Pumpkin Praline Pancakes, Day 2, #Pumpkin Week

Welcome to Day #2 of Pumpkin Week, where a group of Foodie Bloggers have gathered to bring you everything Pumpkin.  Yesterday there were some great recipes shared.  You can find them right here.
Come back each day this week and join in the fun!!

Now, if you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that Frank is in charge of the pancakes that are made in this household.  He is very particular about his pancakes as I shared with you here.  So this morning he made his batter as always and then I gave him my spiced pumpkin puree to mix in and chopped pecans to add.  They were delicious!!

He made his batter according to the directions on Aunt Jemima Original Recipe Mix, using melted butter instead of oil and then adding the spiced pumpkin puree that I provided.

He then sprinkled in the pecans, one at a time, just like he does with blueberries.

Cooked to perfection and delicious.
Like a mouthful of Pumpkin Praline Pie in each bite.

  1. These sound FANTASTIC!! My hubby was asking for pumpkin waffles last weekend (but the waffle maker was packed up!) I'm going to have to pull this one up when we're unpacked at the new house. :)

    1. I so admire that you are still able to participate in this event amidst your move. Very impressive.

  2. Oh yummy! We are having pancakes for dinner tonight. But they won't be fancy like these....and if Frank would want to come over I'd let him make them....LOL

    1. You would have to Paula because he doesn't allow anyone else to make them LOL

  3. I love pancakes and waffles with nuts in them. Great idea to have pumpkin in there too.

  4. I want a stack of these for breakfast today!
