Pumpkin Pancakes and Buttermilk Vanilla Syrup

Tom's family makes these delicious pancakes and he brought the recipe with him to school. I'm so glad he shared, and you will be too when you try them!

1 C. Pumpkin mix
1.5 C. pancake mix
1 t. vanilla
.5 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
.5 C water - you can add more to get the consistency of batter you want

Serves about 4/5 people.

Top it with this delicious syrup!

Buttermilk Vanilla syrup
1 C. butter
2 C. sugar
2 T Karo syrup
.5 C buttermilk
1 t. vanilla
.5 t baking soda

1. Dissolve butter, sugar, Karo syrup, and buttermilk on medium
2. Bring to a boil for 2-4 minutes
3. Remove from heat
4. Immediately add vanilla and baking soda

For those who have never made a buttermilk syrup, it's kind of a fun thing to let your kids watch or even help pour in the baking soda; it reacts with the ingredients and bubbles up. Kind of a neat little edible science experiment!

Bon appetite!
