I've never been a fan of pumpkin anything, but my kids sure are so this time of year I find myself making lots of pumpkin pies! I decided to broaden my horizons and find a pancake recipe that incorporated canned pumpkin.
Around our house anything that saves us money is always a good idea so I normally have a big container full of DIY Bisquick (AKA all purpose mix) ready to go. I wanted to use my pre-made mix as my base for the pumpkin spice pancakes, so it was just a matter of adding the pumpkin & spices. You can find the recipe for the DIY Biquick here.
Just in case the ingredients/directions are too hard to read from the image above, here they are again.
- 2 cups DIY Bisquick mix
- 1 TBSP. brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. ginger
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 small pinch of clove
- 1 1/4 c milk
- 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 egg
Tip: Don't toss your leftover canned pumpkin. I was able to freeze 5 individual bags that each contained a 1/3 cup of canned pumpkin for the next time I want to make these.
- Preheat griddle to 350 degrees.
- Combine all ingredients until just mixed; don't over stir.
- Cook both sides until golden brown.
- Serve with butter and warm maple syrup. Garnish with whipped cream or pecans.
Our kids devoured these! Thanks for stopping by and hope you try these out -- they are delish!
