Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes

15 Oct

Fall is finally in the air. Leaves are changing and the air has a chill in it. Front porches are decorated with pumpkins, mums, hay bales, and corn stalks. I love this time of year!

There is something about the fall that makes me want to bake. I love to make pumpkin bread and muffins, but sometimes I want something less heavy. These Pumpkin Buttermilk pancakes are wonderful. They are soft, fluffy and slightly sweet. My children love them with pure maple syrup and butter. You will love this recipe. One bite and you will taste autumn. Enjoy!

Freezer pancake mix!

24 Aug

With school on the horizon I know I will have to whip up some fast and healthy breakfasts for my 2 kiddos. I don’t usually have time to make pancakes from scratch on week days, but with this new trick, I can definitely do it!!! Take all the dry ingredients and put them in a freezer bag or large plastic container and mark the wet ingredients on the outside. This will allow you to cook up some healthy and delicious pancakes in a few minutes! I also froze tons of fruit on cookie sheets and then threw them in bags, so I have blueberries, sliced strawberries, sliced bananas, small chunks of apples etc at a moments notice. These are perfect thrown in your pancakes, as a topper or as a great snack for lunch boxes. Here is my basic pancake recipe broken down for you with variations. This will make 6 batches of 8 pancakes. If the dry mix is kept in the freezer it will last 4-6 months.

Zucchini Pancakes

12 Jul

Fresh vegetables are abundant this time of year and our zucchini plants are getting huge. My mother in law shared this recipe with me and I was so excited to try it. My kids were skeptical at first “what’s that green stuff?”, but they gobbled them up and wanted seconds. These are absolutely delicious! We used them as a main dish with a side salad, but they can be used as side dish or even as appetizers (if you make them smaller). We topped ours with light sour cream. Enjoy!

Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

14 Jun

I grew up eating Bisquick pancakes.  On weekend mornings my mom would whip together a pancake breakfast for our family and we would drench them in butter and syrup. But, when I had my first “from scratch” pancake at a restaurant in college, I was shocked how different the texture and flavor were. Ever since I have been on the search for a delicious, easy recipe that emulates those pancakes I had years ago. Since  blueberries are everywhere in the grocery store this time of year, I decided to make fresh pancakes for my kid’s breakfast this morning. They inhaled them and said they were the best ones I have ever made. I looked in my new favorite book “Wildly Affordable Organic” and used her recipe for pancakes, but I sweetened it up a little with extra sugar. They were awesome. Enjoy!!!!

Light and Fluffy Pancakes

11 Jan

I grew up eating bisquick pancakes.  On weekend mornings my mom would whip together a pancake breakfast for our family and we would drench them in butter and syrup. But, when I had my first “from scratch” pancake at a restaurant in college, I was shocked how different the texture and flavor were. Ever since I have been on the search for a delicious, easy recipe that emulates those pancakes I had years ago. Although I still make my kids bisquick pancakes, these are the ultimate weekend morning treat. For all of us that do not keep buttermilk in the fridge, you can create your own with items that are always in your pantry. Enjoy!
