Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups apple cider or juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • PANCAKES:
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted, divided

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Stir in cider and orange juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in pie filling and butter. Remove from the heat; set aside and keep warm.
  • 2. For pancakes, place oats in a food processor; cover and process until ground. Transfer to a large bowl; add the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pie spice, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg, milk, pumpkin, syrup and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened; fold in 1/2 cup pecans.
  • 3. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle; flatten with the back of a spoon. Turn when the undersides are browned; cook until the second sides are golden brown. Serve with compote and remaining pecans. Store leftover compote in the refrigerator. Yield: 14 pancakes (5 cups compote).
