Do you ever come across a recipe and totally disregard it because you think it doesn't follow your flavor profile, might be too time consuming, or whichever mood you find yourself in at the moment just has you disregarding delicious recipes that you should otherwise consider? That was this recipe for me.
My sister-in-law was drooling over the recipe in Saveur magazine and I wanted to drool, too. However, the drool just didn't flow, but ever the competitor, I knew I had to make said recipe because I needed to be first to eat the drool-worthy creation.
I'm not sure if my sister-in-law ever got around to making Pumpkin Spice Pancakes, but I finally did. And the household applauded. Something about my house being a routine pancake house. Needless to say, Pumpkin Spice Pancakes are whipped up in my kitchen several times during the fall season. I hope the same for your kitchen.
Hmmm. Not sure what to say about this photo other than, yep...here are some ingredients on my counter. Ready to call-to attention. The original recipe called for 1 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup milk. Heavy cream doesn't regularly hang out in my fridge, but 1/2 & 1/2 does....so you can guess what happened. One cup 1/2 & 1/2 and 1/2 cup milk. I think you could use any combo of milk, just so you use a total of 1 1/2 cups.
Lots o' spice in this pancake. I didn't heap, but if you so chose to heap, you shall heap generously.
