IHOP Pumpkin Pancakes

Recipe for IHOP Pumpkin Pancakes

My youngest tried to run into traffic yesterday. It scared me half to death. He always walks out to the mailbox with me in the afternoon and yesterday he decided to run off down the street. In two seconds he was gone and I was running like a madwoman after him. I grabbed him right before he stepped off the curb. Then he was mad the rest of the afternoon since he received a long time out. As I was on the phone with my dad last night he volunteered to talk to my youngest. I turned him down. My dad is the sweetest person in the world, except he would tell me the scariest stories to get me not to do things growing up. In order to get me not to run into the street he told me what happened to our neighbor's cat. I was 5 and I don't think I ever tried to run into the street again. He also had a story with a clown and is one of the major reasons I hate the circus. I don't remember what the lesson was about, but I'm positive I never did the behavior again. They were very effective though and I never did the behaviors again. When I pointed this out to him on the phone, he laughed and told me that he learned from grandmother. I believe him since my grandmother had a look that could turn your blood cold. Whatever you did you would never do again. Ever. I think I need to learn these skills with my youngest. He is the opposite of his older brother and once every couple of weeks does something to give me a panic attack. I think it's going to be a very long 14 years until college. Earlier in the week before the traffic incident I made IHOP Pumpkin Pancakes for my family for breakfast.

This recipe has 11 ingredients. It takes 20 minutes of total time, all of which is active and makes 4 servings. I did make a few changes to the original recipe. First I was out of eggs so I followed the recipe with the eggs omitted. I increased the amount of pumpkin to 2/3 cup and the oil to a little under a 1/4 cup. Pancakes always turn out best for me using my griddle and that was the method I used for this recipe. They came out nicely browned and perfectly cooked.

My kids ate these pancakes for breakfast and loved them. They had a great smell and my kids liked them with just a little bit of butter. My favorite part was that they were easy to wrap in a paper towel with a little bit of butter and walk to the bus. They were definitely easy to transport since they didn't need maple syrup. I would suggest doubling the recipe if you have big eaters. I had to make another batch in order for my whole family to have enough.

For the recipe go to IHOP Pumpkin Pancakes.

  1. These look delicious. My youngest is like that. He has no fear so I feel like I have to have enough for both of us.

  3. Wow that is scary. My 8yr old used to do things like that when we lived in NY. We would be walking to his grandmas house and he would just dart across the street with me right behind calling him. No fear in the world. Madison is the total opposite, she would walk right beside you but she doesn't want you holding her hand. Those pumpkin pancakes look delicious, I would so love to learn how to make their stuffed ones though. :)

    1. My youngest has no fear either, but my oldest is scared of everything. It's funny how kids can be so different from each other!

    PS: I'm sure your youngest is just going through a phase. The stories of your dad are funny though. They just may work! Haha.
