Pumpkin Pancakes with Cranberry Maple Syrup @diethood

I bet you have your Thanksgiving menu all done up and ready to go, just waiting for you to get started.

Do you see a breakfast item on that menu? What are you gonna serve the noise-makers while you prep that big turkey? You know they’re about to start asking, “Is dinner ready!?!?!”.

What are you gonna do?!

Don’t worry, I got you covered.

To quiet them down all you need to do is reach for that Jiffy box and prepare these Pumpkin Pancakes with all those other Thanksgiving ingredients you’ve got sitting in front of you.

You see, I love homemade pancakes, the kind that fluff up and are always delicious, but this is Thanksgiving Day we’re talking about. The day where most things on that table are made from scratch and breakfast is the last thing that we think of, or have time for. Thus a semi-homemade pancake is the next best thing. With pumpkin!

Cranberry Maple Syrup

Then there’s the syrup. I love this Cranberry Maple Syrup. I always make it the day after Thanksgiving with the leftover cranberry sauce. There’s nothing to it… all you do is add pure maple syrup to the cranberry sauce and give it a whirl in the food processor or blender.

    Just wanted to let you know that I made these for Halloween dinner before Trick-or-Treat three or four years ago. We always have them with bacon and broccoli. (Broccoli is our kids’ favorite, and who doesn’t love bacon?!?) It simply isn’t Halloween without your delicious pancakes. The kids look forward to it and won’t hear of anything else before their adventures begin. Makes meal planning easy for one night a year. 😉

    Hope you don’t mind – I loved your use of cranberries so I added it to my food photo site (Food Foto Gallery) for all to see. Attribution was given to you and I hope that you gain a few new visitors, as well.

    you’re right. there’s no breakfast on my menu. I figured we’ll have oatmeal like on a regular week morning but I might attempt to make pancakes since you got me craving some
