Physical Challenge:
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 3/4 cups milk or soy milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • whipped cream or whipped topping substitute
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine Dry Ingredients

Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, spices, and salt in a large bowl.

Combine Wet Ingredients

In a small bowl, stir together egg, vanilla, pumpkin, milk, and vegetable oil until well mixed.

Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients

Add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring just until all the dry ingredients are moist and mixed in. The batter will be thick and lumpy.

Cook Pancakes
  • Spray a griddle or skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat on medium heat.
  • Pour batter (about 1/4 cup for each pancake) onto hot griddle. Cook until pancake is golden brown on the bottom, then flip and cook until the other side is browned.
Add Stripes

Just before eating, top pancakes with whipped cream "stripes" and a sprinkling of nutmeg. Note: The whipped cream stripes melt quickly on hot pancakes, so they won’t last long. But then, neither will the pancakes!

 

Makes 12 pancakes.
