Now that the blast of summer is over, it’s time to break out the cardigans. No more summer dresses and frozen cocktails under the sun. Like Winnie the Pooh says, Autumn is a time of hot chocolatey mornings, and toasty marshmallow evenings, and, best of all, leaping into leaves! Fall is an exciting time for family, comfort food, and reflection. It’s also a great time to discover and embrace the Norwegian concept of Kos, the feeling of warmth and coziness that we share with friends and family.
Imagine the perfect fall morning: rolling over with a nice, long stretch as autumn leaves drift by your window. And what’s that smell? Fresh, steaming pancakes with a spark of savory cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of ginger. I think we all agree that pumpkin spice is the official scent of fall.
Pumpkin spice pancakes means you’ll readily wave goodbye to summer and give a nice warm embrace to the flavors of autumn. To help you celebrate the season we’ve decided to share our super secret pumpkin pancake recipe with you. And don’t worry: we won’t hold it against you if you can’t keep a secret. Go ahead and share it with your loved ones. It’s kind of what fall, and Kos, is all about.
