Pumpkin pancakes taste like something that would be served on a cool October morning at Hogwarts, prepping the wizards for a busy day of witchcraft---which is to say, they are cinnamony, gingery, pumpkiny and perfectly delicious. Perfect for a prelude to apple-picking or perhaps before carving your jack-o-lantern, these will become a favorite in your house all autumn long. Enjoy!
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- In a bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a separate bowl. Stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot. Makes about 12 medium size pancakes (which is enough in my house to serve one ravenous hubby, one slightly less ravenous me and a bottomless pit toddler).
I think the only person who loves breakfast more than I is beloved Pooh Bear:“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”
