One Recipe from Thanksgiving (Pumpkin Pancakes)

Hey all,

This is very loosely based on the pancake recipe for Pancakes in the America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook–except mine’s much much cooler.

  • 4 cups of whole wheat flour (I used Indian Naan flour because it’s what I had and there’s a really nice Indian food shop near CMU).
  • 5 tbs of Sugar (include some brown sugar–it’s nice with the pumpkin)
  • 4 tbs baking powder
  • 3 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 tbs (tablespoons *not* tubs) butter (can be oil, but butter always tastes better)
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 cups of pumpkin
  • 1 tbs pumpkin pie spice

Mix all liquids together and all drys together separately, then mix all. I used a fork but a whisk would work as well.

Notes for cooking in the hotel: I should have brought measuring cups and spoons–thus results with the above recipe will vary as I used coffee cups for cups, dining teaspoons and tablespoons for those measurements rather than more accurate measuring utensils.

Note from those who ate: more spices (maybe ginger or hand grated cinnamon) would be nice.

Bake like pancakes!

I am having tons of fun and will post more later!
