pumpkin pancakes with chocolate filling

Pumpkin Pancakes

Makes 18 pancakes

 

1 cup white flour

1/2 cup whole wheat

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1 large egg

1 1/4 cup whole milk

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing the pan

1 cup pumpkin puree, canned

 

Chocolate filling:

1 cup cream cheese

2 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp honey

 

1. Sift the first six ingredients for pancakes in a bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients for pancakes.

3. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet until combined; it is OK if there are some lumps.

4. Heat a large sauté pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with oil.

5. Drop about 2 tbsp of the pancake mixture onto the griddle and cook for two minutes on each side, until golden.

6. Set aside and allow to cool.

7. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the filling until smooth.

8. Place 1 tbsp of the filling between two pancakes to make a sammie.

9. Continue to make the rest of the sammies.

10. Serve.

 

*Tip: use an ice cream scooper to drop the pancake batter onto the griddle for perfectly round pancakes
