Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Brown Butter

Happy Fall Y'all!  For my centerpiece, I used my glass hurricane filled with popcorn and a candle nestled in.  I used three floral stems that are bent and overlapped for a whimsical candle ring. 
I made the machine quilted topper in the Big Star pattern. Won't you join me for a cup of tea or coffee and pumpkin pancakes?
This leaf plate is from Wal Mart, several years ago. 
Oh my goodness, is this ever a winning breakfast treat and perfect for Fall.  This recipe is courtesy of The October-November 2010 issue of Taste of Home.  The ricotta in the pancakes makes them so light and airy.  The cinnamon brown butter sauce is out of this world.  Treat yourself or your loved ones to this wonderful recipe. 

Cinnamon Brown Butter:

1/2 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped pecan, toasted

In a small heavy saucepan, cook butter over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.  Add the maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Remove from heat and stir in pecans. 


1 and 1/2 cups flour
2 T. brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 t. pumpkin pie spice (my addition!)
2 eggs
1 and 1/3 cups milk
3/4 cup canned pumpkin (you can freeze the rest)
1/2 cup ricotta cheese

 In a bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt. 

In another bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, pumpkin and ricotta cheese.  Stir into dry  ingredients  just until moistened.

Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top.  Cook second side until it is golden brown.

Serve with the cinnamon brown butter.

This recipe states that it makes 14, but it made 16 for me.  We ate some and I cooled the rest on a wire rack and then I froze the pancakes between sheets  of waxed paper and placed in a freeze-proof bag.

  1. Oh, I can't wait to make some pumpkin pancakes. Need to get pumpkin! Lovely table. xo

  2. I have your same plates as you probably already noticed....I love them! I can't wait to try your recipe!, sounds delicious!

  3. I would love to try pumpkin pancakes! I definitely have to make these. (I'm shocked to see that you can freeze the leftover pumpkin. I never knew that.)

  4. Beautifully delicious Kitty. I love this setting!

  5. Kitty~ I love your quilted topper and your pancakes sound delicious! Your popcorn filled hurricane is so clever too :)

  6. I'd love to join you for a pancake! Very nice fall table, Kitty.

  8. Oh My, I love the NEW INGREDIENT! I am printing this out to try this weekend. I am sure it will be a hit!
    I love your fall table. SO PRETTY and the use of the corn around the candle is so very clever...
    Thank you for sharing!
    Big Squishy Hugs to you,

  9. This is a perfect fall table! The handmade quilt is amazing (because you are SO good at it!), and the centerpiece is really creative. Popcorn doesn't last long enough around here for me to make a centerpiece out of it! I still prepare my popcorn on top of the stove. I never have taken to that microwave kind. It just tastes better when you can control the amount of oil, salt and butter! BEAUTIFUL pancakes that I am SO sure taste fantastic. The ricotta is something really different that I never would have thought of. I wish you were my next-door neighbor so that I could drop in (like they do on the sitcoms where NOBODY seems to ever lock their front OR back door!!!) and eat whenever I wanted. Sigh! :-)

  10. Your quilt topper and centerpiece are so pretty Kitty! The pancakes sound like a great fall treat and I love the leaf plate:@)
