Silver Dollar Pumpkin Pancakes

Silver Dollar Pancakes refer to pancakes about two to three inches in diameter or about the size of the old silver dollar coins in the US and usually one serving is around 5 to 10 silver dollar pancakes ( as stated in wikipedia ). When i saw these little pancakes in Pioneer Woman's site, i think that they are really cute and also because of the pumpkin in there,  they look golden and beautiful. I have some frozen pumpkin puree in my freezer and took them down to the fridge 2 days earlier to make them this morning.

the batter..there will be lumps, it's okay..and using 1/8cup to scoop the batter..just nice size..

I cooked 2 or 3 pancakes on my non stick pan at one time, so it did took a little while to finish cooking all the batter. Pioneer Woman made some maple whipping cream to serve along with these pancakes but for me at the moment, just maple syrup alone is good enough. The pumpkin flavour was subtle and it was good! For step by step pictures which is always helpful and full recipe, you can refer to The Pioneer Woman .

Recipe ( from The Pioneer Woman )
half of the original recipe, makes around 22 mini pancakes
1.5 cup cake flour
1/2 tsp salt
1tbsp baking powder
1.5tbsp sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
1.5tsp vanilla essence
11/4 cup milk ( i did not use all )
1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice ( omitted )
maple syrup, maple whipped cream, butter, ice cream or nuts for serving ( optional )

* i did not use all the milk, i mixed till the consistency is pourable and not too thin as shown in the picture above. 

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar, baking powder , stir together and set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, egg, vanilla and milk. Slowly drizzle wet ingredients into dry ingredients, stirring gently with a spoon. Once combined, if mixture needs more moisture, add a little milk, batter should be pourable.

Heat a non stick pan over middle low to low heat, smear a little butter over the surface and drop tablespoon sized amount of batter onto the pan. ( i used 1/8 cup to scoop the batter ) Wait for about a minute the flip to the other side. Pancakes should be light golden brown and set in the middle. Remove from heat.

Serve with maple syrup or whipped cream.

  18. Hi Lena,

    Judging from the lovely golden colour of your pancakes, I reckon the name of these should be golden coin pancakes rather than the silver-dollar ones. LOL!

    Indeed that they look yummy. We should start selling these pancakes and transform these pancakes into real silver dollars :D
