Fall is in the air. And you know what that means right? Decadent, Rich and Fragrant meals and desserts, like chili and pumpkin pie. My mouth is watering just a tad. Oh sheesh, I’m getting carried away & here I am trying to lose baby weight. Get a grip! But seriously this is the time of year, when our ovens get a good work out & well us not so much.
I seriously love everything pumpkin related, well except for pumpkin spice coffee. BLEH! And like I mentioned I’m watching what I eat & I’m keeping my distance from pumpkin pie. I figure I’ll go all in around Thanksgiving. How many days till then?? So instead of totally depriving myself of the yummy goodness of pumpkin tastiness, I decided on whipping up a batch of Easy Peasy Pumpkin Pancakes. Say that five times fast!
I am not kidding that this is one of the easiest recipes for Pumpkin Pancakes. Some may say, I actually cheated since I used a “Complete” pancake mix. Well let’s get to it.
- 2/3 cups milk
- 1 cup complete pancake batter mix
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Combine all your ingredients & mix
- Add butter to a warm skillet, medium flame
- Pour batter into skillet, turn pancakes when small bubbles begin to appear on the edges, cook on other side for about 1 minute
- Serve pancakes with syrup (sprinkle with cinnamon, optional)
- Yields 4-5 pancakes
BAM…the easiest pumpkin pancakes & pretty darn tasty, if I say so myself. After you whip up a batch I hope you’ll forgive my cheating ways.
Have you added pumpkin into any of your dishes?
