Summer Fair - Pumpkin Pie Pancakes!

Gen X Quilters Summer Fair

AnneMarie at Gen X Quilters is hosting Summer Fair: A Quilt and Recipe Show.  I haven't finished a quilt yet, so I don't have an entry for that category.  However, I do have a recipe to share with you!

You know that can of pumpkin pie mix that gets bought by mistake, then sits in cupboard until it gets donated or tossed?  (That's what usually happens here.)  That darn can of pie mix sat in the cupboard, taunting us, daring us to find a use for it.  So we did.  We had a pumpkin muffin recipe that we liked, but wanted something that was quicker, so we decided to throw some pumpkin in the pancake batter.  We love the results and only rarely make pancakes without pumpkin now.  Puppy Boy, who's a picky eater, devours these!  

Many of you may be familiar with buckwheat, but not sorghum flour.  Puppy Boy and I are gluten free for health reasons, this means we don't eat anything with wheat, rye, or barley.  Sorghum flour can be difficult to find, so feel free to substitute a different flour of your choice if you can't find it, or if you choose not to use it.

OMG those look divine! That picture belongs in a cookbook! I'm bookmarking this page so I can try them. It's funny, I love pumpkin in pretty much everything BUT pumpkin pie!

Funny, we just made pumpkin pancakes earlier this week. Mine was some fresh pumpkin that I had frozen last year, and I have one back left. I want to use it up before we get NEW fresh pumpkin next month.
