Pumpkin pancakes

Pumpkin pancakes
I've been craving pumpkin pancakes for a while now. Not really sure why since it's not something I'm used to eating often... Guess it just got stuck in my head. My mum used to really love these when she was little so I made a special batch for the two of us!


  • 200 gr flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 5-7 tbsp sugar
  • pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  • 100 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 250 gr cooked butternut squash puree 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • butter

  1. Sieve flour together with sugar, salt and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2. Whisk milk and egg together. Pour half of the milk in the flour and whisk together till there are no lumps left. Then add the rest of the milk and whisk together.
  3. Now add the pumpkin puree and mix until well blended.
  4. Lastly add the baking powder and oil and whisk together. Leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Add milk No more lumps Mix in pumpkin puree
  6. Melt a bit of butter in frying pan and pour some batter in. Bake on one side until pancake no longer appears to be "wet". Then flip over and bake until golden brown on both sides.
  7.  Melt butter & pour in batter Bake on one side Golden brown
  8. Serve while still hot with honey or syrup.
