“Organic” means “eat as many as you want,” right?!
When I was a kid, my dad was the breakfast master. Whether he was ruling the pancake griddle with a golden spatula, whipping up a batch of homemade Belgian waffles, or frying up a plate full of bacon that defied the laws of physics (equally crispy and chewy!), there wasn’t a dish my dad hadn’t mastered.
Unfortunately, while I definitely did inherit my dad’s love for the most important meal of the day… I definitely didn’t inherit his culinary skill set. Especially when it comes to one of my favorite breakfast staples of all: pancakes.
Try as I might, my pancake-making efforts almost always result in my kitchen becoming a batter-covered battlefield. And though my skills have slowly started to improve over the years, cooking up these bad boys is still a major labor of love.
Still, it’s a labor I’m willing to take on for the sake of one of my all-time fall favorites: pumpkin pancakes!
Luckily for me, Foodstirs heard my cries of pancake-challenged anguish and they offered to send me a rescue stash of their Sunday Stacks pancake mix. This stuff puts the “easy” in “Easy Like Sunday Morning.”
You can follow the recipe on the back of the box for a batch of picture-perfect pancakes, or you can make one tiny little modification to Fall-ify your Sunday Stacks.
Spoiler alert: the secret ingredient is canned pumpkin. Revolutionary, right?
Here’s what you need:
- 1 Box of Foodstirs Organic Sunday Stacks Pancake Mix
- 1/2 can Libby’s Organic Pumpkin
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 1/3 cup milk
Foodstirs’ recipe calls for adding a scoop of yogurt to the mix… I left this out and used the pumpkin instead. And since I like my pancakes extra pumpkin-y, I helped myself to a hearty scoop (about half of the can).
Besides this addition, I didn’t stray from the box recipe: I mixed together the melted butter, milk, dry mix and pumpkin…
…then I ladled into a hot skillet coated with butter.
