September 29, 2017

Pumpkin Pancakes

1¼ cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

pinch of ground clove

½ teaspoon sea salt

4 eggs, separated

8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

¾ cup pumpkin puree

1 ¼ cup whole milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

Whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and clove until combined in a large bowl.

Separate the eggs.

Whisk the yolks with the melted butter in a medium sized bowl. Stir in the pumpkin puree, milk and vanilla.

Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff, about 2 minutes.

Mix the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture. Gently stir 1/3 of the beaten egg whites into the pumpkin mixture. Carefully fold in the remaining egg whites.

Make three-inch pancakes with a ¼-cup measuring cup, and cook in a lightly buttered cast iron skillet or griddle. Serve with apple cider syrup.

Yield about 24 pancakes.

    Could you share the apple cider syrup recipe? Or is that just reduced apple cider?

      Lauren, I actually buy my cider syrup. Wonderful stuff. It’s a classic American product with a long tradition – and the subject of my next column in the November issue of Town and Country Magazine.
