Breakfast Weekend

You know that it is officially fall, when you husband gets up extra early on Sunday just to make a huge batch of Spicy Pumpkin Pancakes!  There is just something about the crisp mornings that gets you motivated to make a hearty holiday breakfast, well, my husband anyway.   To this non-morning person, Erik cooking the family a yummy breakfast is a huge treat!

It has been a breakfast weekend for us! On Saturday we actually went out for breakfast.  We have not done that in a long time!  One of the only restaurants in our little town, is this cute little cafe.  We have been told for awhile that we needed to try it.  So Saturday morning we set out for The Cutthroat Cafe in the heart of Bailey.  It was very yummy and even though we got numerous glares from the kidless couple that sat behind us, we had a great time!  

After breakfast, we drove to the grocery store to pick up a few things, one of which was some pumpkin.  Erik had this idea during our delicious breakfast out that he was going to do the same for us again tomorrow, but for a fraction of the price.  He was also going to step it up a notch, and make us pumpkin pancakes.  

Well Sunday morning came, and the anticipated pumpkin pancake wait was over.  They were so delicious!

  1. In 1-quart saucepan, heat syrup and butter until butter is melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in pecans.
  2. Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375°F. Grease griddle with vegetable oil if necessary. In medium bowl, stir all pancake ingredients until well blended. For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle.
  3. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook other sides until golden brown. Serve with syrup.

We didn't have pumpkin pie spice, so here is how you make it
This was my contribution to the breakfast, I mixed up three batches.  I did this before I had my cup of coffee, so my face wasn't the happiest, but I was smiling on the inside at my cute family excited for breakfast!

* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
* 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

We also did not eat them with syrup, we ate them with cream cheese frosting, oh, yes, we don't mess around!

1 Cup of Powdered sugar
4 oz or half a package of cream cheese
1/4 Cup of butter
1 Tbs of Vanilla

Blend until smooth

They were so amazing, we made three batches with the intent to freeze a bunch!  Only a few of them made it to the freezer.  Thats right, throughout the day, we consumed almost three batches of Spicy Pumpkin Pancakes.  I do not even want to think about our future food budget, all I know is we are in trouble!  Good thing pancakes are cheap!
