Pumpkin Pancakes

Life is full of sweet memories and great food.  Not too long ago I attended a wedding with a dear friend of mine and we came across one of the best things we've ever eaten - Pumpkin Pancakes!!!  The lovely couple decided to serve a Southern breakfast for dinner at their wedding which was genius and delicious all at the same time.  Once we took a bite of those pancakes, we were hooked and when I say hooked....  I mean they were so good that when everyone else got in line for the cutting of the wedding cake, we decided go for seconds and thirds of the pumpkin pancakes. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Pumpkin Pancakes

1 1/2 cups milk (may use more depending on how thick you like your pancakes)
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon  salt

In a bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar.  Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt in a separate bowl.  Stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.  Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.  Brown on both sides and serve hot with butter and syrup.  You may also want to add a dollop of whipped cream. Serves 6
