Nothing screams fall like pumpkin!!! We have been enjoying these pancakes all season long! I love weekend mornings, when my family gathers around the table laughing, just happy to be home together. My grandpa always says, "There's nothing better then good company!" I try to make sure there is something extra yummy to entice, maybe even bribe, everyone to the table with. These pancakes have become one of our favs! They are so yummy! A little whole-wheat flour, some pumpkin pie spice, and rich brown sugar go a long way in creating a wonderful breakfast you and your family are sure to love. Just wait until we talk syrup!
*Recipe by Crazy Daisy
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
*Note - If you prefer to use only all-purpose flour, leave the whole wheat flour out, and add an additional cup of all-purpose flour.
Heat a griddle sprayed with cooking spray, over medium low heat.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together, flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Add milk, pumpkin, egg, oil, and vinegar. Stir until combined.
Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto the griddle. Gently spread a little. Brown on each side. Serve hot with your favorite syrup.
Now, for the syrup! Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with plain old maple, but if you want to kick things up a notch you have to try one of these.
This amazing syrup takes a little longer to make (only about 12-15 minutes), so I make it first and keep it warm on the stove top until the pancakes are ready to eat. My family adores this caramel wonder, and I am sure you will to!
It's all in the name! This syrup takes but a few minutes to prepare and is absolutely heavenly! You won't be disappointed with this choice either.
I dare you to try either of these, or even both - you may just never go back to plain maple again!!! And when you do, let me know what you think!
Why do I love sharing recipes? With this thought in mind....
