Pumpkin Pancakes and Godiva Coffee

I missed blogging this week, although it has been nice to have the extra time to read and do other things.

This morning, I made pumpkin pancakes following this recipe from All Recipes. They turned out delicious! The flavor reminded me of little pumpkin pies.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes from All Recipes
Yield 6 pancakes
(note: I changed the recipe to 4 pancakes and it seemed to make a lot more! I had to freeze and refrigerate the rest)


1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt


In a bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt in a separate bowl. Stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

I paired my pancakes with Caramel Pecan Bark coffee from Godiva, which I received as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program.

I think I prefer the Caramel Pecan Bark flavor over the Pumpkin Spice one, even though I am a huge pumpkin fan!

We got up pretty early this morning, so I feel like I have accomplished a lot so far. I am doing laundry, we did the dishes, and I am just picking up around the house in general. Now I need to get some makeup on so I can head out to Target and maybe Marshall's.

Have a lovely Saturday!


  1. Pumpkin pancakes are awesome. I think I might make some tomorrow! Hope you have a great Saturday. I could spend all day (and too much money) at those two stores.

  2. Yum! Pumpkin pancakes!! I love those Godiva coffees too. Yay Foodbuzz!

  3. Nutritional info for the coffees please? :)

  4. Michael, there aren't any posted online for those particular coffee flavors, but it probably boils down to something like this:

    Check out NuVal too, which always says there are no rankings for coffee because it has no calories. It's what you add to your coffee or tea that adds up. See this article:
