Hello my friends,
Cooking breakfast is unusual for me, and making pancakes is not in my recipe book. Breakfast is Geoffrey's territory. But this week I did my very first recipe for a Spiced Pumpkin Pancake - it was actually my first pancake ever - can you believe it? I love pancakes, and I'm like a little kid waiting for Sundays. Sunday is the official Pancake Day in our house. Geoffrey makes THE BEST banana cinnamon pancakes, and his pancakes come with a lot of love.
My second favorite pancake was made by a restaurant by our house called Balans Restaurant, which unfortunately has since closed down. From this place, I always order the Jumbo breakfast which comes with home fries potatoes, sausage, fruit salad, eggs, bacon, and pancakes. Their pancake is nothing out of this world, but what gives the distinctive taste is their maple walnut butter. This butter is sweet with small walnut pieces. It's just amazing!!!
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix
Now, let's talk about my special Spiced Pumpkin Pancake recipe. First, I made homemade Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix from scratch. I use all-purpose flour, white whole wheat flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, nonfat dry milk powder, sugar, and salt. Then, store it in a dry airtight container at room temperature up to six months.
To keep to our weekly tradition, I decided to make my Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes last Sunday. I usually don't make breakfast because I tend to add and add and end up cooking a very elaborate meal. This is why Geoffrey is in charge because he makes a straightforward and quick breakfast, or brunch, or other meals by putting together various things I already made from the refrigerator. He has a tough job, huh?
I'm an early riser, and I started to make the pancakes around 6:30 AM before Geoffrey woke up. I wanted to surprise him with breakfast already on the table with a hot cup of Dominican coffee, Prosecco with orange juice, and light, fluffy and very filling Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes with some fresh blackberries & raspberries. Then I topped these delicious pancakes with Pure Organic Vermont Maple Syrup, which we have available for purchase in our online shop. I'm in love with this syrup, and I'm using it every afternoon to make a personal homemade Pumpkin Spice Mocha. Well, actually I'm using the Organic Cinnamon-Infused Vermont Maple Syrup which we also have in our shop. Don’t tell Geoffrey because he doesn’t know I’m doing this almost every day! I think my cafe mocha is better than Starbucks. Yes, Really!
Making the Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes
Making the pancake batter is easy and quick. Just get a large mixing bowl and add one lightly beaten egg, milk, canned pumpkin puree, vegetable oil and the vanilla. Combine everything and make sure it is well incorporated before you go to the final step of adding 2 cups of the Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix. Then, blend well. For my taste, the batter was too thick, and the first pancake was hard to spread on the pan. If this happens, just add ½ a cup more milk, and it will be perfect.
I'm surprised at the number of people who need help in making the perfect pancake - not the mix, but the cooking. So until I make a video myself, here is one that I found that should help you out:
Geoffrey loved the Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes, and already asked me what is on the menu for next weekend. I said: “let me see what I can arrange for you,” but we all know he’ll be the one in the breakfast kitchen next Sunday.
