Sometimes your everyday pancake recipe will do just the trick for your family, but with autumn coming and cooler weather finding its way to your home, check out what you can do to make your family all warm inside in the morning.
Warning… this is not your typical plain old pancake recipes for every day breakfasts. These are pancake recipes especially for colder weather fall days… and for those who just want to warm the hearts of their family any time of the year.
Sweet Potato Pancake Recipe
- 1-1/2 cup multi-grain pancake mix
- 1 cup canned sweet potatoes
- 1-1/2 cup apple juice
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
In another bowl, mix:
- 8 ounces vanilla yogurt
- 2 Tablespoons pancake syrup
- 2/3 cup pumpkin butter
Heat a traditional or cast iron skillet or grill; lightly cover with cooking spray or add a pat of butter, and pour the pancake mix onto the hot skillet or grill. Cook until bubbly, then turn over and cook on the other side for 2 to 3 additional minutes or until cooked through.
Here’s another pancake recipe variation that is great for the fall, and this one can use your own biscuit baking mix or Bisquick Mix as its base to make for an easy pancake recipe in addition to its flavorful autumn, Thanksgiving holiday, or Christmas morning flair.
While the above pancake recipe from scratch is pretty easy, this next really easy pancake recipe is sure to top your list of family breakfast menu items once you see how quick and easy they are to make!
Biscuit Mix Pumpkin Pancakes
- 2 cups biscuit baking mix or Bisquick
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1-1/2 cups canned, evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Let mix set for 10 minutes or overnight (covered) in the refrigerator, and then cook on heated and sprayed or buttered cast iron griddle or frying pan, turning over after you see bubbles to cook both sides through.
Or how about these? Yum!

To vary the pancakes you eat on those special autumn days or even for a very special pancake dinner this holiday season, add walnuts, dried dates, pecans, dried cranberries, mini cinnamon chips, butterscotch chips, a chopped apple with a Tablespoon of maple syrup stirred in, or simply top your pancakes with peanut butter and smother with warm maple syrup.
Some people also like to create unique autumn pancakes by serving warmed, flavored syrups with the pancakes they make from their basic pancake recipe, or they will serve their pancakes with hot apple cider or hot chocolate in the morning to make their family’s bellies feel all warm and cozy inside regardless of the cooler autumn temperatures outside.
