Butternut Squash Pancakes

1 15-oz can Butternut Squash
1 egg
1 egg white
1 C skim milk
2 C whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves

In a bowl, combine squash, egg, egg white, and milk. In a separate bowl stir together remaining ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the squash mixture, mixing well.

Place a skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup batter per pancake and cook about 3 minutes. Flip the pancakes and press firmly to flatten. Cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.

Notes: The batter is thicker than most pancake batters, so I place a round egg ring on the skillet, fill with 1/4 cup batter, spreading evenly, and then remove the egg ring when it's time to flip the pancake and flatten the pancake with a large spatula.
