Pumpkin Pancakes

There is nothing that says fall like baking with pumpkin. I think we have established that pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors ever! I have actual cravings or addictions to it. Maybe there is a group for that?? I could probably be nominated president over PLA pumpkin lovers anonymous! But seriously you need to try this recipe out it is so yummy and not overly sweet ...speaking of sweet, we have a SWEEEEET contest going on now on our facebook page from Tiny Trends Boutique go check it out the rules are on the page and make sure you check out Tiny Trends Boutique on fb while you are there.

1 1/2 cups milk

1 cup pumpkin puree

1 egg

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 tablespoons vinegar

2 cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground allspice

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon salt


In a bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt in a separate bowl. Stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle brown on both sides and serve hot. It can be served with maple syrup, buttermilk syrup or whip cream (like pumpkin pie YUM).
