2 cups all purpose flour
3 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cup milk
1 jar (9) Dickinson’s Country Pumpkin Butter

In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, pumpkin butter, egg, oil and vinegar until well blended.

Meanwhile, to make sauce, melt butter in a large skillet. Add bananas and pecans and sauté 2 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together lemon curd and water. Add to skillet and cook 2 minutes or until sauce is bubbly. Serve sauce over pancakes. Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
