Not Quite a Can of Pumpkin

I had a surprisingly hard time finding a recipe that uses less then 1 whole 15 oz can of pumpkin. After the lattes I didn't want the leftover to go to waste. I finally came across one yesterday. So, if you have a tupperware container sitting in your fridge of leftover pumpkin puree that normally would just be thrown out when you find it in there 2 months later (oh wait, that's just me), make this instead!

Pumpkin Pancakes

You will need:

  •  1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp veggie oil
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
Combine the milk, egg, pumpkin, oil and vinegar in a bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt.

Stir dry ingredients into pumpkin mixture just enough to combine. It's pretty thick for a pancake batter, but don't fret:).

Pour about 1/4 cup of batter at a time on a heated and oiled pan/skillet. *Sidepoint* I'm in the market for a nice cast iron skillet, if anyone has any suggestions or recommendations. After I poured the batter it was just a blob so I spread it around a little with a spoon.

They took about 4-5 minutes on each side on medium heat. You'll think they are done after 2 but they aren't, so just leave them on the pan. Hah the first one I did I said, "oh this is totally done by now". I cut it open and it was batter inside:(. They fluff up so much that it takes awhile to cook through.

It made 8 (minus the one I messed up). I threw these in freezer bags by 2's to have as a quick, yummy, filling breakfast. They reheat nicely and are sooo good:).

 They are best when eaten on classy paper plates:)

I want to make the pumpkin donuts she has on her blog so bad but I don't have a donut pan:(. It's on the list:).

Okay, this weeks nail color is Oui Madame by Essie. It's very bridal (matt agrees), I like it. Last pedi I got I choose Anniversary by OPI and it's very similar to this but this has more of a pearl look to it, as opposed to Anniversary, which was glittery. This one wins because the OPI polish was killer/impossible to get off and ended up murdering my poor little toe nails because I gave up and left it on for a very very...very long time.

Liane and I just went Saturday to Blu Spa and got pedis. The September specials are good, there's not much time left, but check it out if you have time before the end of the month. Anyway, I got French Quarter for Your Thoughts. It's a really nice gray color, I like it.

Ok, I'm going to finish eating my pumpkin pancakes before they get cold!!!
