Pumpkin Pancakes

Kids love to cook and eat pancakes, so why not give the classic dish a seasonal (and nutritious!) twist with some pureed pumpkin? Simply substitute canned pumpkin if you don’t have a fresh one available. This recipe comes to us from Karen of Our Blessed Adventures.

Serves 4-6

Cooking Tip of the Week: Overmixing pancake batter can cause the pancakes to become tough instead of light and fluffy. Stop mixing as soon as everything looks moistened, it’s okay to have a few lumps.

Food for Thought: So many cultures have some version of a pancake, from French crêpes to Ethiopian injera. What is your favorite kind of pancake?
