First off, a reminder that the first monthly Pottery Barn/Ballard Designs/Restoration Hardware Knock-Off Party is this Friday. I guess that means I’d better get started on something! I hope some of you will be able to link up. (This button is as yet without code, but I hope to have that fixed by Friday.)
Now, a yummy fall recipe. We had these pumpkin pancakes from allrecipes for supper Saturday. They were a lovely golden color, and tasted reminiscent of pumpkin pie. I tweaked it based on some of the reviews to the following:
- 2 cups whole white wheat flour
- 4 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 2-3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 2 eggs
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar.
- Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, spices, and salt.
- Add about 1/2 of the milk mixture to the dry mixture and combine; let stand until the dry ingredients are absorbed.
- Add the rest of the milk mixture; combine.
- Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot. Will take a little longer than regular pancakes to cook.
I served the pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup, again with a few changes.
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup water
- Stir together the white sugar, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir in vanilla extract and water. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring often. Continue to boil and stir until mixture thickens to syrup consistency. Remove from heat; cool 10 minutes before serving.
My changes: I used 1 cup of sucanat rather than 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. I only used 1 Tbsp of flour, but it was still a little thick and I think I’d leave it out altogether next time.
The whole family enjoyed this treat! (You are correct if you think that is a paper plate; the dishwasher was full…don’t judge!)
