Pumpkin Pie Pancakes, also known as the 3 Ps no one needed in their life. Or not. You need to try them before you judge them, but we have enjoyed them a lot so we are
almost sure you will too.
As you may have gathered, I am obsessed with pumpkin spice everything, and having had the chance to be in New York last year around September – I would not recommend unless you want to raid all the Targets and Trader Joes in your radar: everything was just perfect, the food, the decorations, the everything-is-pumpkin-tasting and I was just there for it.
So yesterday, in honour of a little tradition the girls and I share, and to celebrate fall, we have gone full on Pumpkin Pie Pancakes.
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice mix
- Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice mix in a large bowl.
- In a separate smaller bowl, mix the milk, egg, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract until everything is combined.
- Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well until combined, with no lumps.
- Warm-up your pan and add a tad bit of butter, unless you have a non-stick pan or griddle, then start cooking the pancakes and flip once the top side starts bubbling.
- Once ready, serve with your choice of topping, we have gone for Maple Syrup and...Nutella! Worked amazingly.
These freeze well if made in batches - just place in the oven at 180°C for 5-10 minutes.
These have gone down quite easily – and quickly – around here, they taste like what I would assume Thanksgiving tastes of: warmth, spices, family gatherings and all of that sort of stuff.
I have managed to get Cristina to eat them – even though she is not a fan of the pumpkin pie spice mix, for some reason – and she enjoyed them too, so it’s hard not to assume these are great.
Could easily make them vegan too – swap the egg for a smashed banana and there you have it, with little to no effort.
I am planning, together with the girls, to make some more fall/Halloween themed recipes all based on, you guessed it, pumpkin – so please come forward with any recommendation you might have, whether that’s sweet or savoury.
So far, we have enjoyed pumpkin in pie form, in lattes, in pancakes and also in one of the best Buddha Bowls Fred ever made to date – find some inspo on our Pinterest, here.
