How’s that title for an attention grabber? 😉
And I don’t exaggerate in the slightest…tonight’s dinner was a stack of super fluffy pancakes that were perfectly crisp on the outside yet soft and smooth on the inside JUST like bread pudding!
Which by the way, if you’re ever in the Nashville area and have a hankering for bread pudding you have got to
call me and I’ll come meet you try South Street’s New Orleans Bread Pudding with Jack Daniels Sauce…seriously, to.die.for!
But before we get on to the recipe and pictures, a little aside:
I take a lot of pride in the pictures that I post here on the blog…possibly more so than I feel for the recipes I come up with, because let’s face it, you eat with your eyes first! That being said, you’ll imagine my upset when I realized the sun’s cruelty as it stretched it’s final light-filled streak across the sky about 10 minutes BEFORE I plated my pancakes.
*Insert grumbling and fumbling around with camera settings*
Playing around with a custom white balance works wonders, but it’s still no substitute for natural light…if it weren’t so darn cold, I’d actually consider moving to Alaska!
*Insert more grumbling once I upload the pictures to the computer and see the odd greenish tint they all seem to have*
Zucchini pancakes can be green, spinach pancakes can be green, pumpkin pancakes can NOT be green!
*Insert the “lightbulb-over-the-head eureka moment” when I realize there may still a chance*
Thank you iPhoto for the “antique effect”!
Because, you know, these pancakes aren’t just delicious…but they’re also vintage! 😉

What’s your favorite kind of pancakes?
Do you prefer to “stuff ’em” or “top ’em”?
I seriously cannot wait to try this recipe! It looks great! 🙂
Thank you Kim!
Ooh I’ve never tried stuffed pancakes! Maybe I’d like them more that way…
Eeek! How did I miss National Pancake Day? I failed to acknowledge one of my favorites foods’ existence! Gah…Oh well, better late than never, right? And now I have a new recipe to try!
These look absolutely scrumptious…I’m a huge fan of *vintage* pancakes. I mean, who isn’t? 😉
Goodness gracious! those are some good lookin pancakes!! thanks for the recipe!!!!!! 😀 fab photos too!
I adore pumpkin pancakes – I’m so glad that the season’s changed and I can eat them more of the time… 🙂
So sad that I missed national pancake day! oh well, I could make any day a pancake day 😉 Id’ eat these Pumpkin Bread Pudding Pancakes in a heartbeat!
These look amazing.
Pumpkin pancakes are hands down my all time favorite! These sound delicious! I love the weather this time of year, but I hate losing light for photos.
I knew you’d come up with something stellar for Pancake Day!
You always have great pics so never worry about that 😉
Oh and I love that plate! Is it a TJMaxx, Target or Pier 1 find? Or somewhere else?
Keep enjoying that pumpkin and coming up with the goods – you need to work on some pumpkin cinnamon rolls or pumpkin cake pops 😀
Have a great day!
Thank you Missy! And hello, thank you for telling me about National Pancake Day…I wouldn’t have had a clue otherwise!
Ahhh, pumpkin cinnamon rolls…do you know how many freakin’ bookmarks I have for those?! It’s crazy!
Hmm, I’ve had the plate for a while now…I think I got it at Marshall’s.
What about stuff ’em AND top ’em? 🙂
Alright, miss Heather. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to continue reading your blog if you keep posting all of these pumpkin recipes knowing full well that I can’t find any 😉 Oh, who am I kidding? I could never stop reading your blog! I’m kind of sort of obsessed with you and that far surpasses my love for pumpkin! You bet your bottom dollar though as soon as I find it, I’m whipping these puppies up! **bookmarked**
Aww, Jenny! *bats eyes* Please don’t leave me! I luvvvvvvvvvv you! 😉
Happy Pancake Day! These look fab! 🙂
They are so FLUFFY im gonna DIE!!!!! Haha! Look so good!
I want that maple syrup, I have the plain one like that form target, but not cinnamon infused?!! I guess I am not cool enough ; )
Haha! I totally cracked up at your comment!
Eh, the syrup is good, but not worth buying again. It’s pure maple syrup, but it’s thinner and lighter than the kind I normally buy from Trader Joe’s (which is still my all time fave)
Yum! Those pancakes look delicous!
I had no idea it was national pancake day! 😀
I will make these pancakes, they look amazing. And I’ll also meet you anytime at South Street since I LIVE in Nashville! I love some bread pudding!
Oh wow! Really? That’s awesome! So good to find fellow middle Tennesseans in blogworld. We’ll definitely have to meet up sometime!
Um, I kid you not, I made the exact same thing yesterday morning. Are we sharing the same brain wave??
Haha! I just saw your post and they look amazing!!
Yum! My arsenal of pumpkin recipes continues to grow! Good thing I finally found Libby’s at the grocery store 🙂
My thoughts EXACTLY! 😉
I have an apple pancake recipe my mom and dad used that I absolutely love. I don’t make them often as they are not very healthy and use ALOT of butter. Paula Deen would be proud! Also, it takes awhile to peel and cut the apples. I also like IHOP pancakes.
I am adding this to my list of recipes to try.
Good ol’ Paula Deen…it’s a wonder that lady isn’t 800 pounds! Haha!
OMG. this looooks soo good! i need to try it!
These look completely fabulous! Nicely done!
Miss pancake queen, you have the ability to master any and every possible pancake creation 🙂 Wish you were here to whip me up a batch…
You’d be proud however: I made my very own batch of pumpkin fall pancakes without completely messing um’ up!
I saw them! And they looked fantastic! Great job!
oh my goodness all these pumpkin recipes are making me drool!
Sorry for being late to the pancake party but wow, that looks so amazing and filling. I haven’t made my own pancakes in a while since I fail miserably at making them, lol, but the call of pumpkin pancakes is luring me in. And the photos help too 😀
Aww, thanks girl! That means a lot….especially since I gave myself such grief over the pictures not being taken in the right lighting. 🙂
Oh, and you know what…I used to suck at making pancakes! Haha!
wow! These look so good. I have an open can of pumpkin in my fridge right now…fridays breakfast anyone?! thank you!
Thanks! I’ve been chomping at the bit to make it to the weekend so I can make them again! Hope you like them!
