October brings crisp fall weather, bright fall foliage, cozy sweaters and pumpkin-spice everything. One of my favourite ways to start off the seasonal binge is a towering stack of these bright orange pancakes drizzled with lots of maple syrup and some crispy bacon on the side. Pair them up with a pumpkin spice latte for maximum fall flavour!
Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, pumpkin, egg, maple syrup, butter and vanilla.
In a second large bowl, sift together the rest of the ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and whisk together until just barely combined (it's okay if there are a few small lumps).
Heat a lightly-oiled griddle over medium heat. Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour batter onto the hot griddle.
Cook the pancakes until they're golden brown on the bottom, about 3-5 minutes, then flip over and cook until the other side is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes longer.
Repeat with the remaining batter, keeping pancakes warm on a baking sheet in the oven between batches.
Serve right away with lots of maple syrup!
