Friday was garbage day so Thursday night I was cleaning out the uneaten, overdue leftovers from the fridge. Next year I’m going to resolve to waste less food!
Earlier in the week I made pumpkin muffins and pumpkin french toast (as mentioned in the Jan 1st post), and I was determined to use the pumpkin leftovers before they ended up in next week’s garbage.
Friday morning I was inspired to make pumpkin pancakes. Unfortunately I started them too late in the morning to actually give them to my son for breakfast. He was just too hungry to wait. But what I discovered is that the cold pancakes make an excellent snack! He just loved them!
Plus, they were a great breakfast hot off the griddle! My husband who isn’t a huge fan of pancakes said he’d eat them again.
I found that once I mixed the wet and dry ingredients the batter was too thick. So I ended up adding another 1/2 cup or so of milk to thin it out.
For some reason I always struggle with cooking pancakes. It usually takes a couple batches in the pan and tweaks to the batter before they cook up properly.
Any tips on cooking the perfect pancake?
