I must be in the fall mood because I have been craving fall flavors like apple butter and pumpkin. I think that you can enjoy these flavors any time of the year, but it is extra special at the right season.
Two years ago we had a great harvest of pumpkins. I don’t remember the exact count, but we ended up with the equivalent of 60 cans of pureed pumpkin. I have found some great recipes using my pumpkin. I love this Pumpkin Swirl Bread recipe from my friends’ blog. I also have tried pumpkin risotto which is great. Here is my favorite recipe using pumpkin.
2 cups all purpose flour
3 Tbsp packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cup milk
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup cooking oil
1. Combine flour and other dry ingredients. In second bowl combine eggs and remaining ingredients. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix until mixture is just a bit lumpy.
2. Heat frying pan until water dances or sizzles. Flip once the sides lift off the pan and bubbles form and stay.
I really enjoy these both hot or cold. I usually make 3 small pancakes for a snack at work. It is even quick enough to make before leaving for work. And there is barely any sugar in it, but it’s sweet enough if you have a sweet tooth. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
