Luke's Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Butter

We're all friends here, right? Since we are, you will know how very much I love the Gilmore Girls. And I watch the episodes over and over. And it never gets old.
In Season 4 of the Gilmore Girls, Luke shocks Lorelei and Rory with Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Butter. Well folks, here they are. And if you are obsessive like me, you can watch the episode while enjoying these pancakes. And you have my permission to daydream about Luke eating them with you.

Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Butter
Adapted from Annie's Eats

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
¾ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground ginger
Pinch of ground cloves
1 cup milk
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 large egg
2 tbsp. vegetable oil

Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and spices in the bowl of a stand mixer. Combine the milk, pumpkin, egg and oil. Using the paddle attachment, slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry. Let the batter sit for about ten minutes.

Heat a skillet to make the pancakes. We like our pancakes a bit larger- but make them the size you prefer. Serve with maple syrup and cinnamon butter.

Cinnamon Butter
1 Stick of Butter
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. cinnamon

In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. I put the finished butter in parchment paper and roll it up, to create a roll of butter. Place the roll in the fridge or freezer for easy slicing.

Ack. Do you think I can add pumpkin to a gluten-free box of pancake mix? Or do I need to recreate from scratch with g-free flours?

Jen, I'm sorry! I was on a GF roll, wasn't I? Subbing should be fine- just watch the consistency. If it is too thick, add a little more oil and milk. Too thin, more mix.
