Saturday mornings used to be sorta lazy.
Meaning, there was time to get up, have some coffee, and the Mr. would make a "traditional" breakfast, as the cherubs like to tease him about.
But now, we have baseball and ballet and other what-nots that start earlier than I'd prefer
and our lazy Saturday breakfasts have sorta gotten . . . lazy.
But this morning, I decided to make pancakes before everybody scurried off to their activities.
Since both of my cherubs like pumpkin, I decided to do a quick pumpkin pancake.
I've posted before a quick pumpkin waffle and a pancake, but this is even easier!
That's great for a Saturday breakfast!
Pumpkin Soda Pancakes
2 cups buttermilk pancake mix
1 bottle pumpkin pie soda
Heat a pan or griddle with a bit of oil or Pam.
In a bowl, stir together the pancake mix and enough soda to make the batter the consistency it should be. I used nearly the entire bottle . . .there may have been 2 or 3 drinks left in the bottle. Stir well.
Drop by 1/4 cupful onto the hot pan or griddle. Cook until bubbly and "dry" around the edges. Flip over and cook on the other side until golden brown.
Serve the pancakes warm with maple syrup; but I actually liked it plain!
