Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Makes approximately 10 to 12 5-inch pancakes.

In an appropriate sized bowl add:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 to 4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to taste
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin spice to taste

Mix the contents evenly. In a different bowl add:

3 tablespoons of melted butter
1 large egg
1 to 1 1/4 cups of milk ( I use 2%, but use what you have on hand)

Mix evenly and then combine with the dry ingredients. The batter will be fairly thin so use less milk if you prefer thicker batter.

Near sea level I adjust my stove top gas range to 1/3rd past medium and I cook each side for no more than 1 minute, more like 45 seconds.  I get between 10 and 12 pancakes per batch, each about 5 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick.

I use real maple syrup from Maine. To me the pancakes smell of the holidays, the pumpkin spice is aromatic and the taste is like cinnamon roll.
