The fragrance of warm spices fills the room when you make these creamy fall-inspired pancakes. A dollop of nutmeg whipped cream and a drizzle of maple syrup complete the dish.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with two kitchen towels stacked on top of each other and place in the oven. This will keep your cooked pancakes warm.

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, cloves, ginger and allspice together in a large bowl. Whisk the milk, eggs and pumpkin puree together in another bowl. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until ingredients are just incorporated and batter is thick (it's okay if there are some lumps). Let the batter rest for 5 minutes. 

Meanwhile, whip the heavy cream and nutmeg until stiff peaks form. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Ladle a heaping 1/2 cup of the batter into the skillet, spreading it into a 6-inch round. Cook, until pancakes are golden on the bottom and bubbly on top, about 1 minute 30 seconds. Flip the pancakes and cook until the second side is golden brown and the pancake is cooked through, about 1 minute 30 seconds more. The first few pancakes may seem sticky and hard to flip, but the pancakes will become easier to flip as you cook more of them.

Transfer the pancake to the baking sheet in the oven, tucking it between the two kitchen towels. Repeat with the remaining batter to make more pancakes. 

Place 3 pancakes on each plate and garnish with nutmeg whipped cream and pumpkin seeds. Serve with maple syrup.

Cook's Note

When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off the excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)
