Thermomix Pumpkin Pancakes

Thermomix Pumpkin Pancakes
What a good breakfast when there are Thermomix pumpkin pancakes! A classic of overseas breakfast enriched with the pulp of the pumpkin, delicate and sweet, which makes these pancakes delicious.

Vegetables and co are very important in the diet of children and the whole family. Since they are not always very successful, the best thing is to include them as an ingredient in the preparations they love most.

It is a "trick" that I have always followed and that has allowed me to gradually get used to even the most reluctant to all flavors.

Pumpkin pancakes with Thermomix are perfect, also because steaming maintains flavor and guarantees a good consistency of the pulp.

In the recipe I dosed the spices as we like it (yes, even the children!), But you can vary the quantity and type of spices as you like. Personally, I never give up ginger, which goes very well with pumpkin! But cinnamon and cloves are also not bad, because they light up the dough with flavor !!

On the quality of the pumpkin, you do. Surely a pumpkin muscat from Provence or a Neapolitan pumpkin are ideal, but a butternut or the less sweet pumpkin of Hokkaido is also fine, which however has a nice firm pulp and a very thin skin that does not give problems even for these preparations (but are tastes).
