Pumpkin Pancakes

These are becoming a tradition in our home at this time of year. I made them this morning and the girls loved them (and they tend to be pretty picky)- both Kate and Taylor had seconds. Lauren even got in on the action and ate an entire one all by herself! I'm going to include a recipe for homemade syrup as well, which is a must! I also think these would taste great with some fresh whipped cream and bananas...

Pumpkin Pancakes

2 cups flour (can use 1 c. white/1 c. wheat)
3 Tbs. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. milk (add more for desired consistency)
1 1/3 c. pumpkin puree
2 eggs
2 Tbs. vegetable oil

Mix dry ingredients. In separate bowl, mix wet ingredients. Combine both just until combined together. Add more milk to desired consistency (I added about 1/2-3/4 cup additional, but I like thin pancakes). Heat and grease a griddle over medium-high heat. Pour batter onto griddle, brown on both sides, and serve hot. You might need to use a ladle to smooth out the center of each pancake as you drop batter on the griddle, so the pancakes cook evenly. These pancakes are very hearty.

Homemade Syrup:
1 cup water
2 cups white sugar
1/2 tsp. butter flavor
1/2 tsp. maple flavoring

Bring water to a boil. Add remaining ingredients and stir until sugar is dissolved. Enjoy! You must try this...once you go homemade, you will never go back!

Dave insisted on homemade when we got married, and we've never gone back. It's the best. Those pancakes look good, but I think I'd have to make the whole recipe for myself. My husband and kids aren't too crazy about pumpkin.
