This is a brand spanking new recipe in our house! It came about after I made some Pumpkin Muffins for our Pantry Challenge week. I was trying to use up some of the frozen pumpkins I had in the freezer. My 3-year-old fell in love with them and he insisted that on Thursday, Pancake day, we needed Pumpkin Pancakes.
He was up bright and early Thursday morning to help Momma. We made our basic Pancake recipe and then added the pumpkin. Added a little spice and it needed to be sweetened so he suggested some honey. (Yesterday was Winnie the Pooh day and we know what he loves to eat.) Below is the recipe that we came up and they were delicious!
Pumpkin Honey Pancakes
- Pancakes recipe
- 2 c. cooked pumpkin
- 1/4 -1/2 c honey or sugar
- 2 t pumpkin pie spice
- whipped cream
- caramel sauce
- chopped nuts
- powdered sugar
- chocolate chips
- your favorite toppings
Preheat your griddle to 350.
Mix up your basic pancake mix. Stir in the cooked pumpkin, spice, and honey or sugar. Stir just until combined. (You could also add some chocolate chips or chopped nuts at this point.)
Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle. Flip when the top is bubbly. Don’t mash down! Cook just until the other side is browned.
Serve hot! Add your favorite toppings and enjoy.
**These are good just sprinkled with powdered sugar alone.
**I ate mine drizzled with caramel sauce, a squirt of whipped cream, and sprinkled with chopped pecans. These were ‘leftovers’ from previous desserts so I was still working within the Pantry Challenge and cleaning out the fridge!
I haven’t tried this for waffles but I think it would work fine as long as you spray the iron really well.
