Pumpkin Spice Pancakes!
PUMPKIN SPICE PANCAKES
You'll use a moderately hot griddle or pan.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups milk (more if needed)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin)
2 tablespoons melted butter
Chopped walnuts for garnish
Lightly coat pan or griddle with vegetable oil or melted butter before heating.
Whisk dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, salt, and cinnamon).
To the dry ingredients, add eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, and melted butter. Mix together all at once, but just until combined. Lumps are fine. If batter seems a little to thick, you can thin it a bit with more milk.
Let mixture sit while griddle or pan heats up.
Drop pancake batter by 1/4 cup-fulls onto hot griddle or pan. I used a levered ice cream scoop for consistent sizing, and smoothed each pancake into a nice round shape with the scoop, but you don't have to do this. I'm just a little OCD about perfect pancakes!
Cook until you see bubbles around the edges, the edges seem dry, and the pancake starts to brown on the bottom. Flip over and cook the other side until it begins to brown.
Serve with warmed maple syrup and a sprinkling of chopped walnuts.
They stack up beautifully!
