Baked Pumpkin Pancakes – Quick and Easy
Baked Pumpkin Pancakes save my life on busy mornings when I just don’t have time to stand at the griddle making pancakes all morning long.
Today Branson has a math test where about flipping inequalities in an equation if he is multiplying or dividing both sides by a negative number. And an essay form history test on economics, culture, and climate, which I know more now than I did two days ago. Carson is giving a speech about how farmers are misunderstood and needed a little help. Payson has a test where on subjects and predicates. Needless to say, this morning was a major cram session at my house. I was listening to essays, printing farm quotes, and drilling Payson on how the subject in a sentence is who or what the sentence is about not what it does or is. FYI, I haven’t needed to flip and inequality, or multiply and equation by a negative number since I was in 7th grade…okay, maybe since Carson was in 7th grade math.
Anyway, if you are crazy busy in the mornings you need these Baked Pumpkin Pancakes as much as I do!

Anyone else treasure recipes that don’t require a million dishes. I used one bowl and one measuring cup to make these pancakes.
Add all the wet ingredients and the spices to a mixing bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Give it a quick stir.
The pancake batter might be a little lump. That’s okay.
Pour the batter in a greased half sheet baking pan.
