Meet the perfect pancake recipe with a twist: Chinese Five Spice Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe — so good and sooo easy!

– buttermilk – pumpkin puree – egg – browned butter – all purpose flour – brown sugar – baking powder – baking soda – salt - Chinese Five Spice – ginger – allspice – heavy cream cold – powdered sugar – vanilla extract – neutral oil, such as avocado or coconut oil


Pre-heat your oven to the lowest setting and place a parchment-lined baking sheet inside. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, pumpkin puree, egg, buttermilk, and browned butter. In a larger bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt. Combine wet ingredients into the dry, mixing until combined.


In a medium-size nonstick pan, heat a few tablespoons of neutral oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, spoon in batter and let cook on one side until bubbles form in the center. Flip and repeat with the remaining batter. Place the completed pancakes on the baking sheet in the oven to keep them warm.


The use of oil instead of butter is essential here to achieve crisp outsides. Using a large bowl with a hand mixer, whip your heavy cream until it starts to come together. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and combine. Keep refrigerated until ready for use. Serve with warm maple syrup, pecans, a pinch of flaky salt, and a spoonful of whipped cream.
