  • 1 c plus 2 Tbsp real maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 C flour (I like to use half all purpose flour and half bread flour)
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 C pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 t pure vanilla
  • Butter for skillet, plus more for serving

Bring 1 cup maple syrup and 1/2 t pumpkin pie spice to a simmer over low heat. Set aside.
Whisk together flour, backing powder, baking soda, salt and remaining pumpkin pie spice.
In a separate bowl whisk together buttermilk, puree, egg, and vanilla.
Then gently mix the wet ingredients into the dry.

Heat a non stick pan over medium heat. Wipe a thin coat of butter to the inside surface. Pour 1/4 C of batter for each pancake.
Cook as usual. Wipe butter inside pan before pouring in more batter. Serve hot with butter and warm syrup. Squirt on a dollop of whipped cream if you wish.
