Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Serving Size: 4 pancakes


  • 3 cup measuring items
  • Four measuring spoons
  • Five medium mixing bowls
  • Three medium mixing spoons
  • One small bowl
  • large frying pan


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely grated carrots
  • 1/4 cup crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
  • Maple syrup, for serving
  • Cream cheese frosting, for serving (optional)


1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla extract.

3. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.

4. Gently fold in the grated carrots, crushed pineapple, and chopped walnuts or pecans (if using).

5. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease it with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.

6. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown.

7. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more butter or cooking spray as needed.

8. Serve the Carrot Cake Pancakes warm with maple syrup drizzled over the top. For an extra indulgence, you can also spread a dollop of cream cheese frosting on each pancake.
