These Pumpkin Swirl Pancakes with Pumpkin Butter Topping have to be the best pumpkin pancakes I’ve ever had. Swirled with pumpkin butter, dusted with powdered sugar and then drizzled with more pumpkin butter, they’re the perfect way to start your day!
As I sit here typing this post, I anticipate tonight’s episode of Breaking Bad. In fact, I probably won’t finish this post before I go downstairs to watch the show. This probably sounds a little weird to you because you’re reading this and it’s probably sometime Monday morning or afternoon and tonight’s episode of Breaking Bad is long over with. But right now it’s Sunday evening and there are exactly nine minutes until the next episode airs. If you aren’t familiar with Breaking Bad, well, it’s only one of the best shows on television. The show is in its final season and there are only three episodes left. I can honestly say that I’ve never been so excited to watch an episode of a television show in my life. And I’ve been pretty excited about some of The Walking Dead episodes.
But enough of the TV talk and confusing you with the time of day it is. Let’s talk about pumpkin again. Pumpkin pancakes. Ken likes pancakes. A lot. I don’t mind them. They do taste good. And they are easy to make. But I can take them or leave them. Sometimes I make pancakes for him while making something else for myself. But these Pumpkin Swirl Pancakes are a different story. They are amazing!
The key to what makes them amazing is the pumpkin butter. Have you ever had pumpkin butter? It reminds me of apple butter but with hints of pumpkin. Well, I wouldn’t call them hints. You can definitely taste the pumpkin but it’s a much different taste than pumpkin puree or any of the usual pumpkin flavored treats. I used about 3/4 of a jar of the pumpkin butter to make these pancakes. I used more than I thought I was going to use but that’s ok. I am placing an order to purchase more of this pumpkin butter because it’s so darn good! More recipes to come, teehee! For now, enjoy this recipe.
