Fun fact about our family: My kids call their grandma Pumpkin. So, in the fall every time I hear my kids pointing out a pumpkin on someone’s front porch, my head is turning to look for my mom.
Pumpkin is also fun to cook with. (Am I talking about the vegetable or my mom? ) ; ) That’s why we made these yummy pumpkin Nutella pancakes.
I know I’m not the first person to ever combine pumpkin and Nutella into the perfect pancakes for fall. You can see Victoria’s from-scratch recipe here. But when I make pancakes I do it the way my grandmother always did, with good ol’ Bisquick. (Although, that might change very soon because my mom got me a wheat grinder for my birthday and I’m excited to try it.)
To make these pancakes, I doubled the recipe on the back of the Bisquick box, but instead of using 4 eggs, I used 3 eggs and 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree. Just the canned Libby’s stuff in the baking aisle works for me. Or you can see how I have used the microwave to make homemade pumpkin puree out of real pumpkins. They are kid and husband approved and I liked that, because of the pumpkin, they weren’t just empty carbs (granted, there were plenty of those too) and they kept the kids full until lunch time.
They also froze and reheated well.
Let me know if you try them!
