  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

For the sweet Curacao cream

  • 150 ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar

1. For the pancakes: mix together the mashed pumpkin, flour, sugar, baking powder and spices. Stir in the egg and slowly whisk in the milk to make a thick and smooth batter.

2. In a bowl you have already your mashed pumpkin. Add your flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, all spice and ginger. Now add the egg and whisk to a smooth consistency with the milk enough to make a thick batter.

3. Heat a little oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and drop in 3 or 4 spoonfuls of the pancake batter. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Keep a stack of the pancakes warm while you cook the remaining mix.

4. For the sweet Curacao cream: whip the cream with the sugar and Curacao until thickened to soft peaks. Serve a dollop with each pancake.
