Our partner Tasting Table shares the best of food and drink culture. Today, Andy Baraghani shows us how to make perfect pumpkin pecan pancakes.

We tested countless batches of these pumpkin pancakes to get the perfect spice blend, the right amount of pumpkin, and just enough pecans for crunch. Once we got them to become perfectly pillowy, they were gone in minutes.

Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes Recipe


  1. 2 cups flour
    4 tablespoons sugar
    1 tablespoon cinnamon
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/2 teaspoon ground clove
    3/4 cup canned pumpkin purée
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup whole milk
    4 tablespoons melted butter, plus more for serving
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3/4 cup chopped pecans
    4 tablespoons canola oil
    Maple syrup, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, nutmeg, salt, allspice, and clove.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin purée, heavy cream, milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients using a wooden spoon. Fold in the pecans.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of canola oil. Working in batches, pour 1/4 cup of the pancake batter into the skillet to form 3-inch round disks. Cook the pancakes until bubbles begin to form and the edges begin to brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until golden, about 2 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining oil and batter. Serve the pancakes hot with butter and maple syrup.
