Pumpkin pancake

Here is  a pancake we recently tried and enjoyed very much. I got the recipe and hints from this website and thanks to the author, I could make a flavorful pancake for our weekend.Try this and fall in love with this Thanksgiving recipe forever:)

Pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup.
Electric griddle favorite, which I got from last year's Thanksgiving sale:)
AP flour - 1 cup
Milk - 3/4 cup
Egg -1
Pumpkin puree - 1/2 cup
vinegar / yogurt - 1 tbsp
brown sugar - 2 tbsp
butter (soften) - 1 tbsp
baking powder - 1 tsp
baking soda - 1/2 tsp
All spice powder - 1/2 tsp
cinnamon - 1/2 tsp
ginger powder - 1/2 tsp
salt - 1/4 tsp
Also we may need:
Approx 1 tbsp butter - for making all the pancakes
maple syrup - as per need

Sift the All purpose flour (maida), salt, baking soda, baking powder together twice. This makes the pancakes very spongy and airy. Add all the other items in a mixie or blender and mix well.
Then add the sifted flour and blend again , till its a very smooth batter. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
Heat a frying pan or electric griddle (to 350 deg F). Smear some butter on the pan.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter and let it spread itself. Flip and cook both sides till golden brown.

Serving suggestions:
Serve warm with maple syrup or honey topped with fresh fruits.

The recipe may give about 9 pancakes (made with 1/4 cup batter).
We can refrigerate , freeze , reheat and use the leftover pancakes.
I save some pumpkin pieces while making curry. Then cook them in little water, puree and freeze it. I measure and label them before freezing (1 cup, 2 cup ). This homemade pumpkin puree is very handy just like a can of store bought one.
