My mother in law makes pumpkin pancakes for the holidays almost every year. They are really good and the kids all love them. She uses pancake mix, making the pancakes the way the box says. Then she adds a little all spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. She also adds in about a half of a can of pumpkin for about 8-10 pancakes. She says you get to know the color they should be after making them as long as she has. So I decided to go on a hunt for a completely homemade recipe. After searching many recipes, this is my favorite. I got this recipe from the Martha Stewart website. Super easy and super tasty, enjoy!
Whisk 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour; 2 tablespoons sugar; 2 teaspoons baking powder; 1/2 teaspoon each cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt; 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg; and a pinch of ground cloves. In a separate bowl, stir together 1 cup milk, 6 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and 1 egg; fold mixture into dry ingredients. Melt some butter in a skillet over medium heat; pour in 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Cook pancakes about 3 minutes per side; serve with butter and syrup. Makes 8 to 10.
