ALL Pancake Recipes PLEASE!!!

I am IN LOVE with Pumpkin pancakes...BUT I cannot make them to save my life...period. Here is the recipe I used, please criticque if you can, or suggest another recipe, even if it's not pumpkin. I would like something healthier than regular old flour, buttermilk pancakes. Something I can use WW Flour, Oat flour, etc. I have two teen girls and a toddler who loves pancakes but I just don't feel like they are a good bfast idea when just regular pancakes...am I missing something?

2 1/2 c King Arthur Unbleached WW Flour
1/2 c Ground Flax
2 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
3 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
2 tsp. Real Vanilla Extract
4 Eggs
3 1/2 c. Milk (I used a bit more to get the right consistency at the end)
1 can Pureed Pumpkin
1/4 c. + 2 Tbsp. Melted Butter

Sift all dry ingredients, make a hole
Mix all wet ingredients (I mix everything but butter, then slowly whisk it in to the cold milk/egg mixture so it makes little solid butter particles) together
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until smooth.

Cooked on a pancake griddle set to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

They stay gummy in the middle, can this be the flax? I am cooking them long enough. I EVEN tried putting them on a stoneware sheet and in the oven at 325 for 25 mins (checking every 5 minutes or less) and they were STILL gummy, but the outsides were crispy! I am so ready to give up on this....my other idea is to make Pumpkin Bread and do French Toast...PLEASE HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPP PPP!!!


TIA

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal is also yummy. You can easily keep it in the fridge and reheat for several mornings

Re: ALL Pancake Recipes PLEASE!!!

Mine is pretty close to yours- except it recommends separating egg yolks and whites. Add yolks to batter then beat the egg whites until they are fluffy- like you would with waffles. Then fold them in to the batter.

And I cook all my pancakes on 300 to 325. Think you need to lower your temp and cook slower and longer. Pumpkin pancakes are also darker then a regular pancake when finished. Sounds like your just not cooking them low or long enough.

Heres a good non-pumpkin

Cornmeal wheat pancakes- I have used half and half ap flour and wheat but never all whole wheat. Makes 12 small to med (guess that is relative) pancakes. You could eat it on a salad plate. Our family of 4 usually eats 10 of them.

3/4 cup ap flour
1/2 cup WW flour
1/4 corn meal- I usually do more like a 1/3 because we like the flavor
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups buttermilk (or alt- we use soy milk of skim milk with vinegar to make buttermilk)
1/4 cup oil.

You could add flax or other stuff if you like you may just need to add a little more liquid. This batter is a little runnier than a regular pancake batter. It looks like its going to run all over the place, but it starts cooking quickly and holds firm- its weird.

Mix dry ingreds. mix wet ingreds. mix together until just combined. Cook. I like syrup on mine, but the rest of the family eats these with honey.
