Pumpkin Pancakes (w/ Cinnamon Syrup)

More pumpkin, I know... BUT these are delicious! And easy! AND we had them for dinner tonight. The cinnamon syrup is amazing and the perfect compliment to these pancakes. Make them, your stomach will thank you and your house will smell like the holidays :)

Makes 13-15 pancakes

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
6 tablespoons (packed) brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of ground cloves
Dash of nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups buttermilk
3/4 cup canned solid pack pumpkin
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, melted

Mix first 9 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Whisk buttermilk, pumpkin, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter in medium bowl until well blended. Add to dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.

Spray a skillet or griddle with cooking spray. Working in batches, drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into skillet or griddle. Cook pancakes until bubbles form on top and bottoms are golden brown, about 2 1/2 minutes. Turn pancakes over. Cook until bottoms are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cinnamon Syrup

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup water

Stir together dry ingredients in a small saucepan. Then add water and vanilla. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring often. Continue boiling and stir until mixture thickens to syrup consistency. About 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand a few minutes before serving.

Serve pancakes hot with cinnamon syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.

Or if you're feeling lazy...

This mix is delicious. I have some in our cupboard. Trader Joe's baby :)

I love Trader Joes! Too bad we don't have one of those in Utah. By the way, I am Callie Crum's little sister. She told me about your blog and I just wanted to let you know that I use it all the time and I've loved everything I've made from your recipes, so thank you:)
