Weekend Breakfast: Pumpkin Pancakes

Happy Saturday!

I highly recommend you start your morning off like we did last weekend.  While shopping in Trader Joe's, I discovered Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle mix on the shelf.  I forced myself to look away, because Will doesn't like to acknowledge seasonal flavors too early (i.e. no egg nog until December 20th).

However he noticed my awkward head movements (or side glances?), and I was in disbelief a few seconds later when he happily agreed to allow the box in the cart.  "It's like fall weather year-round in San Francisco, so why not?"

Uh...these pancakes taste like cake.  They are amazing.

We served our pancakes with some pumpkin-spiced caramelized pecans on top.  A bit of maple syrup, and our morning was off to a good start.

Maybe tomorrow morning we'll make waffles.

Enjoy the weekend!


  1. After you told me about the mix (but before I saw these mouth-watering pics), I looked for it in my store and couldn't find it! I asked the cashier about it, hoping it wasn't one of those special products they only have in the CA stores, and he ran in the back and found me one! It's on the agenda for this weekend. Hope they turn out as good as yours look!

    1. Oh that is awesome they found it in the back for you!
      Some day I should do a blog feature where I highlight my favorite Trader Joe's items.
      Still waiting for my favorite Country Pumpkin Spice granola to hit the shelves...

  2. Those tasted as good as they look!

    1. I know...if we weren't out of eggs and milk, I would have made those yesterday and today!
