Tasteful Tuesday: Pumpkin Pancakes (with Pumpkin Butter)

Tuesday, October 8th, 2019

We’re starting today off with fluffy pumpkin pancakes topped with Sturbridge Yankee Workshop exclusive Pumpkin Butter. This recipe builds upon our Homemade Pancake recipe with a few spices and of course, pumpkin puree, incorporated into the batter. In addition to the butter, these pancakes also taste great with whipped cream, Maine Maple Syrup, and if you are a chocolate lover, we definitely recommend adding chocolate chips to the batter before cooking.

Pumpkin Butter | Made in New England | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop ExclusiveWhat You’ll Need:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons butter,
    melted and slightly cooled
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • Pumpkin Butter
  • Whipped cream, Maine Maple Syrup, caramel, or other desired toppings (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon (for very fluffy pancakes, we recommend sifting twice or thrice).
  2. Add about half of the milk to the flour mixture, as well as the egg, and mix. Slowly pour and incorporate the remaining milk. Add vanilla extract, the melted butter and pumpkin puree; mix until completely combined.
  3. Heat a lightly buttered frying pan over medium high heat and pour or scoop the batter onto the frying pan, using about 1/2 cup for each pancake.
  4. Once both sides are browned (look for small bubbles before flipping!) serve hot with Pumpkin Butter and other desired toppings. Enjoy!

Tasteful Tuesday: Blueberry-Banana Milkshake

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

A milkshake recipe in September? If you are here in New England you know that we are still looking for relief from the mugginess and heat, so a cool treat like this one is a must-have. If you can still find them, we recommend using fresh blueberries, but if you opt for frozen blueberries just keep in mind you may need to alter the amount of ice cream and/or milk (this recipe makes 1 serving).

What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup whole blueberries
  • 1/4 medium banana
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Place ice cream and milk into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until fully incorporated. Pour into a chilled glass and enjoy!
