Pumpkin Pancakes

I have been taking the girls to the farmer's market on Tuesdays after I pick M up from school. It is a pretty small market with only a half a dozen or so booths...but the girls like to wander around and they usually want to buy something...and hey if it gets them interested in vegetables I am all for it.

A couple of weeks ago we picked up these cute little pumpkins for the girls to draw faces on. Closer to Halloween we will carve them... or possibly make a cool scare crow for the porch. I also plan on picking up a few cooking pumpkins and try my hand at making some pumpkin puree from scratch... I will be sure to document my experience of course... but until then I thought I would start thinking about the upcoming holiday season by posting a pumpkin recipe.

When I do get around to making pumpkin puree here is the perfect recipe:

Pumpkin Pancakes

I love pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie …so why not pumpkin pancakes… These taste great with a little extra cinnamon and you can even toss in a bit of ground cloves. Serve with real maple syrup…not the sugary fake stuff.

2 cups flour
2 T. granulated sugar
4 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
4 eggs, separated
1 C. pumpkin puree
1 1/2 C. milk
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter

Sift together dry ingredients. Combine milk, egg yolks, butter, and pumpkin puree. Stir into dry ingredients until just blended. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter. Pour onto hot, oiled griddle, about 1/4 cup at a time. Cook until tops bubble and turn and cook other side.

  1. Pumpkin pancakes sound really good! Going to have to try this one. I also puree pumpkin and squash, freeze it, then use it in recipes throughout the winter. I sneak it into a lot of things and the kids don't even know it. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. @Dawn... I make a vegetarian "chili" that has pumpkin in it... it adds a wonderful thick texture. Maybe I'll post it next week.

  3. This time of year I'm lovin' me just about anything made with pumpkins and pumpkin spices. Thanks so much for dropping by my blog. Cool that you sew your own costumes. My mother did that for my brother and me. We've found some really nice costumes (used only once... and probably quite expensive when new) at local kid's consignment shop. Have a wonderful weekend.
