  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced plus more for garnish

for frying

  • 3 tablespoons neutral oil


  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add buttermilk, pumpkin, eggs, and butter and mix together using a fork, making sure not to over mix.
  • Gently fold in the cheese and green onions.
  • Place a skillet over medium heat add 1 teaspoon oil. Pour 1/3 cup of the pancake mix into the skillet and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until you see small bubbles forming on the top of the pancake.
  • Gently flip the pancake over and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Once the pancake has cooked through, transfer onto a platter and repeat until all of the batter has been used.
  • Top the pancakes with more green onions and serve with a side of softened salted butter and fried egg (optional).


**Makes 8 to 10 Pancakes**
  • To Freeze:Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and line pre-made pancakes in a single layer, making sure they don't touch. Place baking sheet in the freezer and freeze pancakes, about 30 minutes to an hour. Transfer frozen pancakes to a resealable bag and store for up to 3 months.
  • To reheat in the oven: Transfer frozen pancakes to a baking dish in a single layer and tightly wrap with foil. Bake pancakes for 10-15 minutes until heated through and warm.
  • To reheat in microwave: Transfer pancakes onto a plate in a single layer and cover with a lightly dampened paper towel or clean dish cloth. Microwave on full power, in 30 second intervals, until pancakes are soft and warm.
  • To reheat in toaster: This method can be done, but the results will yield a more crisp pancake that isn't as soft as the other methods of reheating. If you don't mind that, then this is another quick reheating method you can use.
