Awhile ago, I made some Lazy Morning Pancakes from The Lotus and the Artichoke. I was pining for some pumpkin pancakes, and felt this recipe could easy be modified. I mentioned this multiple times and it took a couple months, but I finally did it. Here's my original recipe for these Promised Pumpkin Pancakes.
|Ingredients at the ready!|
|Wet ingredients into dry.|
|Ready to eat!|
1 1/2 cups flour
1 Tbsp chickpea flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3 Tbsp sugar in the raw
1 tsp ground flax seeds
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 2/3 cups soy milk (or a nut milk)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp canola oil
- Mix all dry ingredients (flours through cinnamon) in a large mixing bowl.
- Add remaining wet ingredients into the dry. Whisk until batter is mostly smooth.
- Heat a cast iron griddle, if you have it, or your favorite pancake pan over medium heat. (My gas stove was hot enough at medium-low, but some ovens may need medium-high.)
- Oil the griddle with a few drops oil rubbed in with a paper towel or use cooking spray (my preference). Re-oil between pancakes. The pan is hot enough when a drop of water sizzles on the surface.
- Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter onto the pan.
- When bubbles form consistently on the edges and in the center of the pancake, check underside to see if it is ready to flip. This should occur within about 2 minutes at the appropriate heat. Too hot and you'll have a black rather than golden brown surface without the interior of the pancake cooked through.
- Flip the pancake over and cook for 1-2 more minutes.
- Transfer finished pancake to a plate in a warm oven to keep warm until serving.
- Serve with powdered sugar, nuts, and/or maple syrup for the Perfect Promised Pumpkin Pancake.
- Makes about 10 pancakes.
- Can be frozen and toasted & reheated in microwave later.
- These are the ingredients I used. I used King Arthur's Unbleached All Purpose Flour. You could substitute granulated sugar for sugar in the raw or a nut milk for the soy milk. I used canola oil, but a vegetable oil would also work fine.
