Pumpkin Pancakes + Cinnamon Syrup

I was craving something fall-ish for breakfast, so I decided to try to make homemade pumpkin pancakes from scratch.

The key ingredient – canned pumpkin. I like the organic version (which I pretty much only buy when it’s on sale).

I added walnuts to the batter while the pancakes were cooking.

And for protein, we had scrambled eggs with cheese on the side.

The pancakes came out ok, but I wasn’t 100% happy with them, so I won’t be sharing the recipe at this time.

The sauce was pretty awesome, though.

I made a cinnamon syrup sauce.

At first I was just going to heat up cinnamon with maple syrup, but when I realized I was low on maple syrup, I decided to adapt a recipe I’d seen awhile back from Giada.

Cinnamon Syrup

Adapted from this recipe by Giada DeLaurentis

Serves 2-4 (4 if you go light on the syrup, 2 if you go heavy)

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (you could use a little less if you don’t want the sauce too strong)

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan or butter warmer, combine sugar, water and cinnamon and whisk together. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Reduce to simmer.
  3. Simmer till liquid is reduced by about half.
  4. Allow to cool before serving (or serve warm, but not hot)

Enjoy!
