In a medium bowl whisk together 1 1/2 cups of milk…

1 cup of pumpkin puree…

Q. Melissa, did you roast your own pumpkin and then puree it?

A. Absolutely not. This puree came out of a can and it was perfect, but if your into the whole completely made from scratch thing go for it!

1 egg…

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil…

And 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.

Whisk, whisk, whisk!

In another bowl mix together 2 cups of all purpose flour…

4 tablespoons of lightly packed brown sugar…

2 teaspoons of baking powder…

1 teaspoon of baking soda…

1/2 teaspoon of salt…

1 teaspoon of ground allspice…

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon…

Don’t be like me and just assume you have a never ending supply of ground cinnamon on hand. Oops!

And 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg!

Slowly whisk together your dry ingredients with your wet ingredients.

Heat up your griddle or skillet and lightly oil it.

I use Pam, my sister-in-law uses butter, and my mom will use a touch of vegetable oil. Take your pick, they all work well!

Pour, flip and repeat until all of your batter is gone.


Real maple syrup…

The perfect pumpkin-y bite!

    If you want to try real pumpkin, I would suggest butternut squash instead. It’s way easier to peel and is much less stringy than pumpkin. It purees up like “budda” and has a milder flavor, but still gives that yummy pumpkin taste.
    Butternut squash pie? Oh My Word!

    all squared up
