Pumpkin Pancakes

Tired of the ordinary lunch fare, last week I was inspired to mix up a delicious batch of pumpkin pancakes and honey for lunch. They were delicious. (The kiddos thought they were having dessert.)
You can use canned pumpkin or quash from your garden or the store bought kind.
Here's the recipe:

1 c. flour
1 1/2 c wheat flour
1/4 c. sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 c. milk
1 1/4 c. canned pumpkin
1/4 c. oil
2 eggs

Beat the liquid ingredients together, then slowly stir in the dry ones. Cook the batter in your preferred size on a medium hot griddle. Serve with butter and raw honey. Yum!

Edited to Add:
Many, many sincere apologies (hanging head) for leaving out the milk in the ingredients list above. I am so sorry! I promise that with the milk - they are divine!

Just wanted to say that I love you new template. I like the ones that blogspot provides but I'd love to import a new one - I'm learning... Any advice for me? How did you learn?

Sounds delicious! I will have to try this one soon. I often do "breakfast" for lunch or dinner. Scrabbled eggs and toast for lunch is common in our house, and tonight, we are having French toast :-)

Karen, the new header is one I put together using photoshop after seeing a similar setup for sale for much, much more than is reasonable to pay for a graphic.
However, when I googled "free blog header" in google images, a lot of nice ones came up that may interest you.
Hope ya'll like the pancakes! They're delicious!

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm! I just happen to have some extra pumpkin in the fridge that needs to be used up...guess I'll have to give it a try. ;)

Hannah - I tried this, but it turned out more like a thick dough than batter? Is this right?

Me said...

Hi Carmine, my batter was thick, but not like dough. When making pancakes, I've found I can vary the thickness or thinness of the batter by adding or subtracting a bit of the milk.
Hope they turn out well!

Hi Hannah,

I found the same thing when I made the pancakes this morning. I even kept out some of the flour and added in milk. Hmmm...? The flavor was really good, however, and I added in white and milk chocolate chips.

Hey!! I was just trying these and they weren't working right... I think the milk is what's missing from the recipe.... I'll add some! :)

I made these last night for "Breakfast for Dinner" with a group of friends. They were yummy! One friend had me list the ingredients before she finally decided the cloves are what really make them great! They also had some applesauce in them, since I had frozen pre-measured pumpkin & applesauce together for a second batch of pumpking-maple granola that I decided after the first batch I didn't like.

Thanks for sharing the recipe!!
