This recipe from “JBird1983″ took the top prize in our Pumpkin recipe contest. The star ingredient was used in both the pancakes and the butter for a seasonal breakfast treat.
Pumpkin puree is such a great ingredient because it not only adds wonderful flavor to a dish, it also makes recipes like pancakes or baked goods incredibly moist. Just remember to read the can carefully when you pick it up off the store shelf. Often the 100% pure pumpkin puree is right next to the can of pumpkin pie filling, which has sugar and spices already added. The labels can look similar, so keep your eyes peeled!
What really takes this winning recipe over the edge is the Honey Pumpkin Butter. Believe me, any you have leftover from the pancakes you will want to save and spread on your toast the next morning. Softened butter is whipped with pumpkin puree, honey and cinnamon – how can you go wrong!
