Pumpkin Ricotta Pancakes with Cranberry Syrup


I bet you didn’t think it could get any better than good old pumpkin pancakes. How about pumpkin ricotta pancakes with some cranberry maple syrup to top it off? Thanksgiving heaven, wouldn’t you say? This is fair warning: you might want to get yourself some tissues. There’s going to be some drool involved.


I love pancakes. Any flavor suits my fancy. Blueberry corn and Speculoos Spiced are favorites, but gimme some cheese and I call ’em latkes. These old cheese latkes with raspberry sauce were my idea of a deconstructed donut. This year, I decided to get into the Thanksgivukkah spirit with some pumpkin flavored pancakes with a generous dose of ricotta and autumn spices. Whip ’em up on Chanukah or Thanksgiving morning – better yet – lunch, or even dinner (I am not beyond eating pancakes for dinner)…


I’m gonna go all Pioneer-Woman on you and throw in some extra photos for your drooling pleasure. I don’t know what was better, getting to eat these, or photographing them. They almost look too good to eat, don’t they?


Go ahead, dig in. These babies won’t last long…


Now open up WIDE, there’s a mouthful of flavor on that fork…


Be generous. Slather on that buttery goodness…

Nothing goes together quite like pumpkin and cranberries – two fall favorites that complement each other like yin and yang. There’s also no better topping for pancakes than pure sweet maple syrup. Why not combine the ¬†two to make cranberry maple syrup over pumpkinlicious pancakes – a perfect pairing for the autumn holidays!

  1. Oh my, these look dangerously amazing!!! Your step-by-step tempting made me almost eat those photographs – delicious is not the word!

  2. These were absolutely delicious, though it did take time to pull it all together. (probably because all my kids were home:) ) the cranberry sauce was yummy too! i did cut down on the sugar and maple syrup a bit, and the pancakes were not sweet on their own, which was perfect! thanks for sharing!

  3. I tried these, flavor was good but I had to add almost 1/2 cup of milk to thin the batter so they could pour. Even then they were way too heavy, need to go back to the lab with this recipe, they need some baking soda or something else to lighten them up. Very disappointing!

    1. I’m sorry you didn’t like them! Perhaps you were expecting more of a traditional pancake, but these are heavier cheese pancakes so they aren’t meant to be fluffy like you are used to.
