{CLOSED!} Blender Pumpkin Pie Pancakes {And Blender Giveaway!}

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 7, 2012

So I don’t make pancake batter in the blender very often. But we love Pumpkin Pancakes, but we don’t love that sometimes they turn out on the dense side. It’s hard to prevent that because pumpkin is really heavy and when you mix it into the batter, it makes the batter heavy.

But I was making a smoothie the other day and wondered if making the pumpkin pancake batter in the blender would aerate it some, so that the pancakes would turn out fluffier. Hmm.

After being mixed, I poured the batter straight onto a hot griddle…

I’ll let you decide for yourself, based on the photo below.

See how fluffy these turned out…I thought they were fluff-ilicious!

Also, I’d love for you to check out the video I created for SmartCookingGuide.com, making fresh fruit smoothies with this blender!
