Real Pumpkin Relationships
Over at GoodWordEditing, there's a question about whether on-line relationships are real. Or something like that.
I don't know what to say this morning except... what could be more real than pumpkin pancakes at the breakfast table, compliments of an exchange I had last night, with a real person named Eric.
He told me he modified this recipe, but was hesitant to say exactly how. After trying it this morning and modifying it myself, I understood. Lots of modifying! Here's my version...
Mix dry ingredients first:
• 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
• 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
In separate bowl, mix wet ingredients:
• 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
• 1 cup pumpkin puree
• 2 eggs
• 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients; stir until just blended. Cook on 375 degree griddle, until lightly browned.
Top with REAL maple syrup :) and REAL whipped cream. Yum. Happy Real Saturday.
(Shoot, now I have to go mow my Real Lawn.)

Addendum, from Eric, found in the Comment Box
Hesitant only because I just throw things in as I think they are needed and of course I don't write them down. (so yeah, sometimes the recipe changes). I also made a pumpkin spice maple syrup...
Pumpkin Spice Maple Syrup
1 c. maple syrup
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree, add your pie spices to your liking (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, etc).
Oh, I need to mow a lawn as well...but, well, it's a bit rainy outside...
