This is the first post in our Pumpkin Series. Watch for many more pumpkin recipes in the blog spot this week!
Being that it's October, this is a time of year when pumpkin invades everything -- from our front stoop to our baked goods and breakfasts. Naturally, we eat a lot of pumpkin pancakes this month too (my son, Will, is a pancake fanatic).
This Pumpkin Banana Pancakes recipe is a family favorite. Chunks of bananas, pockets of cinnamon and all around great pumpkin taste make these fabulous pancakes delicious.
Want to make some? It's simple.
You start with one egg, which you beat until it's a pale yellow and frothy. Use a stand mixer, and it's a cinch.
Then you add most of the remaining ingredients (save the bananas and cinnamon chips), mix it up. Finally, stir in those banana chunks and cinnamon chips and you are ready to cook up some delicious pancakes.
And one more note: When making these or any pancakes, having a nonstick double burner griddle
really makes the process a lot faster and easier. A good nonstick one will help you make multiple pancakes at once without any sticking or headaches. I never thought I would say that, especially with all the grief I gave my husband when he bought one for our home, but it really is a kitchen must-have for breakfast making.
