Sorry, TWD-ers but I'm not a fan of biscotti and there's no one here to eat it, so I skipped this week. But I did make pumpkin pancakes last weekend (Sunday was Pumpkin Day- stay tuned for the pumpkin chili I made). And they were a hit with the kids (of course, anything with syrup is a hit, I guess). They were light and fluffy, but still cakey. Topped with syrup, it was the perfect breakfast (could've used some whipped cream, though!).
makes about 8 pancakes
1 cup all purpose flour
4 tablespoons brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup canned solid pack pumpkin
1 large egg
Mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, soda and cinnamon in a large bowl. Whisk milk, pumpkin, and egg in a medium bowl. Add to dry ingredients and whisk until just blended.
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into skillet. Cook pancakes until bubbles form on top and bottoms are golden, about 3 minutes. Turn pancakes over. Cook until bottoms are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Serve with maple syrup.
