Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice…without being too, too sweet!
Don’t run away if you’re not a Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte fan!
Although I do occasionally indulge in a “PSL,” they are a bit too sweet for me to drink the whole thing or to buy one very often.
In creating these pancakes, I kept the sugar in check to let the pumpkin and spice have their moment in the Fall spotlight. The subdued sweetness also leaves plenty of room to add your favorite maple syrup. (Immediately having thoughts of, “If You Give a Pig a Pancake” over here… anyone else? Anyone?)
When I think of Fall, the spices that immediately come to my mind are cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves – so that’s exactly what I used! Don’t be surprised if you find yourself sticking your head down in the batter bowl as you cook – the aroma is pretty irresistible!
