There’s something about an autumnal Saturday morning with no place to be. Children sleep in, coffee brews, lounging occurs…perhaps a bit of reading is done? Or not. And then at some point even the chill in the air prompts you to feed the masses. But what shall you feed them? Mmmm….Yum! of course! And there’s nothing I know of better than the deliciousness below! Enjoy, my friends! It’s the best flavor I can offer up to a spectacular fall lounge-fest! Now I know yo’ momma didn’t serve you this, chile!
Pumpkin Pancakes with Maple Pecan Syrup
2T Brown sugar
1T baking powder
1 ¼ t pumpkin spice
½ c pure pumpkin puree
1 large egg
2T vegetable oil
Combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, pumpkin and oil. Add the flour mixture and stir just until moistened. The batter may be a bit lumpy. That’s okay. Cook as you would other pancakes.
Maple Pecan Syrup
1c maple syrup
1 ¼ c pure pumpkin puree
¼ c chopped pecans
¼ t cinnamon
Heat ingredients in a small saucepan until warm.
I like the flavor that roasted pecans give to this sauce rather than just chopping raw ones in and calling them enough. They’re not. To me anyway. Also, this sauce begs to be poured over other things too….like cheesecake, vanilla ice cream, waffles, or whatever you can imagine it on! It’s Yum! Uh-huh. Yes it is……
By the way, you better cook up a pound or two of bacon to go with that. It's the right thing to do.
What’s your favorite thing to do on a slow, cold, Saturday morning in fall?
