PUMPKIN. PANCAKES. Need I say more? No? Ok, thanks! Seriously, guys these are so good and a great way to celebrate fall. I always have BIG plans in my head of all the traditions and things I want us to do during the holiday season but it’s hard with little ones. So, I have reigned it back a bit and have been doing simple yet memorable traditions for our family.
One, of our traditions is to make pumpkin pancakes. We only make them this time of year which makes them extra special. Personally, I love the idea of baking and cooking with my children but in reality the control freak in me starts twitching! Ha! This time it went really well and I was quite proud of how far I’ve come. When we opened the pumpkin spice jar, Hudson exclaimed, “Wow, it smells like Christmas, mommy!”. That just warmed my heart because it shows how a simple tradition is creating happy memories for our family. Wrong holiday/season, buddy, but close enough!
This recipe is very simple and delicious. I’m noting 1 cup of pumpkin puree in the recipe but I have added the whole can before and they were extra pumpkin-y and very very filling. You’ll just need to add a little more liquid to thin out the batter.
Hudson mixed all the ingredients and cooked half of the batter and Weston came in and cooked a couple more. He wasn’t involved in the mixing of ingredients because he was sick.
I’m looking forward to making them again very soon. Do you have any family traditions? Please share below!
