Fabulous Fall Foods Friday - Week 2

One of the most amazing chef's in the world was in my kitchen last Sunday morning helping me make breakfast.  He measured, poured and stirred, whipping up an incredible fall delight.
It was the perfect beginning of a scrumptious fall day spent at the pumpkin patch and corn maze.
These pancakes were wonderful, gobbled up so quickly that I came very near to not getting a picture of them. 
Pumpkin Pancakes

2 cups flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. allspice
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups solid pack pumpkin
3 eggs
1 cup milk
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla
4 oz. chopped pecans

Sift dry ingrediants in a medium bowl and set aside.   In a large bowl combine pumpkin, eggs, milk, oil and vanilla.  Add dry ingrediants and stir until blended.  Mix in pecans.

Cook on a hot greased griddle until bubbles form and bottom is brown.  Flip.  I always put a dab of butter on each pancake after I turn them and before taking them off the griddle.  Just makes them yummy.    Serve with warm cinnamon maple syrup.
