I am a bit late to the pumpkin party this fall but when you try out all the pumpkin recipes I have lined up for you albeit in Winter... you will forgive me. Hmmmm? Thinking of it, fall in winter is bad.., at least it's not so cold in fall. Besides I had two cans of pumpkin purée I needed to use up or else I would be throwing them out by Jan 2019 because they would be expired.
These Pumpkin Spice pancakes should we're served with cream cheese frosting and maple syrup but you can serve it with anything you want.
How to make Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
It's easy! All you need is some pumpkin purée and pumpkin spice added to your favorite pancake batter and you have yourself a pumpkin spice pancake. You may need to figure out the quantity of pumpkin purée you want in your pancake though. It's that easy trust me.
But since I wanted to make it a pancake worth my time and effort I decided to make it even more amazing. What did I do?
I separated the egg yolk from the whites and whipped the whites to a stiff peak to add to the fluffiness of the pumpkin spice pancakes.
I also added some fresh buttermilk from my homemade butter.
The result: a nicely executed pumpkin spice pancake. Tell me about it.
Substitutions for Pumpkin purée in this Pumpkin Spice Pancake Recipe.
Actually there is no substitute for pumpkin purée in this recipe because it's a Pumpkin based recipe.??
But you can still make a similar pancake with some other fruit substitutes and the pancake will be named after whatever vase yuh choose.
So If you don't have pumpkin purée or you are not much of a pumpkin fan, you can substitute the pumpkin purée with mashed bananas or plantains and you will have banana pancakes or plantain pancakes. Not pumpkin but still delicious ?
