Pumpkin Puff Pancakes, an Autumn Treat…

October 21st, 2014 by Antonio

pumpkin puff pancakesThe Empress of Little Rock has long been known for the amazing breakfasts that are served daily in the grand formal dining room.  Bob Blair and Sharon Welch-Blair have created a menu influenced by both their travels and their many years as owners of The Empress.  Each day at The Empress promises a new and even more delicious entree for you to eat by candlelight.  Some of our favorites include Ham and Asparagus Bundles, Grand Marnier French Toast and warm Toasted Cheese Strata.  But one of our most popular dishes is only served in the fall and winter, and guests await impatiently for Pumpkin Puff Pancake season to roll back around.  The Empress is now serving this delectable dish, but we are including the recipe here, so that all of our friends can enjoy them at home as well.

Good luck on your version of our well-known autumn favorite, but if you want to get them directly from the source, book a night at The Empress now!
