Winter arrived with a vengeance. One day I was happily raking leaves, enjoying the simple pleasures of autumn and the next day I woke up to this: An icy, freezing, slippery blizzard. I was not prepared. I need new tires. I need a new car. My mums are buried under a fluffy white blanket. My pumpkins are frozen to the steps. I drove the kids to school watching cars slip through intersections. A long commute becomes longer. Amazon Prime becomes my friend.
This is the post I started exactly one month ago today. Winter came and it stayed. Eventually I was able to scrape the pumpkins off of the sidewalk and shimmy my pots inside long enough for them to thaw. We got the Christmas tree up and, while I haven't started the Christmas cards yet, preparations are underway.
Even during the Christmas season, I still love the warmth of pumpkin spice. This easy recipe for Pumpkin Spice Pancakes is perfect for every day or for a crowd.
While I would never use pumpkin pie filling to make an actual pie (doesn't taste like mom's),
it's a great shortcut for pancakes!
Just remember 3 - 2 - 1.
Three cups of buttermilk pancake mix.
Two cups of water.
One cup of pumpkin pie filling.
The syrup is calling!
2-Ingredient Pumpkin Pancakes
by Rachel @ Simple Girl
3 cups Complete Buttermilk Pancake Mix (Like Krusteaz)
2 cups of water (does not count as an ingredient!)
1 cup pumpkin pie mix (Not pureed pumpkin which doesn't have the spices)
Mix together until just combined. Spoon 1/4 cup portions onto medium hot griddle. Flip when they start to bubble on top. But you knew that.
