Pumpkin Pancakes

Good morning to a beautiful Monday and is a holiday! No school and Mummy can laze in bed slightly longer hehehe....Wanna try this beautiful sunshine looking pancakes for your family? Actually I adapted a recipe called potato waffles from Martha Stewart  and I replaced the mashed potato with fresh pumpkin puree. And yes initial plan was to make waffle too but plan flopped hahaha....The pumpkin batter was rather runny and hard to cook in my waffle machine, making rather a mess as it all stuck to the machine >.<" So in the end I cooked the batter into pancakes instead! 

Still trying to master my skill of cooking a nice poached egg, not too bad for this time :) 

golden fluffy pumpkin pancakes dipping in runny yolks...yumz!!

  • 350gm peeled pumpkin, steamed & mashed
  • 250gm plain flour 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 400ml buttermilk
  • 120gm butter, melted

  1. Sift flour into a large bowl. Stir in sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt into the flour evenly
  2. Whisk egg yolks, buttermilk and butter together. Pour into flour mixture and stir just till combined. Mix in mashed pumpkin.
  3. In another clean bowl, beat egg whites with a electric mixer until stiff peak formed. Fold the meringue into batter.
  4. Lightly grease a non stick pan, ladle about 1/4 cup batter and pour into pan. Cook over medium low heat till edge is just set. Flip and cook the other side briefly. Repeat till batter finish. Serve warm with seared asparagus, grilled bacon and poached egg!

Hi Peng,
You are very creative in the sense that even though your waffles flopped, you still managed to turn them into pumpkin pancakes. Thumbs up! And thank you for your submission to MTR #3 - Taste of Autumn.
