Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

 All the flavors of Fall!

Last night's "Breakfast for Dinner!"
Do you ever have "breakfast for dinner"?  Well, last night was one of those nights, and since I had some leftover pumpkin puree in the fridge, I thought it would be a good night to make some pancakes.  It turned out to be a great idea!  These Pumpkin Spice Pancakes were such a hit with the family!

Since it was a late dinner, I didn't think to make the Maple Butter Syrup, but I've had it before and it's the "icing on the cake".  Uh...PAN-cake, that is!

This recipe feeds a crowd and will be a perfect breakfast for your holiday company.  It'll make your family feel pretty special too!

Maple Butter Syrup with Pecans

1 cup Maple syrup
1 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

In 1-quart saucepan, heat syrup and butter until butter is melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in pecans (if desired).

Pumpkin Pancakes

2 cups flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Dash of ginger
Dash of cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
1 3/4 cup milk
1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375'F.  Grease with shortening or vegetable oil, if necessary.

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and salt; stir to blend.  (You can substitute 1-2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.)

Place milk, pumpkin puree, eggs and oil in a separate bowl and whisk together well.  Pour into the flour mixture and stir until moistened.

For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot (but not too hot) griddle.  (You want the inside to cook without burning the outside.)

Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook other sides until golden brown.

Serve with warm Maple Butter Syrup, and add chopped pecans (or not).  Either way it's extremely delicious!  :)
