Blue Ballet Squash Pancakes


1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground allspice
1 egg
2 cups Blue Ballet winter squash, cooked and pureed
3 tablespoons Maple Syrup or Molasses
3 tablespoons milk or buttermilk
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted


  1. Sift flour, baking powder, salt, allspice, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Beat the egg in a separate bowl, add the squash puree, maple syrup or molasses, milk, and butter.
  3. Blend in the dry ingredients to form a smooth batter.
  4. To make each pancake, spoon a heaping tablespoon of batter onto a lightly greased preheated griddle, flatten with a spoon to about ½ inch thickness, and cook until the bottom side is golden brown (3-4 minutes).
  5. Turn and cook on the other side until golden brown (approx. 5 minutes longer).
  6. Grease griddle as needed to prevent burning. Serve immediately.
