I bought my first pumpkin item since last fall. I saw that they had out their autumn stuff at Trader Joe’s — so I bought some pumpkin butter. Yummy. I’m looking for a really good pumpkin bread recipe…something healthy with maybe some flax seed and not too much sugar but plenty of spice and maybe some nuts and dried fruit. The search has begun. 🙂 Meanwhile, let the pumpkin recipes begin! Haven’t tried these yet but I plan to try them soon.

Pumpkin Pancakes

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk (I would add more, I think.)
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt, stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.


  1. Hi Annie, I just posted this on Jon’s blog, and I thought I’d say hi to you and cross post it here. It has been a long time since we’ve talked, visited, or emailed. Can you believe it has been 10 years since since this guy was born at your place in Oktoc?
    We just moved from Starkvegas to Austin a few months ago, and are adjusting to apartment life. Rufus is still doing well, but he is slowing down a bit, and getting restless inside the apartment nearly all day. It is difficult to get him to pose for pictures. Hope things are going well for y’all.

  2. dried cranberries are great in pumpkin bread. So are chocolate chips …

    My recipe has no flaxseed and has a good amt of sugar, so I won’t share.
