The Perfectly Fluffy Pumpkin Pancake

In an effort to try and use pumpkin in as many recipes as humanly possible before the fall season is over, I give you the perfectly fluffy pumpkin pancake.....YUM!!! 


Not too sweet {not needed with the syrup you'll add}, not too heavy.......just right!

I came up with this out of desperation for pumpkin and a need to feed my family lunch on Sunday. I had several recipes, but each had something I wasn't too sure about so I kinda combined them all and came up with this. They are way better than any I've made in the past. So fluffy.....kinda of like a little dreamy pumpkin cloud that you eat :) {with syrup...lots of syrup}

Perfectly Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes

2 ½ cups all purpose flour {you could sub out half whole wheat pastry flour}
¼ cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
4 Tbsp melted butter
2 eggs
2½ cups low-fat buttermilk

In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, spice, salt and soda. Make a well in the center and add your eggs. Use a fork to break up the eggs and then add the pumpkin, butter and buttermilk. Stir just until combined. There will be lumps....let them be, they are good. Use a little oil to grease a  non stick griddle and heat over medium to medium high heat {I use medium}. Use a 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook about 3 minutes per side. This makes approximately 20 4" pancakes.
