Pumpkin Spice Latte Pancakes

   Another pumpkin recipe? Yes, because I had pumpkin that needed to be used up before it went bad. Plus, I've been wanting to try this recipe for awhile now.
   Husband is leaving to go to a Haz-Mat conference for a few days, so I wanted to make something for breakfast that was a little more special than usual. I decided these pancakes should do the trick. 
   We slept in as long as Little Mr allowed us too, then while I made breakfast 'D'+ 'G-bug' spent some father/son time together. {Hubs isn't too excited to be away from his little boy for that long, so he was getting in as much together time as possible.} I can't say I'm too excited about him being gone either, but it will definitely make a difference having another little person in the house with me this time!

Pumpkin Spice Latte Pancakes
yield: 8 pancakes

1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
4 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp espresso powder
4 tbsp buttermilk powder
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup brewed coffee, at room temperature
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
whipped cream
In a bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt pumpkin pie spice, espresso powder and buttermilk powder. In another bowl whisk together egg, vanilla, coffee, water and pumpkin. Add to dry ingredients stirring just until moistened. Set aside to rest.
Heat a griddle on medium heat. When it is hot pour about 1/2 cup of batter onto surface and fry until golden brown. Flip and fry until golden brown on the other side.
Serve with whipping cream or syrup. {I suggest whipped cream}

     These were as delicious as I thought they would be. A perfect fall, Sunday morning breakfast!

   On another note, {although not really because it involves pumpkins too} we took 'G-bug' to the pumpkin patch yesterday and found him a pumpkin that was just his size. He was happy with it I believe! =)

How is our little 'punkin' already almost 6 months old?!?


O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is Your name in all the earth! 
You have set Your glory above
the heavens.
From the lips of children and infants
You have ordained praise....
~Psalm 8:1+2
