Pumpkin Pancakes with Bourbon Vanilla Syrup

Only 1 more day until September and while not officially fall, there is no harm in getting a head start on fall baking. Although technically making pancakes is not baking, it still fills the house with the wonderful scents that baking does.

Pumpkin Pancakes with Bourbon Vanilla Syrup

There’s nothing I love better in the fall than baking with pumpkin and sweet potatoes and there’s perhaps no better fall breakfast than pumpkin pancakes, especially when topped with a bourbon vanilla maple syrup. The flavor of the pumpkin is boosted by cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. All those wonderful fall spices that smell so enticing.

Add a pat of butter on top and the flavor combination is out of this world. You’ll want it to be fall all year long.

And if you just can’t get enough pumpkin, try one of these treats too: Pumpkin Spice Bread French Toast  Pumpkin Cake with Maple Frosting, Spicy Pumpkin Bread, Upside Down Pumpkin Pecan Muffins, or Pumpkin Spice Bars.

These look so good; I think I will make them for brunch on Sunday. Do you think the syrup would be okay without the bourbon?

Made these this morning – huge hit! The hubby isn’t used to pumpkin dishes, especially sweet (poor Brit), so I’ve been introducing them to him. This will stay in my recipe files, thanks! :)

So happy you enjoyed it! I could see how pumpkin would take some getting used to if you haven’t been exposed to it.

This sounds delicious and makes me so excited for fall! Especially after a hot, humid, gross day like the one we had in Boston today.

Thanks Melanie! We are getting a last blast of summer too! I think today was the hottest day we’ve had all summer.

I’m all about summery foods, but these pancakes actually made me wish it was fall now. They look so darn good! I bought a big pumpkin a few days ago and now I think I know how I’m going to use it up ;-)

Yay for getting a head start on fall! I would have started back in July if it wouldn’t have made me get funny looks. I’m so over summer and summer foods and so ready for pumpkin and apples and spices (and pretty leaves and sweaters and crisp air!!!) These pancakes look like the PERFECT way to usher in the new season ;)
