A Taste of Fall

Contrary to what the song says, fall is the most wonderful time of the year! Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin scented candles make for happy taste buds and noses. Not to be left out are pumpkin pancakes. They're the perfect brunch menu after staying up until 2am watching Wives and Daughters. Or so I've heard... If you try them out, let me know how it goes!

Speaking of pumpkins, a trip to Bishop's Pumpkin Farm provided views of pumpkins as far as the eye can see!

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar

In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt, stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
