    1 large egg
    2/3 C. Unbleached White Flour
    1/3 C. Whole Wheat Flour
    1 C. Low-fat or Fat-free Buttermilk
    1 Tbs. Packed Brown Sugar
    1/2 C. Pumpkin - I usually use canned
    2 Tbs. Flax Seed Meal
    2 Tbs. Wheat Germ
    1/4 tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. Baking Powder
    1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
    1/2 - 1 tsp. Cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
    1 tsp. Vanilla


Beat egg in large bowl with hand mixer until fluffy.
Add in remaining ingredients and mix until just blended. If the batter seems a bit thick add a couple of Tbs. of lowfat milk to thin.
I also think it actually helps the batter to sit for a few minutes before making the cakes.
Heat large skillet over medium heat. grease the griddle with butter or I spray with canola oil then wipe evenly around my iron skillet with a paper towel.
Pour batter on skillet in 1/4 cup or less portions.
When the batter on top is puffing up a bit and the edges appear to pull away (2 minutes or so) flip the cakes and cook until the centers feel done to the touch.
We eat our pancakes topped with low-fat cream cheese and a dusting of powdered sugar.

  • My kids liked them. I found these to be a tad on the bland side. I even added cloves & pumpkin spice. I guess I'm used to using 100% whole wheat flour with my breads. - 11/4/08
