While we're stuck here in the deep freeze of January, I've been throwing together different recipes to lift our spirits and fill our stomachs. These pancakes are so good, you'd swear it was still fall. I took this from the All Recipes website.
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of ground allspice
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 cups of milk (dairy or soy)
1 cup of pumpkin puree (cooked pumpkin or canned)
1 egg or the equiv of egg substitute
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of vinegar
In one bowl mix the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. In another combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with maple syrup.
