|Pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup.|
|Electric griddle ....my favorite, which I got from last year's Thanksgiving sale:)|
AP flour - 1 cup
Milk - 3/4 cup
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.
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.
