Pumpkin Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup

Pumpkin Pancakes
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 T. sugar
4 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 t. ground cinnamon
4 eggs, separated
2 c. milk
1 c. canned pumpkin
4 T. canola oil

For pancakes, combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks, milk, pumpkin and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form; fold into batter.

Pour batter by ¼ cupfuls onto a hot greased griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top of pancakes. Cook until second side is golden brown. Serve with apple cider syrup. Garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired.

Apple Cider Syrup

1 c. corn syrup

1 t. lemon juice
¼ t. ground cinnamon
¼ t. ground nutmeg

In a saucepan, combine the syrup ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until slightly thickened. Let stand for a few minutes before serving.
