Pumpkin Pancakes with Nutmeg Whipped Cream

We make this every year for Halloween dinner. It would also be good for Thanksgiving morning breakfast and the whipped cream would be great on pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Rating: 4.46 stars
A delicious holiday breakfast. It's a wonderful spin on traditional french toast that measures up for any pumpkin pie lover. Serve warm with warmed maple syrup!

Pumpkin Sufganiot with Cranberry Jelly

Rating: 5 stars
I wanted to combine Thanksgiving flavors for a Hanukkah doughnut. This dough is very forgiving, and will last in the fridge, well-wrapped, for 3 days. That makes it easy to break up the recipe into batches and fry the doughnuts when it's convenient for you. This makes a great holiday breakfast or dessert! Makes about two and a half dozen, depending on your cutters.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Rating: 4.8 stars

This is an all time, excellent, every time recipe. It is very simple, and so well loved by many. I make these for family, friends, school functions, work functions, for gifts etc. It has always been raved about - even by kids! I recommend bringing this to your Thanksgiving function; you will be thanked many times for this delicious taste treat. This is a large quantity, but you will end up making this size batch more than once. You can also make muffins and small loaves using this recipe; bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
