Pumpkin Pancakes

It is pumpkin time and this week I made three pumpkin items with a large can of pumpkin.  Pumpkin pancakes are the kids favorite pancakes especially just cold plain.  They almost taste like you are eating a muffin or cookie but less messy because they are in pancakes form.

My sister showed up one day last fall with a plate of pumpkin pancakes.  She told me I could find the recipe Pumpkin Pancakes-Allrecipe.com.  I have been making them since.

These pancakes are not overwhelming in flavor but have just the perfect amount of spice.  They are a denser pancake but I have add a bit extra baking soda to fluff them up a little more.  I found the original recipe to not cook all the way through sometimes.  I hope your family enjoys this fall treat!

Applesauce Pancakes from scratch

Applesauce Pancakes by scratchSo pancakes usually just do nothing for me.  They usually just feel heavy in my stomach and are a bit sweet with syrup on them.  Rarely do I make them and if I do I want good pancakes by scratch.  When looking for a new recipe to try I came across Mom’s Applesauce Pancakes Recipe – Allrecipes.com.  I found this last year just after I had finished canning about 25 quarts of applesauce.

My kids loved this recipe and enjoy eating them both fresh and cold for snack later in the day.  The smell alone as they cook is like a fresh apple pie in the oven.  A bit of maple syrup is pretty tasty on this apple cinnamon flavored cake.  Unlike the original recipe which can be made with boxed pancake mix, I have altered the recipe to be completely homemade.

Applesauce Pancakes:

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbs butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 1/4 cup milk

Combine flour, salt, sugar, and cinnamon.  Whisk until combined well.

Add in remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.  If the batter is thick for your liking, simply add a bit more milk.

Does it look a little purple?  It is probably because I used blackberry applesauce but regular is great.

Prepare as you would any other pancake batter.  I cook mine on my electric skillet set to 350 degrees or in a pan over medium heat.  Cook pancakes until bubbles form on the cake and flip, continue to cook about 1 minute more.

No More Pancake Mix

Old Fashioned PancakesThis recipe Old Fashion Pancakes-Allrecipes is a great easy recipe.  You can throw it together almost as quick as a pancake mix and tastes twice as good.  Mr.Picky gets a craving for pancakes once in a blue moon, but when he does this is the recipe I go to.  I prefer my grandma’s recipe,pumpkin or applesauce pancakes.  If you would rather have a good plain pancake you can’t go wrong.

The recipe makes verily puffy pancakes, which aren’t quite my style.  If you like them, then by all means.  For those of you who don’t I add about 1/4 cup of water until the batter is the consistency I like.  These pancakes do brown up just perfect.  I use either a cast-iron on medium or for a crowd my electric griddle turned to 350 degrees.

Old Fashion Pancakes:

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbs sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbs butter, melted

Sift or whisk the dry ingredients and make a well in the center.

Add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.  At this point if the batter seems thicker than you like your pancakes, add a bit of water until you reach the desired consistency.

Cook the pancakes over a medium heat 2-3 minutes per side.

Buttermilk Caramel Syrup Recipe

Buttermilk Caramel Syrup

Alongside our waffles this morning instead of the usual maple syrup we tried Buttermilk Caramel Syrup Recipe — Creations by Kara.  It was wonderful, this recipe yields a lot so I would suggest making only half the recipe.  Mr.Picky said he would stick to maple syrup but he did try it.  I would love to serve it in addition to maple syrup at a big brunch.
