Pumpkin pancakes

On sunday I wanted some healthier pancakes. With fall comes my obsession with pumpkin and I hunted up a recipe for pumpkin pancakes at my favourite recipe site ( and OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH MAN they are delicious. Pictures? I was too busy making groany noises to remember to take them. There's a photo on the website...
The recipe makes a bunch (I probably could have halved it for just the 2 of us) so I have some tucked away in the freezer for lunches too. Squeee!
The recipe is here. All I did was replace the spices with plain old pumpkin pie spice (I had no ginger or allspice kicking around) and used 1 cup whole wheat flour with 1 cup white flour and they were VERY soft and fluffy, and healthier than my regular pancakes (only 2 T of oil) and seriously delicious. The batter is thick making nice thick fluffy cakes, which is the way I like them. Cook them on medium heat tho - the sugar in the pumpkin browns up quickly...and you get fluffier cakes that way too.

5 gold stars - They are on my list of fantastic breakfasts now.
Try some soon - you'll be glad you did!

THese sound great - except the vinegar, but worth a try! Now, can you come to my house in the morning and fix 'em for me?
