I'm no Pioneer Woman, so excuse the lame pictures.

We have friends from Spokane named Joe and Amy Lee. This is her recipe. Her blog is private, otherwise, I'd send you there.

Nothing says (or smells) like Fall like these!

Pumpkin Puff Pancakes (which I make into waffles because we like waffles better than pancakes)

2 (8) eggs
1 (4) cup buttermilk
1/2 (2)cup cooked pumpkin (I use the Libby's can)
1 1/2 (6) cups Bisquick
1/4 (1) cup oil
pinch of salt
2 (8) TBSP sugar
1 (4) tsp soda
1/2 (2) tsp cinnamon
1/2 (2) tsp nutmeg
1/2 (2) tsp ginger

(I quadruple the recipe and leave the left overs in the frig to eat at will - like when the kids are in school and I can take my time enjoying the delight.) Beat the eggs until they are pale yellow and foamy. Stir in the remaining ingredients. (I leave it all in my kitchenaid and just add the ingredients.) Pour onto ungreased griddle. Flip. OR pour into waffle iron. Flip. Open. See:
MMMMMMMM... that steam smells delicious!

Serve with this syrup:

Apple Cider Syrup

2 TBSP cornstarch
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 cups apple CIDER (not juice - VERY IMPORTANT!)
2 TBSP lemon juice
1/4 cup butter, melted
sugar to sweeten

In saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in lemon juice and mix the cornstarch good. Add apple CIDER. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Make about 2 1/2 cups syrup.

Now, here's my notes. Check your cider. Usually the cider in Spokane was sweet. Here it is not (or hasn't been) so I've had to add as much as a cup of sugar. I double this recipe.

You are welcome!

  6. Okay so we made some modifications to the recipe but we just finished eating ours and they are tasty. You know we eat low fat so we couldn't eat the original recipe but we made it with our whole wheat just add water mix and used some splenda. They came out fantastic and we will be making these some more. Super delicious and low fat who knew.
