Do you eat breakfast? If not, you don’t know what you’re missing! I need a quick breakfast to get me ready for the work day. One of my go-to choices is this Pecan Pumpkin Hotcakes recipe. I love the pecan and pumpkin flavor combination.
My husband Jim and I both work during the week and time for breakfast in the morning is limited. One of the things I like about these hotcakes is they can be made in advance. Making these hotcakes on the weekend, when I have more time, works great! I freeze them in packages of two so they are available any time during the week.
These hotcakes mix up pretty quickly and the almond butter adds to the nutty flavor. Baking them is easy. You simply put a 1/3 cup scoop of batter, for each hotcake, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 12 – 16 minutes.
I really should double the recipe and bake two pans instead of one.
Since time is limited in the morning, I do as much prep work as I can the night before. I get the Keurig filled with water, set out k-cups®, and take the hotcakes out of the freezer to defrost in the refrigerator overnight.
In the morning, we pop a hotcake in the microwave on high for 30 seconds and it’s ready to go. Jim likes his with syrup, but I prefer mine plain. I’ve tried them with both syrup and jam, but I really like the simple nutty flavor without any toppings.
These tasty hotcakes are filling and go great with coffee, tea or your beverage of choice. Give these Pecan Pumpkin Hotcakes a try, and find out why we enjoy them several times a week.
