Pumpkin Pancakes with Bisquick

21 Nov

In recent weeks I’ve been trying to come up with different ways to incorporate pumpkin into recipes and yesterday morning, I made pumpkin pancakes.
They turned out pretty dern good so I thought I’d share.

Normally when I make pancakes or waffles I use Bisquick.  I use to make them more from scratch using flour but somewhere along the line I switched over to Bisquick and since it hasn’t let me down yet, haven’t looked back.

So why pumpkin?  I’m glad you asked!
Aside from the fact that this time of year seems to scream all things spice and pumpkins, how you ever considered how healthy pumpkin actually is?

I figured on the beta-carotene because of the color and guessed it was a low calorie, no fat sort of vegetable but I didn’t realize it was so high in fiber, protein, Zinc, potassium and Vitamins A & C.

I’m definitely going to be making a place in our veg garden next spring to grow pumpkins!

I’m pretty much thinkin I don’t have to tell you how to make pancakes so I’m just gonna provide the recipe I came up with.

Recipe

  • 2 1/3 cups Bisquick
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
  • 2 eggs

I normally use the recipe for pancakes off the side of the Bisquick box but instead of the, 1 1/4 cup milk it calls for, I use just 1 cup.  That extra 1/4 cup seems to make the batter a bit too runny.

These pumpkin pancakes seemed to be a bit more cake-like and fluffy so I lowered the temperature a bit and covered them to help them finish cooking on the inside.
These went over pretty big with Bear Cub and his best friend B.  As a matter of fact, I was told I was to make these again…and SOON!
I think  I’ll try pumpkin bread this weekend.

Want some nutritional info on pumpkins or a few recipes?
