Pumpkin and Pecan Pancakes

The best part about Fall is putting pumpkin puree in just about anything we make! Last Sunday, we decided to add some autumn flavors into our regular pancake batter and boy were we happy with the results. The pancakes were just as fluffy and light as our usual pancakes but with something special added to it. These pancakes are a perfect way to start or end your day. Pumpkin pancakes for dinner is perfectly acceptable this time of the year!

1 1/2 cups of flour

1 tablespoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon on salt

1 egg
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 1/2 cups of milk
3 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of pumpkin puree

1 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
Nonstick cooking spray
Maple syrup
Whipped Cream (optional)

Kitchen Essentials:
Nonstick pan
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Mixing bowl
3 small bowls

Cutting board

Begin adding the butter to a small bowl and heating for about 30 seconds in the microwave to melt. Set aside to cool. 

Chop the pecans and place in a small bowl. Set aside.

Measure out the wet ingredients: milk, egg, pumpkin puree and vanilla extract. Then, place in a small bowl. 

In a mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients: flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, salt and sugar. Using the whisk, quickly mix the dry ingredients to incorporate.

While whisking, slowly begin to add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Whisk for about a minute to ensure that there are no lumps in the pancake batter. Lastly, add the chopped pecans and cooled melted butter and give it one quick stir. 

Place the nonstick pan over medium heat and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray. Make sure the pan is hot before you begin to cook the pancakes. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, fill it with pancake batter and pour it the middle of the nonstick pan. Let the batter cook for about a minute and you will begin to see bubbles form on the top. Using the spatula, gently slide it under the pancake and quickly flip. Allow the other side to cook. Remove the pancakes from the heat and stack them on a clean plate.  Repeat the process, spraying the nonstick pan with cooking spray each time. 

Serve the pancakes with a little bit of butter, whipped cream, maple syrup and some chopped pecans. Enjoy!
