Pumpkin Pancakes are a Popular Dish

“Oh how we love pumpkin season. You did know this gourd-ish squash has its own season, right? Winter, Spring, Summer, Pumpkin…. We anxiously anticipate it every year.” –Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer, October 2010 Heidi’s pumpkin pancakes are a favorite fall treat among guests at the Iris Inn, and it’s easy to see why—seasonal flavors of cinnamon and cloves, a light, fluffy texture, and warmth for the stomach on a chilly morning. If you’d like a taste of our B&B in your own home, then indulge in this recipe for Heidi’s Famous Pumpkin Pancakes: Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 3/4 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1/2 Teaspoon ground cloves 1/2 cup canned pumpkin 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 2 cups buttermilk 1/4 cup vegetable oil Directions: Combine first 8 ingredients, and stir well.
