Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater 2

It's definitely the time of year 
when pumpkin spice anything sounds good to me.

I baked Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes 
this week for the Stashbusters Club at the Fig Leaf.

Stashbusters is a wonderful baking outlet.  It
gives me an opportunity to try new cupcake recipes.
Of course, the true purpose is get our wonderful 
quilting friends into and working with their stashes.
But I know everyone enjoys seeing what I'll bake next.

I found this recipe over at Annie Eats.  
I used a Caramel Buttercream frosting instead
of the whip cream on top.
The cupcakes were moist and had a wonderful pumpkin
spice flavor with a hint of espresso, 
almost like a fancy barista drink.

I couldn't stop with just one pumpkin treat this week, so I pulled out
one of my favorite fall pumpkin breakfast ideas.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
We love to have breakfast for dinner.
These pancakes are so tasty and would be a hit
for company or just for a "warm stay at home" breakfast.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Makes about 12 pancakes
1 ¼ cups flour
2 T. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
¾ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
Dash of ginger
Dash of cloves
1 cup milk
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 large egg
2 T. vegetable oil or melted butter
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In a liquid measuring cup, mix together the wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry and whisk together just until combined. (The batter may still have a few lumps).
Heat a greased skillet or griddle over medium heat. Once the griddle is hot, add 1/3 cup scoops of batter for each pancake. Serve with cinnamon sugar, maple syrup or whipped cream.

Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater will continue to
make and sample pumpkin recipes.
 My pumpkin recipe file folder has so many good ideas.
 I did find some canned pumpkin at Whole Foods this week
and stocked up on a few extra cans.
Until Next Time-
