Yummy, Pumpkin Pancakes!

We make a lot of fun breakfast foods in this house. Crepes, waffles, and pancakes top the list. I am always game to try new recipes. This time I was inspired by a can of organic pumpkin that has been in the cupboard for awhile. I LOVE Vegetarian Times Magazine, so I flipped to the back of some in my stack, because they have all the recipes for that issue on a page, according to which meal or category it falls into. I was excited to find this recipe. I didn't make the yummy Honey Raspberry Syrup that goes with them, but plan to next time. If you don't received Vegetarian Times, fear not, they have a great website, where you will find this recipe, along with the syrup recipe. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Pancakes with Honey-Raspberry Syrup

Ingredient List

Serves 6
Honey-raspberry syrup
1 lb. frozen raspberries, divided (4 cups)
½ cup honey

Pumpkin Pancakes
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground ginger
¼ tsp. salt
3 large eggs
¹⁄3 cup honey
1½ cups low-fat milk
1 cup pumpkin purée or canned pumpkin
½ tsp. vanilla extract

1. To make Honey-Raspberry Syrup: Place 3 cups frozen raspberries and 1/2 cup water in saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer 5 minutes, or until berries are soft. Mash in pan until smooth. Strain berry mixture through sieve into separate saucepan. (You should have 1 to 1 1/4 cups.) Stir in honey, and return mixture to a boil. Remove from heat, add remaining 1 cup frozen raspberries, and cover to steam and thaw whole raspberries. Set aside.
2. To make Pumpkin Pancakes: Whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt in bowl.
3. Beat eggs and honey in separate bowl. Whisk in milk, pumpkin purée, and vanilla extract. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture with spatula or wooden spoon.
4. Coat nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Ladle 2/3 cup batter onto skillet for each pancake. Cook 3 minutes, or until bubbles begin to form in center of pancakes. Flip, and cook 2 to 3 minutes more, or until pancakes are browned on both sides. Serve warm with Honey-Raspberry Syrup.
