How To Make Pumpkin Pancakes With Pancake Mix
Here are the 4 simple steps to make the tastiest Bisquick pancakes with pumpkin puree recipe:
- Lightly grease a griddle or large skillet with cooking spray. Then set the griddle temperature to 350°F, or set the skillet over medium-low heat on the stove.
- Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl, then whisk or use a fork to stir until just blended. You do not want to over-mix the batter, and a few clumps of flour are fine. Let the pumpkin pancake Bisquick batter rest for a few minutes; when it starts to bubble a bit, it’s ready to cook.
- Use a measuring cup to scoop 1/4 to 1/3 cup of pancake batter and carefully add to the hot griddle or skillet. Cook them for a minute or two until the edges become solid and light brown, and flip.
- Continue to cook each pancake until the top and bottom are golden. You can flip back and forth one more time to get both sides evenly cooked.
Serve them warm with your favorite toppings and breakfast dishes.
- Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes: Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the batter before cooking.
- Pumpkin Spice Pancakes: Add an extra 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, or to taste.
- Pecan Pumpkin Pancakes: Stir 1/4 cup of chopped pecans into the batter.
- Buttermilk Pumpkin Pancakes: Substitute 1 cup of buttermilk for the milk called for in the recipe.
What to Serve With Pumpkin Pancakes
These pancakes are amazing all on their own, but if you want to add a little something extra, try one of these delicious toppings:
- Butter and 100% pure maple syrup
- Whipped cream and cinnamon sugar
- Fresh berries or sliced bananas
- Chopped pecans or walnuts
- Cream cheese frosting
- Caramel sauce
- Chocolate chips or chocolate syrup
How To Store Pumpkin Pancakes
Pancakes are best served fresh and warm from the griddle. However, if you need to store them, place them in a single layer on a cooling rack set over a baking sheet. Cover with foil or plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Can you freeze pancakes made with Bisquick mix?
Leftover pancakes freeze very well! Stack cooled pancakes with pieces of parchment or waxed paper between the layers. Then wrap the entire stack in a layer of aluminum foil.
They will keep well for up to 2 months.
How to reheat Frozen pancakes
Cover a frozen pancake with a damp paper towel and place it on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave in 30-second intervals on 50% heat until warm.
For a crisper pancake, bake them from frozen in a 400ºF preheated oven for about 5 minutes. Or toast them in the toaster on the lightest setting.

Bisquick pancake mix is itself vegan and dairy-free, and it’s easy to substitute the added dairy components. Instead of butter and milk, use your favorite plant-based butter and your preferred non-dairy milk. Almond and oat milk are both nice options that go well with the pumpkin flavor.
