Making pumpkin pancakes for/with your tots is the perfect start to a Happy Halloween!
2 cups flour 2 eggs
Pinch of salt 1¾ cup Buttermilk (or milk)
2 Tbsp Sugar 3 Tbsp melted butter
1 Tbsp baking powder 1/2 cup pureed, cooked pumpkin (or canned)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or add a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon if you don’t have it)
(If you want them to look orange like a pumpkin, you can add food coloring. I added 6 drops yellow and 3 drops red to the batter.)
Mix dry ingredients together first, then mix wet ingredients separately and add to dry ingredients to make batter. A few lumps in the batter are good. If you want them extra fluffy, separate the egg whites from the yolks and beat the whites into fluff then fold in separately from the mixed yolks.
Great with butter and maple sirup, and if you are really indulging, throw in some chopped pecans. HAPPY HALLOWEEN !
