Not only that, they’re easy to make. While your family is getting up from their various Thanksgiving-related hangovers (dehydration, alcohol, too much turkey), you can have these bad boys ready to pop on the griddle in no time at all. And everyone will be super stoked about these. They’re light and fluffy and a little crispy around the edges, and the butter and syrup will melt in your mouth. Plus, the colors are everything! They’re next level for this holiday weekend.
Pumpkin Spice Ombre Pancakes:
What You Need:
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 teaspoon of salt
4 heaping Tablespoons of sugar
2 1/4 cups of milk
3/4 cup of oil
2 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 Tablespoon of nutmeg
2 Tablespoons of baking powder
1 1/2 cups of pumpkin – divided – see instructions
1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
What You Do:
1 – First, in a large bowl, break the eggs, and beat them with a whisk until they are light lemon yellow, and fluffy.
2 – Then, add the milk, and stir.
3 – Add the oil, salt and sugar, and whisk together.
4 – Then, add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg, and whisk together just until ingredients are mixed. (batter may be a little lumpy, but that’s okay)
5 – Divide batter and you’ll need two cereal bowls – place an equal amount of batter in all of the bowls, leaving an equal amount of batter in the big bowl you mixed them in.
6 – And then, in the first cereal bowl, add 1/2 cup of pumpkin to the batter, and stir.
7 – In the second cereal bowl, add 1 cup of pumpkin, and stir – you should have the regular batter in the big bowl, a light batter in the first cereal bowl, and a darker batter in the second cereal bowl.
8 – Then, heat an electric griddle until butter melts and sizzles.
9 – With the heat on a medium low setting, drop the batter for the pancakes with either a ladle, or ice cream scoop, and cook until golden brown.
10 – Flip the pancakes with a pancake turner, and remove to a plate to serve, starting with the darkest color, the medium color, and the natural color on top.
11 – Drizzle with melted butter, whipped cream, and syrup.
12 – Follow the same instructions until all pancakes have been cooked and plated for breakfast. Enjoy!
NOTE: These can be served with whipped cream, fruit, bacon, hash-browns, cream cheese, or other favorite toppings.
