Pumpkin Pancakes


You can't get pumpkin? This looks like a GREAT recipe where you can substitute the 3/4 cup of pumpkin for bananas, zuchini...lots of healthy choices!

Prep: 15 minutes
Bake: 2 to 4 minutes

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1-3/4 cups milk
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup cooking oil
Directions
1. In a large bowl combine flour and other dry ingredients. In a second bowl combine eggs and remaining ingredients. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until slightly lumpy.
2. Heat a lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat. For each pancake pour 14 cup batter onto griddle. Cook until golden; turn when tops are bubbly and edges are slightly dry (1 to 2 minutes per side). Makes about 16 pancakes.
3. Test Kitchen Tip: For some extra spice, add 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon to the flour mixture.
