Pumpkin Pie Stuffed Pancakes

I know, another pumpkin recipe.  But I feel like I am allowed to be slightly obsessed with pumpkin this time of year, as is everyone else.  I haven’t made pancakes in a while, and I had buttermilk I had to use up so woke up this weekend determined to make these.  Originally I was going to make pumpkin pancakes with chocolate chips (Mark’s favorite), but I decided there was not enough pumpkin in these.  That’s when I came up with the stuffed with “pumpkin pie” idea with the leftover pumpkin puree. I still made Mark’s with chocolate chips topped with maple syrup, but mine were regular pumpkin pancakes topped with nutella. I think mine was better.

This pumpkin filling would also be great with crepes.  I think I may just try that for tomorrow’s breakfast! Update: I tried this crepe recipe with the leftover pumpkin filling…to die for! Even better than the pancakes, in my opinion.

Pumpkin Pancake Ingredients:

  • 2 c. flour, sifter,
  • 3 tbsp powdered sugar, sifted
