I was approached to do a review/giveaway for Mrs. Butterworth’s and Log Cabin Syrup which I thought was really neat. Since it’s the fall time and I wanted to take the review up a notch I decided to make my own pumpkin pancake’s and syrup recipes! Everything’s better with pumpkin am I right? I even splurge and have pumpkin coffee and creamer in the fall time so this seemed like a no brainer for me.
Before I get to the recipes that will make you want to eat pancakes with syrup at every meal – seriously they turned out that good. I wanted to first talk about my syrup choices Mrs. Butterworth’s and Log Cabin. Did you know that Log Cabin has been around for 120 years and was named after our president Abraham Lincoln since he grew up in a log cabin? How neat is that? They even have a new line out called Log Cabin All Natural syrup and pancake mix that is made with whole grains and 3 grams of fiber. I normally like to get the sugar free kind but with recipe I went hard core and got the normal flavor which is still OK since it contains No High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Mrs. Butterworth’s is another family favorite syrup and was recently rated by Epicurious the best overall pancake syrup. My kid’s love it making me love it alot. Mrs. Butterworth’s has been around since 1967 and has never been shy about letting you know just how sweet, thick and delicious their syrup is. Right now you can get a $1 coupon on their facebook page so definitely check them out!
- 2 1/2 cups pancake mix both Log Cabin and Mrs. Butterworth’s has a great one.
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
- 1 egg
- 1 3/4 cup milk
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 cup of pumpkin
Mix altogether in a bowl and then cook in batches on a skillet. This recipe makes alot of pancakes. The kiddos were so excited b/c I made these for dinner. Who doesn’t love the occasional breakfast for dinner nights. The kids and I had 2 each and there were about 10 more left over. You can wrap them in parchment paper and then put into a ziploc bag and freeze these babies. Just pop them in the microwave when you’re ready to eat them and they come out perfect. They’ll also last a couple of days in the fridge. I microwaved them the next morning for breakfast for about a minute.
- 1/2 cup of Log Cabin Syrup
- 2 tbsp milk
- 1/4 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp of allspice
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
Mix 4 ingredients together and then add the pumpkin and sugar for easier blending. I used a wisk. This syrup is thick, rich and out of this world. I warmed the left overs the next morning for about a minute and it was so good!
I have family coming for a visit this weekend and you better believe I will be making this for breakfast. They were the best pancakes I have ever made or eaten. They came out super fluffy and delicious. The syrup was amazing. You only need alittle and I would eat it on French Toast, waffles or anything where you would normally use syrup.
