Pumpkin Apple Spice Pancakes Recipe

Pancakes are a pretty big deal in our house, and sometimes I’m afraid to mess with the flavor too much because my girls usually just like the good ol’ fashioned buttermilk version, just as they are; they even prefer plain pancakes to the chocolate chip version! (I definitely didn’t see that one coming.) So imagine my surprise when they actually LOVED these Pumpkin Apple Spice Pancakes!

These are super easy to make using a muffin mix as the base – the Pumpkin Spice Supreme Muffin Mix by Krusteaz.

In addition to the box of muffin mix, you’ll need: 

  • 1.5 cups water
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 medium apple

This is one of my Baker’s Dozen recipes for Krusteaz, so you can find the full recipe w/ instructions right here on the Krusteaz website. Scroll down for a cute THANKSGIVING inspired presentation idea below before you go though…

If you’ve got little ones too – or just love #cutefood yourself – here’s a fun way to make this breakfast even more exciting to *gobble* up………. turkey shaped pancakes!

These little pancake-and-apple turkeys are especially appropriate around Thanksgiving time, but I don’t see why they can’t come out and play at any time of year, really, right? Especially when they’re this easy to make: just fan out thin slices of apple for the feathers, then cut circles, a triangle and thin rectangles for the face and legs/feet. Craisins make for quick & easy eyeballs, and you can cut a small piece from one of them for the turkey’s snood (over the beak).
