Ingredients Add to grocery list

5 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup pecan halves
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4   eggs, separated
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree
confectioner’s sugar, for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Add the brown sugar and stir until the sugar begins to melt. Add the pecans and cook for 2 more minutes. Transfer the pecan mixture to a small dish and set aside. Reserve the skillet for the pancake. 

In a small bowl mix together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, sugar and salt. Set aside. 

Melt the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter. In a large bowl, add egg yolks, buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter and whisk until blended. Gradually whisk in flour mixture. Stir in the pumpkin puree. 

Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form and gently fold into the pumpkin mixture. Gently spoon the batter into the reserved skillet. Sprinkle the top of the pancake mixture with the reserved pecan mixture. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. 

Dust the pancake with confectioners’ sugar. Cut into wedges and serve with maple syrup.

When you announced to the public,that you began to lose weight & cut down on all your sweets & eat more healthier foods;I also made changes in my eating habits. I lost 50 pounds,within between 6 & 7 months. I cut down on my coffee,sweets,meats,starches,such as potatoes & soda pop! I am eating 1 meal a day,plus soups & salads during the day,only when I feel hungry. I drink lots of water & juices. I look & feel fantastic !

To Joyce, you have to click "print preview" first then the print button and you don't get the box.

when I go to print the recipe, there is a box that is over the right lower part of the recipe . It says "Short Cuts". I want to see the recipe not this box over the recipe. How do I get rid of it. I tried print recipe only and its still there.

Hi Paula! Paula, I noticed awhile back that when you're introducing us to recipes for things that start in a pan and then finish in the OVEN, you fail to tell us to start the recipe in an oven-proof skillet. We Yankees from up north don't have alot of cast iron, it would be big help to us if you would always try to remember to tell us to start out the recipe in an oven-proof skillet, OK? Thanks so much Paula! My husband and I are huge fans of yours and we love you very much!

OMG!!! I made this for brunch with girlfriends and all of us thought we'd died and gone to pancake heaven! Don't forget the dijon-brown sugar glazed bacon. It completes the dish. Paula, if you read this, THANK YOU! You've outdone yourself.
