Pumpkin Pancakes

Fall has finally arrived in south Louisiana (of course, I'm writing this on a day where it's warmed up and is unbelievably HUMID...I'm hopeful this will pass soon!), and the time has come for pumpkin decorations and yummy pumpkin recipes! The other day I found a recipe for pumpkin pancakes, and it sounded delicious! We decided Sunday night was the time to try out this new tasty treat. The tradition in the Bramlett house is Laura mixes the pancakes and Daniel makes/flips them. Sunday was no different.

The pumpkin we got on clearance at Target last year

All this recipe takes is pancake mix, water, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice...I think Daniel was a little excited about the new cooking adventure. :)

So the recipe called for 1/2 cup pumpkin...a can of pumpkin is about a cup...we decided to double the recipe and have pumpkin pancakes until Jesus comes back. :)

What did Riley do while we were trying our hand at the pumpkin cakes? Played in one of his new favorite spots! He loves hitting the toys and looking at himself in the mirror!

When he got a little fussy, it was time for the bjorn! Riley is a very sociable little guy, and we've noticed that while he doesn't mind playing by himself sometimes, he really enjoys being around his mommy and daddy.

Daniel got serious about his pancake-making and pulled out both skillets...one of these days we're going to have to get a griddle.

big mouth ready for the big pancake :)

Here they are! We had some good friends over to eat, and after the four of us had our fill, we still had pancakes left over that I was able to freeze for another meal.
