Pumpkin Pancakes are a delicious fall treat. Cinnamon and nutmeg combine to make these pancakes taste delicious and your home smell wonderful!
Pumpkin season is here!
It is here at our house. I planned ahead last year. We bought A LOT of canned pumpkin last year and HAPPEN to have some left. We enjoy it so much, we didn't want to be without during the year. Sure, you can still get it in the store in August, but not at ALDI. And, of course, ALDI has great canned pumpkin prices. Why pay more, ya know?
Anytime, A.N.Y.T.I.M.E I put something pumpkin in front of my husband, I immediately get a "Oh, yum". The other night as he was walking through our kitchen on the way downstairs I got the typical question, "What's for supper?". (Keep in mind he didn't stop walking.) I answered with "pumpkin pancakes". He paused slightly and said, "oh, yum".
Maybe he would enjoy a pumpkin, spinach, asparagus, hummus bake. Maybe not. ;-)
When you make these pancakes, you house will smell like pumpkin and cinnamon. I mean really, how can you go wrong? If you are really wanting a treat, you can throw chocolate chips into the batter.
Mom of the year award, right there.
Don't let all the ingredients in these pancakes scare you. They come together as easily as regular pancakes. The only thing you need to watch for is that they are thicker than normal pancakes. Make sure you spread the batter on the griddle otherwise:
Not circle shape pancakes, does it really matter, please tell me it doesn't, my family didn't care, maybe you will be a better circle pancake maker than I am.
