Since I’ve made a ton of progress on getting the house all cute and pretty and my kitchen is in complete working order, I thought I would make pancakes. I’ve had this Amish Pumpkin Pancake recipe lying around for years now and I’ve never made it. I’ve also had a can of Pumpkin hiding in my cupboards for awhile now and I wanted to use it. And since pumpkin is apparently a super food, I thought it would be a great breakfast for my girls.
The recipe is a really easy one to follow. It’s just a matter of mixing all the ingredients together in one bowl. But since I’m still finding my way around the kitchen and figuring out where my mom stashed everything (I am grateful, don’t get me wrong!), it took me a lot longer than it normally would have!
These traditional pancakes are light and warm with pumpkin or filling and flavorful with sweet potatoes, but no matter how you make them, they are a wonderful autumn breakfast treat!
