Favorite PUMPKIN Recipes!

Bake at 350My buddy Bridget of Bake at 350 host’s a party titled Flavor of the Month at the end of each month. (her party will start this evening – so I’ll link this post up then)

This month’s flavor is PUMPKIN!

I have been having FUN with Pumpkin this month!! It’s one of our favorite flavors and can be used so many ways! I have several pumpkin recipes to share!

Actually the first Pumpkin recipe I tried, was one Bridget posted for

Pumpkin Pancakes

Serving Size: 16 pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups buttermilk (*I used powdered)
  • 4 TBSP melted butter
  • 4 TBSP canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice

Instructions

  1. Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with no stick spray.
  2. Combine eggs, buttermilk, butter, pumpkin, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Use an electric mixer to blend ingredients.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and blend with mixer until smooth.
  5. Pour or scoop the batter onto hot skillet, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.
  6. When the batter stops bubbling and edges begin to harden, flip the
  7. pancakes. They should be golden brown. This will take from 1 to 2 minutes.
  8. Flip the pancakes and cook other side for the same amount of time, until
  9. golden brown.
  10. Serve warm with syrup.

Notes

*TIPS

1. I used the powdered buttermilk, this way I always have some on hand – if you use the powdered – replace buttermilk with 1-1/4 cup water in the wet ingredients, and add 5 TBSP of buttermilk mix to the dry ingredients

2. My skillet makes 4 pancackes at a time, I heat my oven to about 180° and place cooked pancakes on a plate and place in oven while I cook the next batch, remove plate to add another batch to plate and place back in warm oven until all pancakes are cooked.

3. I plan to make a few batches and freeze them – Cool pancakes completely on wire rack, After they’ve cooled, stack them up between sheets up wax paper and freeze. Wrap pancakes securely in a moisture proof air tight freezer bag, then place in another bag (double wrapped). Freeze for no more than six weeks. Separate, then microwave to reheat – Stack 3 frozen pancakes on a plate, microwave uncovered on HIGH for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 minutes or until pancakes are hot.

  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 TBSP water
  • mini chocolate chips to garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.

  4. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until well-blended. Use an icecream scooper to fill prepared baking cups. Bake for about 18-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

  6. Remove from pans and let cool on a rack.
