You might be able to tell that I’m on a little bit of a baking bender lately. Maybe it’s the cold weather (for LA!–I know, I know; I’ve become pathetically warm blooded, as they say), but I keep finding every excuse to whip up some batter and fire up the oven. Bran muffins seemed like just the thing the other day, when I needed something portable and breakfast-y for an early morning drive
Hi, my name is Piper, and I am a card-carrying pumpkin-aholic. From late August through January every year, I don’t need any excuse to bake with pumpkin. Waffles, creme brûlée, cake, cheesecake, cookies, what-have-you, if it’s a sweet treat, I always think, “But wouldn’t it be better if it were pumpkin?”
Pumpkin is one of those ingredients that we go absolutely nuts for during the few months of the year when it’s available. These delectable, tender, buttery pancakes make excellent use of this seasonal specialty. The spiced maple syrup is just the icing on the (pan)cake! These are perfect for making a holiday breakfast truly special.
