Homemade Pumpkin Pancakes

One of the items Rachel and I enjoyed on our recent visit to Yoder's Restaurant in Sarasota were some of their pumpkin pancakes.  Their pancakes had a delicious pumpkiny taste and just made them a real treat.  Lovina also makes homemade pumpkin pancakes on occasion and they are also delicious.  She uses her own home-grown pumpkin, but that isn't practical for most people so this recipe was adapted for store-bought pumpkin or even sweet potatoes.

1 c. flour
Pinch baking soda
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ginger
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1 egg well-beaten
1 1/4 c. milk
2 tbsp. melted shortening
1/2 c. canned pumpkin or mashed sweet potato, cooked

Combine flour, soda, sugar and spices. Combine egg, shortening, pumpkin and milk; add to flour mixture, beating until smooth. Bake on hot, lightly greased griddle, turning only once. Serve hot with butter and syrup or powdered sugar.

Re: Homemade Pumpkin Pancakes

Mmmmmm....pumpkin pancakes!Tongue out  I actually just made pumpkin pancakes for my family last week.  They are delicious.  We put butter and powdered sugar on ours.  I, however, did not make them from scratch.  I used Aunt Jemima mix and canned pumpkin.
