These Pumpkin Pancakes Are So Easy To Make Using Boxed Pancake Mix

The reason these pancakes are easy?? Well, because they are cheater pumpkin pancakes. That’s right. I cheated and used store bought pancake mix. My Mom has made these for years and I used to make my own from scratch. Actually, I used to make a whole lot of types of pancakes from scratch.

Then I went and had twins. Two adorable chunky demons who slobber and cry all the time. And when that happened, I bought a box of pancake mix. Sure, once the girls can entertain themselves for half a second I will get back to making pancakes from scratch…but until then, this gives Jorge & I our Sunday pancake fix in 10 minutes. Yahoo!

So while I was making these (and shoveling them into my face in between playing peek-a-boo), I thought you might actually want to know how to make easy pumpkin pancakes too. I mean, you are probably going to have a house full of family Thanksgiving morning. Who has the time to make real pancakes while also cooking a whole Thanksgiving meal??

Since I won’t talk to you before Thursday, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I will be spending mine with my family and then doing some Black Friday shopping (online — I’m not leaving my couch or fighting with the crazies). Mama needs a new TV! 😉
