Ginger Pumpkin Pancakes

Do you ever find yourself so happy that you can’t sleep?  I am in a happy phase, which meant that I was up early this morning and making pancakes!  These are not light and fluffy, but dense and doughy.  Major cozy Sunday morning comfort food!  -Amanda

  1. oooh yum! I will be making these for brunch on Sunday 🙂 My meals lately are not blog worthy, lots of ‘student food’, brown rice and veggies and sandwiches (with all sort of spreads, ..hmm.. maybe I will do one on white bean spread). Thanks for updating the blog! Happy halloween for tomorrow. Julie xx

    • Me too, for the most part. 🙂 I made these beautiful chickpea crepes with caramelized onions and mushrooms on Sunday but forgot to take a picture! Oh well.
      Miss you and hope you have a wonderful Halloween!
