Pumpkin Pancakes

It recently occurred to me that living in the Eastern time zone, working Central hours, I have the perfect opportunity to cook breakfast each morning.  Others might say, get a workout in, but that's not how I think :)  Still on a pumpkin kick, this morning I tried a pumpkin pancakes recipe from Taste of Home that was delicious!

I'm still detesting my electric stove.  Unfortunately, gas is uncommon down here, so there's not much hope of a gas stove in our next place either.  I found that a fine dusting of powdered sugar did a great job of hiding the uneven browning from the stupid electric coil. 

I also added some toasted walnuts, which I'd like to try incorporating into the batter next time.  I recently had a Belgian waffle at a restaurant, with pecans baked in and it was so good!

Pumpkin Pancakes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients (10 small pancakes)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, then add milk, pumpkin and oil, whisking until smooth. Whisk into dry ingredients, just until moistened.
  • Grease griddle and heat over medium heat. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto the hot griddle. Turn when bubbles start forming on top of pancakes. Cook until second side is golden brown.

  1. The start of everything "pumpkin"! I LOVE fall! Super jealous of your east coast living with a central time zone job--I'd love more time in the morning :)

  2. I like walnuts in my pancakes too. Pecans in a Belgian waffle sounds very southern and delicious! I would definitely love more time in the morning, but I would use it to hit the gym. :)

  3. You know, Trader Joe's has a pumpkin pancake mix... Just teasing, great job making this from scratch--you never know if "pumpkin" anything has real pumpkin anymore!
