Breakfast for dinner is a big hit in our house. We love to have pancakes, french toast, eggs, etc. Since I'm in the middle of my pumpkin frenzy, I decided recently to perfect my pumpkin pancake recipe. These are soooooo good - the result is a light & fluffy texture, with just a hint of pumpkin, and the cinnamon chips add a delicious element. We drizzled a little maple syrup on top, but they're just as tasty on their own.
Puffy Pumpkin Pancakes
1 cup milk
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 c. Hershey's cinnamon chips
In a bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and salt, stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine. Fold in cinnamon chips.
Heat a nonstick griddle over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake (batter should be thick - you'll want to spread it out into shape desired). Flip when surface is covered in bubbles and edges are dry.
This recipe made (for us): 3 large, 3 medium and 6 mini pancakes :)
