Pumpkin Pancakes

I shared with you yesterday how I roasted 3 pumpkins last weekend. Coincidentally  I woke up the next morning craving pancakes. I've never made pancakes from scratch, but figured I could do it... After some recipe searching, I found this recipe for pumpkin pancakes and knew it would be perfect. I made the whole batch for Wesley and I, knowing there would be leftovers for days. Perfection!
Note: I'm terrible at flipping pancakes. We don't have a griddle so I battle the sides of the frying pan to flip. It's terrible. This recipe is just magical enough to make me want a griddle! 

1 1/2 cups of milk (we didn't have milk so I watered down cream)
1 cup of pumpkin puree
1 egg (which is good because we only had 1...)
2 tablespoons of oil
2 cups of all purpose flour
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon kosher salt

In a marge bowl, mix together the first four (wet) ingredients. In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients.

Gently stir in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir together until just combined.

Greased a hot pan or griddle with butter or oil. Pour about 1/4 cup of pancake batter on the hot griddle. Cook pancakes until brown on both sides.
No bib needed - we let our kid get messy!
These pancakes will be light, fluffy, and delicious. They might be some of the best pancakes I've ever had. I LOVE pancakes and am surprised that I've never made them from scratch before. They were so easy and incredibly delicious. Wesley and I ate on them for 4 days straight!

  1. Yum! That's really similar to my pancake recipe. Maybe I'll have to try them with pumpkin sometime! I use my cast iron skillet, so I know what you mean about battling the sides. I just make them smaller and it works a little better.

    Cute Wesley!
