You’re probably thinking that “perfect” pancakes is a pretty bold claim huh? I have a good feeling that you are going to agree after trying this recipe. Reece declared these pancakes the best he has ever had – pretty amazing for a 5 year old to say – he’s had a lot of pancakes in his time!
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c wheat flour
3/4 c brown sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 c canned pumpkin (pure pumpkin)
1 c milk
1/4 c applesauce (or vegetable oil)
1 tsp vanilla
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. I know there is a lot of ingredients but it is SO worth it! Once all those spices get in the bowl just take a sniff and smile. Smells like pumpkin pie! (You can use more or less wheat flour depending on your preference.)
Add remaining ingredients and mix until just blended. Do not over mix – just until blended. I use applesauce but you can sub in vegetable oil if you prefer.
Pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto a lightly butter skillet. Cook over medium heat until pancakes are lightly browned on the bottom. Turn and cook until done.
