Pumpkin pecan pancakes!


We harvested 5 pumpkins from our garden this year. I absolutely loved having them around the house, but come December I decided that we needed to do something else with them because pumpkins really aren’t a Christmas decoration. So, I’m in the process of cutting them all up (I started with this one because it produced a LOT of pumpkin) and cooking with it, which means finding creative pumpkin recipes to use!

These pumpkin pancakes were delicious and very filling!

1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup pureed or canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans

My local, organic, fresh pumpkin came out much less fake-orange looking than canned pumpkin!

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk wet ingredients; eggs, milk, pumpkin and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in pecans.
Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle. Flip pancakes when bubbles form on top of pancakes. Cook until second side is golden brown.
Serve with butter and syrup!
