Pumpkin Pancakes

I  am normally a boring breakfast sort of person. Oat bran or toast. Maybe a couple of eggs. Every once in a while I spend a little extra time for something special. Today I just had a taste for pancakes. Since I had some cooked pumpkin in the fridge it seemed natural to make pumpkin pancakes. I topped them with a drizzle of warm maple syrup. So delicious. I am not likely to change my habits about breakfast,  but sometimes you just need to treat yourself to something special.

 

 

Pumpkin Pancakes

2 c. baking mix – like Bisquick or Jiffy Mix – I make my own*
3 T. brown sugar
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1 1/2 c. evaporated milk
1 c. solid pack pumpkin
2 eggs, beaten
2 t. vanilla

Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl and set aside. Whisk together wet ingredients and stir into dry ingredients. Lightly grease a skillet and cook over moderate heat. Use about 1/3 c. of batter per pancake. Turn when edges appear dry. Makes 16.

*Chef Pastry Mix/ Biscuit Mix

8 cups sifted, all-purpose flour
1 c. powdered milk
1 c. powdered buttermilk
¼ c. baking powder
1 T. salt
2 c. shortening or coconut oil*
Sift dry ingredients together 3 times. Cut in shortening or coconut oil  to resemble cornmeal. Keep in an airtight container. Store in a cool dry place and use within six months.

* I use coconut oil and store in the fridge.
