• 2cups plain flour
  • 4tbsp brown sugar
  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1tsp ground allspice
  • 1tsp nutmeg
  • 2tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4tsp ground cloves
  • 1 1/2cups milk
  • 1/4cup buttermilk
  • 1cup pumpkin pureesee notes
  • 1 egg
  • 2tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4tsp vanilla extract
  1. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, ground ginger, kosher salt, and ground cloves) in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients (milk, buttermilk, pumpkin puree, egg, coconut oil, and vanilla extract) and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir together. Mix until just incorporated – try not to over-stir. It’s okay if the batter is lumpy. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet of medium-high heat. Pour approximately 1/2 cup of the batter in the middle of the griddle and twirl pan in a circular motion to get the batter to spread out evenly to approximately a 5 inch circle. No need to add any additional oil to the pan since the batter already has coconut oil.
  5. Cook until bubbles begin to emerge from the center of the pancake and the sides of the pancake change from shiny to dull, approximately 3-6 minutes. Quickly slide a spatula underneath the pancake and flip over. Cook on this side for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. To keep the pancakes warm while finishing up all the batter, you can place the pancakes on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil in the oven at 200 degrees.
  7. Serve hot, with some pure maple syrup.
Recipe Notes

To make pumpkin puree, preheat over to 108c. Cut pumpkin into large wedges and toss in olive oil. Roast on a tray until soft (around 40 minutes). Cool and blitz in a processor until smooth. Freeze any excess, it keeps well.
