  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, milk, buttermilk, canola oil, eggs, and pumpkin puree. Whisk together ingredients until smooth.
  2. Heat an oiled griddle pan on medium heat. Portion the pancakes using a ¼ cup measuring cup onto the hot pan.
  3. Cook until bubbles form on the sides of each, then turn over and cook until golden brown. Cook the rest of the batter in batches.
  4. Serve with maple syrup

Chef Tips

I like to keep pancakes warm wrapped in kitchen paper on a plate over simmering water. It keeps them moist, plus since both are on the stove top, it’s easier to move them from the griddle to the plate, than to the oven door for each batch.
