Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin pancakes are good any time of the year, but they taste best on cold late autumn days or snowy winter mornings by a warm fireplace. You can make them using canned or fresh pumpkin. Pumpkin pairs very well with spices like ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Dry ingredients:

1 1/2 cups flour

2 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg

1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon

1⁄2 teaspoon ginger

 

 

Wet ingredients:

1 cup milk

1 egg

6 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree

2 tablespoons butter (melted)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Instructions:

Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and spices in a bowl.

In another bowl mix milk, pumpkin puree, egg and melted butter and pour this mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir just enough to combine all ingredients.

Grease a skillet (or a griddle) and heat over medium high heat. Pour in 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.

Cook pancakes about 2-4 minutes per side until brown. Serve with maple syrup and cinnamon on top.
