Pumpkin Pancakes & Blog-Award

After making my pumpkin bread, I still had loads of pumpkin puree leftover. I found a few recipes that use pumpkin puree and today I tried out one of them. I found the recipe on a beautiful food-blog called 6 Bittersweets. I saw it a while back and I've been meaning to try it out ever since! I mean how delicious does it sound?! It’s a Martha recipe. The pancakes tasted alright. They were flavorful, but were very squishy inside which was a bit weird. Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Aw sorry these didn't work out as well for ya. The texture is definitely a bit different, but I also make sure to keep my stove a bit lower to cook them through. And you definitely deserve the award. For one, you make Pierre Herme recipes seem halfway approachable, which is a feat =p.

I love how you rate your post foods, I have been trying different pumpkin pancake recipes ...not winner yet. I want tall, fluffy cakey pancakes. They keep ending up thin, dense and squishy like you said. Must be the pumpkin.
