Pumpkin Pancake



Everyday there is a struggle for me to select the dish which is to be cooked. As usual today also thinking the same what to cook for breakfast – Opened my fridge and found Pumpkin. So planned to prepare breakfast with pumpkin as a main ingredient and finally decided to prepare pumpkin pan cake.

Pumpkin Pancake

Pumpkin Pancake


  • Pumpkin puree – 6 tbsp
  • Wheat – 1 ½ cup
  • Baking powder – 2 tsp
  • Salt – ½ tsp
  • Sugar – 3 tbsp
  • Cinnamon powder – ½ tsp
  • Clove powder – ¼ tsp
  • Ginger powder – ½ tsp
  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Butter (melted) – 2 tbsp


  • For Pumpkin puree: Finely chop the pumpkins to pieces and boil them till they are tender. Drain the water and let the pumpkin cool. Grind to smooth paste.
  • In a bowl, take all the dry ingredients and mix them together.
  • Now pour in all the liquid ingredients to the bowl and mix them with hands. Be sure that lumps are formed. Add more milk if the batter is thick.
  • Heat oil / Butter in a tawa. Scoop the batter with the spoon and drizzle oil/butter to the sides and swap the sides to get cooked.
  • Keep in medium flame, so that it won’t get burned.

Serve hot with Jaggery dip or butter. This goes out well for breakfast or snack.
