Pumpkin Pancakes

I am in love with everything about the fall season and pumpkins! I love this time of year and I especially love all things pumpkins – carving, baking and eating.  I warned everyone that there was going to be a lot of pumpkin recipes this month here is recipe number three and there are more to come!

We love pancakes at our house.  I have to admit I make a pretty delicious batch of light and fluffy pancakes. It is by far the most requested breakfast at our house. The secret is to separate the batter between wet and dry ingredients and do not over mix. Pancake batter just needs to be combined. You don’t need to whisk it until it is perfectly blended. Perfectly blended pancakes make perfectly tough pancakes so be gentle with the batter and it will love you back with fluffy light pancakes.

Pumpkin pancakes are a great way to introduce pumpkin to kids’ diets because it is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants. You can also add chocolate chips or walnuts to the batter to make them extra yummy.

Bernice first started Yummy Tummy Cooking when her son was 2 years old. After being a little disappointed and down right scared at times (meat sticks in a jar…need I say more) with the food selection at the supermarket, she started making her children’s meals at home. Most weekends you can find her in the kitchen, supermarket or local farmers markets. Bernice’s philosophy to what she feeds her family is simple – try to buy local and organic. She has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry; if she has to refer to her degree to decipher the ingredients, she doesn’t buy it. If she can’t read it, they don’t eat it….that simple!
