Cool Fall Morning Bliss

This morning's adventure was in the kitchen--pumpkin pancakes.  I've been looking for a good kid-friendly recipe with pumpkin that wasn't a cookie or cake.  Cavett's class is having a pumpkin tasting next week and I volunteered to bring something in the non-cookie/cake genre.  Pancakes are on the verge, but I was also looking for something they would actually try.

Compared to some "make from scratch" pancake recipes, this one was pretty easy.  Be ready, these are not Reduced Fat Bisquick style.  Talk about yummy!

2 c. all purpose flour
8 T. packed brown sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
1 2/3 c. buttermilk
1/2 of a can of pumpkin
3 large eggs
2 T. melted butter

Mix the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and blend.  Whisk buttermilk, pumpkin, eggs and melted butter in a medium bowl until blended.  Add to dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.  Cook in a skillet on medium heat.  Serve with syrup. 

Although, Cavett complained at the start, he said he liked them ok and finished his plate of two.  Kendrick gobbled up two and asked for more.  Let's hear it for vitamin A!
