Pumpkin Pancakes with Sweet Apple Cider Syrup
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + standing Cook: 10 min.
Makes15 pancakes (1 cup syrup)
The pancakes have a good flavor. You could experiment with other spices in the pancake batter if you wanted to. I kept the pancake recipe the same both times I made it. I've made this recipe twice. I made the apple cider syrup per the directions the first time. It takes a very long time to "cook down." The second time I made it, I added some corn starch to help thicken the syrup. This worked very well, saved me 25 minutes of boiling, and I will do this in the future. The syrup flavor is very strong and very sweet. You don't need very much of it on your pancakes. Overall, it is a good recipe and one I will be making again.
The texture was fantastic and the pancakes would be a great crowd-pleaser (we did not make the syrup). However, the pumpkin and spice flavors were very mild. That was a good thing for me as I am not a huge pumpkin fan, but my husband was disappointed with the flavor strength.
These pancakes are wonderful! The syrup adds a perfect compliment to them. I made them for our Thanksgiving breakfast and my husband loves them.
We love pancakes and our house so I had to give this a try. The pancakes or super moist. The taste was delicious. I did not make this syrup and used maple syrup instead.
I have been making these from taste of home for years! We love them. They are my kids favorite. They are moist and tender and delicious. I don't usually make the syrup though. They are just fine with maple syrup.
I've always used table ready butternut type squash in this recipe, which is makes really yummy pancakes. Once I tried it with plain pumpkin and was sorely disappointed in the flavor.
My family and friends loved these pancakes. I doubled the recipe and made them for brunch. I made them on the griddle. They came together very easily. I added nutmeg and ground ginger to add extra spice. My family said they tasted like pumpkin pie and stood out over the eggs Benedict that was meant to be the star of the show! I took other reviewers advice and decided not to make the syrup. I served with a choice of reduced fat log cabin syrup or a dusting of powdered sugar. Both toppings were great.
This is a combined rating because I would give the pancakes but the syrup wasn't that great so I would give it 4 or maybe 3, 3 1/2? ;) I will be making the pancakes again and again and again! We prefer them with maple syrup but I may try them with cool whip next time... I am thinking it will be like the breakfast version of pumpkin pie!
It was good. I don't think the syrup set up right for me though. I did use light corn syrup
