Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Makes about 12 pancakes
  • 1 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Butter, for cooking
  • Maple syrup, for serving (optional)

In a large bowl, mix milk, pumpkin, egg and vegetable oil together.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing well. Stir until combined.

Heat griddle or pan over medium heat. Add a teaspoon of butter to the pan and allow to melt. 

Pour 2 tablespoons of batter in a small circle onto the griddle. Continue making pancakes, making sure pancakes are not touching. Cook on the first side until bubbles form on the top. Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until golden brown, adding more butter, if necessary, to keep the pan moist. Repeat until all the batter is gone. 

Let cooked pancakes rest on a heat proof plate in a 200 degree F oven until ready to serve.
