On Sunday morning the house was cool, and I slept in a few hours after Mark did. But, when I did wake up I knew what we would be having for breakfast, pumpkin pancakes.
The backyard with a cool breeze
Mark had already had cereal, but he was happy to have Second Breakfast. This was so good, and made with real, good ingredients, and easy; fall was received so well that I was told by Mark and my sister that the next time I would need to triple the recipe.
In one bowl mix the dry ingredients: spices, seasoning, flour, oats; in a separate bowl mix the milk, pumpkin apple sauce and in a small pan melt the butter.
Combine all ingredients with a spoon (or spatula as you see I did), you don’t need a mixer. The easy mixing is the morning workout! Also, around this time I take the maple syrup and butter out of the refrigerator; there is nothing worse than cold syrup and hard butter on delicious fresh pancakes!
Here’s the thing about pancakes: the first one always looks like blech. It doesn’t taste like blech, just looks like it. So if your first one looks a bit crazy, you can taste test it, because it will still taste amazing.
Grab a plate, some deliciously sweet and slightly savory pancakes, a pad of butter and a splash of syrup. Enjoy each bite of this fall treat; it is the best way to start the day!
