Perfectly Pumpkin Pancakes

I love pumpkin. The more the better! I will eat it any time of the day or year!

I also love pancakes!

Perfectly Pumpkin Pancakes

As soon as I saw this recipe for Pumpkin Pancakes in the Gooseberry Patch cookbook Hometown Harvest. I knew I had to make them!

My little guy isn’t picky so I knew he would also be a fan!

This recipes comes together in just a couple minutes.

The recipe said the pancakes were very thick and to make sure the centers were done. I decided to add a little extra milk to make the batter a little thinner. It allowed the pancakes to cook quicker.

This recipe said it made 8 to 10 pancakes but I found with the extra liquid the recipe made a lot more. I tossed them in the freezer and have been pulling them out every time I need a pumpkin fix!

The recipe would be perfect for any fall morning and would make the prefect treat for Thanksgiving morning!

I am such a fan of pumpkin that I decided to add pumpkin butter to the top of the pancakes! One of the best ideas I have had!

So yummy!

  4. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot buttered griddle over medium heat.
  5. When edges are golden, turn and cook other side.

    I will have to try these. Do you use soft white wheat or hard white wheat? I grind my own wheat so I could do either one.
