PUMPKIN SPICE, and everything nice…

IMG_3892And, by everything nice I mean pumpkin pancakes because I just couldn’t STAND the thought of debuting my newest spice without giving you, my favorite consumer, something to consume along with it.  Fair warning, though–unlike most food blogs you may read for inspiration, this pancake recipe isn’t really an exact recipe, however delightful they may be.

Delightful, of course, because of Special Spice Co’s one and only Pumpkin Spice blend!

You may be thinking, “why do I need a bottle of perfectly blended fall seasoning?”

Because there are unlimited desserts, breakfasts, side-dishes, main-dishes, beverages, and snacks you can improve by adding this spice.

“Okay, but why should I purchase from you?”

First, silly question, and shame on you.



Ahem–I’m so glad you asked! Here’s why:IMG_3893

  • Quality – I source organic spices from Monterey Bay Spice Co and other companies that specialize in bringing the utmost high-end flavor to the table.
  • Value – My spice costs less per ounce than the average container of pumpkin spice on the market. Plus because of its high quality, not as much is needed to really add flavor.
  • And – 100% of all profits from the sale of this spice will go families seeking to grow through adoption.  Adoption reminds me how I have been adopted by God and is an important cause to me because every child deserves a home and a family. Message me for more information, or if you’d like to partner with me to raise funds for your family’s adoption.

Now for the “recipe”:

  1. Buy Kroger brand Buttermilk Complete Pancake mix. Trust me, it’s the best.
  2. Mix some milk or water or both to make your batter the desired consistency.
  3. Add some pureed pumpkin, I usually do 1/4 cup per 10-12 pancake batch*
  4. Add 1/4-1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin spice.
  5. Blend together, but don’t over mix.
  6. Cook on a griddle.
  7. Top with butter, maple-syrup (mine is from Maine!), or even better a maple whipped cream.
  8. Devour!

*Has anyone noticed how small your pancakes have to be to squeeze 10-12 out of a batch? Normally whatever amount of mix they say makes 10-12 usually ends up yielding about six for me.
