While searching for a pumpkin pie recipe to make for Thanksgiving on Monday, I came across this thread.
Not sure how the Living recipe turned out for you, but since we're in the thick of pumpkin season I wanted to mention this recipe too. Colleen posted them quite a while back and I've made the recipe a couple of times. So good!
Pumpkin-Ginger Pancakes with Ginger Butter
NOTES: Our pancakes are standard-size, but Margaret Fox makes them silver dollar-size, which she says makes them easier to flip. PREP AND COOK TIME: About 45 minutes.
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup plain low-fat or nonfat yogurt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Candied-ginger butter (recipe follows)
1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. In another bowl, mix egg, milk, pumpkin, yogurt, and butter until well blended. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until evenly moistened.
2. Place a nonstick griddle or a 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium heat (350°); when hot, coat lightly with butter and adjust heat to maintain temperature. Spoon batter in 1/3-cup portions onto griddle and gently spread into 4-inch rounds. Cook until pancakes are browned on the bottom and edges begin to look dry, 2 to 3 minutes; turn with a wide spatula and brown other sides, 2 to 3 minutes longer. As pancakes are cooked, transfer to baking sheets and keep warm in a 200° oven. Serve warm with candied-ginger butter and maple syrup.
Candied-ginger butter: In a bowl, with a wooden spoon, stir 2 tablespoons finely chopped candied ginger into 1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) soft butter (soften in a microwave oven on full power [100%] for 5 to 10 seconds). Chill until firm before serving. Makes about 1/4 cup.
Nutritional analysis is per pancake.
Yield: Makes about 8 pancakes; 2 to 3 servings
