Pumpkin Pancakes with Pumpkin Maple Syrup

Some of you may know that I'm a breakfast-a-holic and a pancake fiend. I have at least 3-4 pancake recipes that I rotate through on a regular basis. I'm all about a good (and healthy) breakfast any day of the week, not just on the weekends. We hardly ever eat cold cereal anymore, much to my husband's chagrin I'm sure. My kids don't complain though. I think they love pancakes almost as much as I do.

A while back I found a can of pumpkin in my pantry. I had bought it last year sometime and still hadn't used it. Seeing it reminded me of fall. I love fall, it's my favorite season. I also love just about anything pumpkin. I have made pumpkin pancakes before and they always turned out gooey and a little unappetizing because of the texture. I wasn't sure you could even make a pumpkin pancake that wasn't gooey. That's until I got this recipe from my sister. The pancakes turn out nice and fluffy and, most importantly, they are not soggy or gooey. The pumpkin maple syrup is wonderful with it as well and just intensifies that pumpkin pie flavor.

I know I'm jumping the gun a little on fall, but when the weather turns, make room for these pancakes in your breakfast rotation. You won't be sorry.

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground allspice
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
2 T vegetable oil
2 T vinegar

In a medium bowl, mix together the buttermilk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. In a separate bow combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Stir dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine. Let batter rest for a few minutes while griddle warms up!

Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Brown on both sides and serve hot with Pumpkin Maple Syrup.
