And here’s that delicious pumpkin pancake recipe!
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 to 1 ¼ cups milk
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the softened butter, pumpkin puree and maple syrup. Mix until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking powder. Stir with a whisk until well mixed.
- Make a well in the center of the bowl with the dry ingredients and add the beaten egg and oil. Add 1 cup of milk and start whisking the wet ingredients together, slowly incorporating the dry ingredients from the sides of the bowl until fully combined.
- Add the pumpkin puree and mix well again – adding more milk as necessary to get a thick but pourable batter.
- Heat a flat griddle over medium-low heat and grease well (we use a pastry brush to evenly coat the griddle with canola oil). The griddle is hot enough when a drop of batter immediately sizzles on it.
- Using a ¼ cup measure, ladle the batter onto the hot griddle – this should make about a 4-inch round pancake. Cook the pancake for about 2-3 minutes (until the edges are set), then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
- Serve immediately with a spoonful of the Maple Pumpkin Butter on top.
