Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup & Toasted Pecans

By now, my obsession with Pumpkin in the fall is well documented. I am in love with these pancakes. They are not overly sweet and the pumpkin flavor really comes through. The syrup with the cinnamon flavor and a hint of nutmeg is delicious with these pancakes. These would be perfect on a chilly fall or winter morning. 

Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup & Toasted Pecans
For the Pancakes:
2  cups flour
4  teaspoons baking powder
1/2  cup sugar
1/2  teaspoon salt
1  teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2  eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 can (15 ounce) pumpkin
1  teaspoon vanilla

For the Syrup:
1/2  cup white sugar
1/2  cup packed brown sugar
2  tablespoons flour
3/4  teaspoon cinnamon
1/8  teaspoon nutmeg
1  teaspoon vanilla
1  cup water

For Serving:
1  cup chopped pecan pieces, toasted

For the Pancakes:
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and pumpkin pie spice. In another bowl; combine the eggs, milk, pumpkin and vanilla and mix well. Add the wet ingredients to the large bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix well.

Heat a griddle or your electric skillet and drop about 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle that has been buttered or sprayed with cooking spray. I use my ice cream scoop. Cook about 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Serve with syrup and toasted pecans. Makes about 15 4" pancakes.

For the syrup:
In a small saucepan, combine all the syrup ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and continue simmering about 5 minutes until thickened. Set aside for 5 minutes before serving.

Cooks Note: To toast the pecans, place chopped pecans on a baking sheet and toast in a 350 degree oven for about 8-10 minutes.

Enjoy!
