Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, pumpkin butter, egg, oil and vinegar until well blended. Add to dry ingredients and whisk just until smooth. Pour batter by ¼ cupful onto greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, to make sauce, melt butter in a large skillet. Add bananas and pecans and sauté 2 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together lemon curd and water. Add to skillet and cook 2 minutes or until sauce is bubbly. Serve sauce over pancakes. Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
  3. NOTE: If you can’t find Dickinson’s Country Pumpkin Butter here is a recipe you can try.
  5. 2 TB light brown sugar, packed.
  6. 1 TB granulated sugar.
  7. 1/4 tsp allspice.
  8. 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
  9. 1/8 tsp cloves.
  10. 1/8 tsp fresh ground nutmeg.
  11. 1/8 tsp ginger.
  12. 2 TB water.
  13. 3/4 cup, packed pumpkin puree (slightly less than half of a 15-ounce can) 180g.
  14. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine all ingredients except the pumpkin and mix well. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 2 minutes or until the sugars are melted. Stir, add pumpkin, beat lightly and microwave, loosely covered, for another 3 minutes. It will be very hot!
  15. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze for up to two months.
