Pumpkin Pancakes

Following our wedding in July of 06, our first stop on our honeymoon was a wonderful Bed and Breakfast in Waco. We enjoyed the Pumpkin Pancakes at breakfast so much that I asked for the recipe from the friendly lady who ran the place. I decided to make them a tradition in our new family and want to make them each Christmas Eve Breakfast (started last Christmas). While it's only September, Fall is fast upon us and pumpkin-tasting anything is pretty fun. Enjoy!

PUMPKIN PANCAKES

2 cups flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 and 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cooked pumpkin (I think I just used can pumpkin and it was great)
1 large egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

In large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In small bowl, combine milk, pumpkin, egg and oil. Stir liquid mixture into flour mixture until dry ingredients are moistened. Batter will be thick. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle; using a spatula, spread the batter into a 4 inch circle before mixture sets. Cook until surface appears dry. Turn; cook another 2-3 minutes.

Mmmmm! I'll be trying those soon. It's already very chilly here. You can see your breath in the evening. It feels like November in Texas. So odd. But warm, spiced foods sound so yummy. Thanks for the recipe!
