Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/4 cups flour
2 T. finely chopped pecans
2 t. baking powder
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. ginger
1 egg -- lightly beaten
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup grated carrots
1 t. vanilla extract

Cream Cheese Spread: (optional)
4 oz. cream cheese -- softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 T. milk
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1 dash ground cinnamon

In a bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients.

Combine egg, brown sugar, milk, carrots and vanilla in another bowl; mix well. Stir the carrot mixture into the dry ingredients just until moistened.

Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle (I used Pam). Turn when bubbles form on top of pancake and the edges are dry; cook until second side is golden brown.

Meanwhile for topping, place the cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a blender or food processor; cover and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl; sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve with pancakes.

Serves: 4
