Gingerbread Pumpkin Pancakes

I wanted to repost this recipe, because it makes for such a delicious autumn breakfast.

This is one of our favorite recipes. We got it from Trader Joe's on a day that they were sampling these and they are so good! They make a great breakfast, but they are also good if you make extras and put them in the fridge and then pop them in the toaster for a snack. It makes about 22ish thick, hearty pancakes, but you can easily halve the recipe. Enjoy!

Beat together 2/3 cup brown sugar and 4 eggs
Add 1 cup canned pumpkin
1 1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup butter, melted
Mix together.
Then add 3 cups flour
4 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ginger
pinch salt
pinch nutmeg

Cook on your griddle and have a great breakfast!

Those sound really good Michelle. Don't you just love Trader Joe's? I think they have some of the best groceries out there and are so affordable.

Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Just gotta let you know! I had so much batter left after making enough pancakes for us and to take to work that I put the rest in a loaf pan and baked it. It was so good!

Michelle said...

Yes.....it does make a lot. Sometimes we halve the recipe, but I do like having the leftovers to snack on, too. Next time I'll try baking it as a loaf....great idea!

This recipe does sound good. My kids love pancakes so I'll have to try it!

I read your comment about the goat's milk lotion....I know after I posted that I thought my wording sounded wierd! What I meant was it's not an overpowering flowery or fruity smell...just a nice clean smell.. a nice "people" smell. Still sounds wierd, I know. The brand I use is Canus and their website is www.canusgoatsmilk.com. I actually bought mine at a bed-n-breakfast we stayed at, but you could probably get some through the website. It's great stuff!
