Fluffy, yummy, subtly pumpkin-y (is that a word?!) pancakes that just beg for the cooler temperatures of autumn! Decorate with strategically placed berries or chocolate chips to make jack-o-lantern pancakes!
1 1/4 cup Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 tsp. baking powder, gluten-free
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 large egg or egg substitute (¼ cup mashed banana works well here)
2 Tbs. canola oil
1 Tbs. brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup puréed pumpkin
1 1/2 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
1/2 cup raisins, cranberries or chocolate chips (optional)
High heat cooking oil for the pan
Sift the flour, baking powder and spices together and set aside.
Whisk the egg, oil and brown sugar until mixed. Stir in the pumpkin, then add this wet mixture to the dry ingredients. Slowly add the milk while stirring until blended. Fold in berries if using.
Using an electric skillet or large skillet over medium-high heat, add enough high heat cooking oil to lightly coat the entire surface.
Carefully add spoonfuls of the batter to the hot oil, spreading the batter with the back of a spoon to thin it out. Decorate with berries or chips before flipping when the uncooked side begins to bubble and the cooking surface is golden brown.
Serve warm with maple syrup or confectioner's sugar.
