Funny story. As you may know, I’ve been super excited that it’s pumpkin time. One week in and I’ve already made Pumpkin Bread, and Pumpkin Chia Oatmeal 4 times. So, yesterday (Saturday), it was time. I had waited long enough. Bring on the Pumpkin Pancakes! We were in a little bit of a hurry, as we were heading out to see our nephew play football, but I simply could not wait one more day.
I gathered all the ingredients, and started pouring and measuring like crazy…multi-tasking at its best. I even took out the camera so I could take pretty pictures along the way. The batter looked a little runnier than I had remembered, but it had been a year since I had last made them. I didn’t think anymore of it. I left my husband in charge, while I ran upstairs to take a shower. When I came back down, he was busy trying to scrape the remnants of a poorly flipped pancake off the griddle. I rolled my eyes. Rookie. I quickly took over.
Within minutes, I handed him a plate full of suspiciously flat pancakes, and he started eating. Then he added more syrup. And then a little more syrup. But, he kept on eating. While I was flipping the next pancake, a piece broke off. Not able to stand the waiting any longer, I shoved it into my mouth. Chewed. And chewed. But I could not swallow it. Most disgusting tasting pancake I have ever eaten. And there is my honey, choking them down, not wanting to say anything. What a guy.
Long story short, the rest of the batter went down the garbage disposal, and I quickly whipped up some Pumpkin Chia Oatmeal to take with me on the road.
This troubled me all day. I could not figure out where I had gone wrong. All I can say is nothing good comes of multi-tasking while creating in the kitchen. At least not for me. At my age.
This morning I felt a strong need to redeem myself. Hubby headed off to church early, and I went to work whipping up another batch of pancakes. Totally nailed it. Even texted the honey a picture of my pancakes so he would come back home between services for a quick bite. (And pick me up…I’m kinda sneaky that way.)
So here you have it, Vegan Pumpkin Spice Pancakes compliments of Vegenista, a recipe I followed to the letter! Or at least I followed it to the letter today. That probably wasn’t the case yesterday. Alright, alright…I made a few minor changes today too, but thankfully they turned out absolutely scrumptious!
