Pumpkin Pancakes With Caramel-Coconut Topping

I usually associate pumpkin recipes with the autumn. I have been wanting to try these pancakes forever and didn’t get to it last fall. But you know what? Pumpkin tastes just as good in February and even better when there is caramel added to the equation. These are seriously good. Everyone in the kitchen loved them.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Pancake ingredients:

2 cups flour
3 Tbs brown sugar
1 Tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups milk
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Caramel-coconut topping ingredients:

1 1/3 cup caramel topping
1 cup toasted coconut
1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans


1. In a large bowl combine flour and other dry ingredients. In another bowl combine eggs and remaining ingredients. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until slightly lumpy.

2. Heat and lightly grease a griddle or your favorite pancake making pan. For each pancake pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle. Cook until golden; turn when tops are bubbly and the edges are slightly dry (1 to 2 minutes per side).

3. Heat all of the topping ingredients until warm.

Makes about 16 pancakes and 2 3/4 cups topping. (Make all of the topping. Trust me. Everyone wants more.)

I served the pancakes with a bit of maple syrup around the plate because I am really bad and because I live in Vermont.

Of course there has to be a breakfast song.

Kristoffer Ragnstam-Breakfast By The Mattress

This song is from the album Breakfast In Suburbia. It makes me think of Elvis Costello and John Wesley Harding wrapped into one sweet song.

The Telepathic Butterflies-A Scathing Report

This next song has nothing to do with breakfast or pancakes or toppings. I just love it. So good.

    I love pancakes, I love pumpkin. and why is adding maple syrup to the plate bad? Its a crime against nature to NOT add real maple syrup to pancakes!

    I made these today….oh my were they good! So moist and yummy. Even Brendan tried a little bite and it got his stamp of approval. You’ll be glad to know that I, too, served this with maple syrup. Yum!

    Great! I did just get back from rehearsal with the band and I stumbled across this post. Glad to see that you enjoy Broken Wrists! I’ll tell the band next time I see them. We did a new recording of the sonf for the susy records EP. Which one do you like the best? Best regards, Samuel (trombone player of Faster Glenn)

    • Samuel, you made my day by stopping by! The band could hardly improve upon Broken Wrists as it was already brilliant. I love both versions. You’ll have to let me know what the band likes to eat. I’ll cook it up and sing to another Faster Glenn song. :)

        I just talked to Christoffer, our singer, telling him about your post and he was very excited. How did you get to hear our music first?
        I’m not sure what kind of food the band likes. We have not discussed food much really, but one of my own favourites in recent time is panzanella, Italian bread salad. Let me know if you need help with soundfiles of our songs for sharing. =)
