This fall, your family will love delicious and fluffy Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes for breakfast. They're really easy to make, so you'll love them too!
We are a pancake loving family. Much like brownies, I used to only make pancakes from a mix. And, to the same point, much like brownies... I had no idea that a from scratch recipe would be just as easy yet taste a million times better. If you've never had homemade buttermilk pancakes, then you are truly missing out. The buttermilk makes them so incredibly light and fluffy that it will change the way you think about pancakes.
Adding pumpkin to any recipe just makes it more moist and delicious, which is why these pancakes are downright perfect for fall. They taste oh so good with the fall flavors of pumpkin and cinnamon, but they are also very filling. I love adding some nuts or sweetened pumpkin seeds for that added crunch too!
