This week in Holiday Food Fest is all about Thanksgiving and Fall dishes, hosted by Alta. I had the idea of mine all ready to go. Today, being Remembrance Day, I don’t have school, so I made pumpkin pancakes for breakfast. And they were amazing. I couldn’t not share. Plus, its a fall dish – a breakfast one! Seriously, these are heaven. So light, just pumpkiny enough, just enough spice, just enough everything. They’re satisfying without being full and heavy. I’ve made other pancakes, which I thought were light, but these are no comparison. They might just float away.
And there’s the butter. Melted butter inside the pancakes. I only buttered the pan for the first one. They didn’t need it. The butter came from within, giving every bite a hint of butter flavour, without any weight. Seriously, how light these were shocked me. They are fairly thin pancakes, but have such an airiness to them.
1/3 cup sorghum flour
1/3 cup millet flour
1/3 cup tapioca flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 cup milk
6 tbsp pumpkin puree
2 tbsp melted butter
1. Whisk flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices together in a large bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, stir together remaining ingredients.
3. Fold liquid mixture into dry mixture.
4. Melt some butter in a skillet over medium heat.
5. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Cook about 3 minutes on each side (I deceased this the more I cooked. The last ones were 1 1/2 minutes each side).
I’m melting staring at these photos. There might be some left upstairs!
Okay, I’m back. Yes. I did just race up to the kitchen.
And for your information, they do taste good cold.
Seriously, how could you not love these?
And while I still have your attention, there are 2 little things.
is ready! Amy
‘s ebook to raise money

. Just so you know, all of the recipes are kid friendly, so if you have kids (or like to let you inner one shine through), I would definitely suggest grabbing a copy.
Today is Remembrance Day. Thank you to all that have fought for Canada. You are so very brave, and I am grateful for your sacrifice. May there not be any more wars that require fighting. My Greatgrandpa and my Grandpa were soldiers in the First and Second World Wars respectively.
When my Nana was a child and asked what my Greatgrandpa did in the war, he always said the same thing “I would stand on the roofs in Paris, catch the bombs and throw them back.” Yes, I’m sure thats not what he actually did, but it’s definitely a description I will never forget.
