. I have made this recipe with a few different types of cake mixes but I like yellow cake mix. Spice cake mix is also a really good choice. I just prefer the buttery, vanilla flavor from the yellow cake.

I don’t recommend using a low fat sour cream for this recipe as the fat is needed to make these pancakes fluffy and moist! Use as many or as little sprinkles as you like! These pancakes do take a little longer to cook than traditional pancakes so have patience and don’t flip them too early, otherwise you will have a mess on your hands! These are the perfect Saturday morning treat topped with hot maple syrup! And wouldn’t you know that tomorrow is Saturday…so I think you know what you need to make. Β πŸ˜‰

    Hurray for pumpkin recipes! My first one is lined up for Monday. And it’s so funny, because it has been over 100 degrees ALL WEEK! Was very weird making fall baked goods as I’m sweating away in this indian summer. But I am very hopefully it is our last heat wave, and cool weather is coming. Until then, let’s put pumpkin in everything!

    It was somewhat cool over here today and so I’m even more excited about pumpkin recipes than usual, because now they actually fit the weather πŸ™‚ Delicious!

    Hooray for pumpkin! Fall is my absolute favorite time for baking. These pancakes sound delicious, Mariah! I love the cake batter twist! And I think I would devour this entire batch, too! Pinned!

    I love fall, although our falls are always the best when they aren’t very cool! The summery fall days are the amazing ones – like today! Of course, that’s just because the longer it stays warm the less likely we are to have snow in October! πŸ™‚ These pancakes look amazing, I love pumpkin everything this time of year!

    These look great, I love the short ingredient list – I like to delegate the breakfast cooking to my husband on the weekends and I think he could even make these πŸ˜‰
