It’s another food holiday today…and a good one too, National Pancake Day! What better way to celebrate a food holiday than to actually make the food you are supposed to be honoring right? I don’t think your family will complain if you ditch the menu plan for tonight and make these pumpkin pancakes from PBS’s hit kid’s cooking show, Hey Kids Let’s Cook!, instead for dinner. You’ll most likely have all the ingredients already in your pantry (leftover pumpkin from the holidays perhaps?) and I can bet you’ll be rewarded with lots of smiles for this one. Find the recipe after the jump…
Check out your local PBS schedule to find host Kathy Powers teamed up with her chefs (ages 6-13) to share recipes (like this one!), cooking and nutrition tips with viewers.
