Pumpkin Pancakes

The holiday season is finally here and you know what that means ... Trader Joe's pumpkin puree is finally back in stores! I ADORE pancakes and I decided since pumpkin puree is here again I would make pumpkin pancakes. I modified a basic pancake recipe and they turned out great, nice and fluffy. Since I am always short on time in the morning I like to make a batch on Sunday night and I reheat them in the morning throughout the week for breakfast. These pancakes come out nice and fluffy even when they have been reheated.

Pumpkin Pancakes (makes 6-8 pancakes)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup of pumpkin puree

1. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar.
2. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree and mix until smooth.
3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle. Brown on each side and serve.

I have a wonderful picture of these pancakes but my husband is using our computer so hopefully I can post it tomorrow.
