Pumpkin Pancakes

Recipe for Pumpkin Pancakes by Jennifer Spredemann

Since FALL is right around the corner, this recipe from Esther Keim’s cookbook A Taste of Amish Cooking and More caught my eye. I want to try them! What about you?


¼ c. pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1 T. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
½ t. pumpkin pie spice
Pinch of nutmeg

Whisk pumpkin and egg together until smooth. Add in remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth. Fry batches in cast iron skillet. Makes approximately 8-10 pancakes.

I don’t usually care for pancakes (I know, a crime against humanity!) but these actually sound yummy to me. Have you ever tried a pumpkin pancake?
