Saturdays Pumpkin Pancakes


This recipe is actually a pretty popular one with our little family. Typically one would seperate the egg whites from the yolks, whip the egg whites to stiff peaks, then fold them into the rest of the batter. Well, I managed to skip all that and added eggs with no folding or seperating. In fact M&M can practically whip pancake batter into stiff peaks if you don't calm her down so there was no folding of anything into the batter this time.
I also added salt this time which is something I usually omit in all pancake recipes. Needless to say they didn't turn out how I remembered but they were still ok.
Lesson learned - seperating egg whites from yolks does have an effect on how the finished product turns out (And I always thought it was something to just kill time in the kitchen).

No need for credit...I'm just always tempted to skip that egg white part also!! That's why I thought it might be my recipe!
