Pumpkin Pancakes

(4 servings)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 large eggs - separated
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
Sift together dry ingredients. Combine milk, egg yolks, butter and pumpkin puree. Stir into dry ingredients until just blended. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter. Pour onto hot, oiled griddle, about 1/3 cup at a time. Cook until tops bubble and turn and cook other side.

For fun at Halloween, try sprinkling completed pancakes with that orange-colored sugar (usually found near the muffin and cake mixes in the grocery store.)
