Taste Tested: Pumpkin Pancakes

This week, Jillian made use of local pumpkin leftovers to make a sweet weekend breakfast perfect for fall!


“What to do with leftover roasted pumpkin from Thanksgiving? You have to make some pancakes, perfect for welcoming fall flavours into the kitchen! We purchased our roasting pumpkins from a local Southern Ontario farm and had just enough leftover after Thanksgiving baking to savour these great pancakes. Enjoy these pumpkin spiced pancakes with some sliced local apples cascading over the edges!”
