Be jealous, one and all

This is my brother. He makes pancakes. He makes gooooood pancakes.

He is 17. He rocks. 

If your brother wants to make you pancakes, or if you want to make your brother pancakes, or if YOU just want pancakes, make PUMPKIN pancakes.

Mix the dry:
2 cups flour
2 T brown sugar
1 T baking powder
1 tsp. each of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
1 tsp. salt

Mix in the wet:
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup pumpkin
1 egg
2 T oil, melted butter, or applesauce

If you're super awesome, like he is, make APPLE SYRUP.

1 3/4 cup apple cider
1/4 cup brown sugar

Stir in and simmer for five minutes:
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmet

Then cook 'em up, serve 'em, and raise your eyes to the heavens, praising the good Lord for little brothers.

I've never tried pumpkin pancakes. I'm going to have to print this off.

Sounds Yummy!
My little brother once made supper for us (he was I think thirteen, if I remember right.) He made spaghetti and spiced the sauce up with a little nutmeg...
it was a little weird.
But these.
They sound delicious!

Is it weird that your verifier says beapig?

Can I just say that your brother is extremely ambitious? Pumpkin pancakes AND apple syrup? Amazing. I have a brother who loves to cook, but he's off with his own family, so I don't get to reap the benefits much anymore. So sad.

Can I borrow your brother?
