Introducing author, DEVORAH FOX, and her favorite recipe for Lazy Girl’s Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe!

A Fantasy/SciFi Mini


With her words, she has the power to change the world.

When bullies torment a fellow student, Mercedes hangs back. Remorse drives her to join Zorro, a campus safety club, where she falls for the leader. She uses her superpowers to win his affection only to discover he has a hidden agenda. Will she yield to desire and keep his secret? Or find a way to thwart his diabolical plan?

A Fantasy/SciFi Mini

Now on Kindle Vella: Stories told one short episode at a time.

Read the first three episodes of LADY BLACKWING EARNS HER MASK on Kindle Vella #FREE.  The story starts with Episode 1 and continues through a total of 15 episodes. Episode 4, titled “Zorro”,  is the first episode that has to be unlocked, i.e. requires tokens and so is not free as are the first 3 episodes. Although, lots of Vella readers get at least 200 free tokens and Kindle is currently doing a promotion giving away 500 free tokens instead of 200. If you haven’t checked out Kindle Vella, now’s your chance!

[Adapted from Betty Crocker]


2 1/3 cup baking mix, like Bisquick
1/3 cup canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
1 1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon each ground nutmeg and ginger (or use a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger)

2 eggs
2 tablespoons sugar
Optional: pancake syrup

Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees F. Grease griddle with vegetable oil if necessary. In a medium bowl, combine all the pancake ingredients until well blended. For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle. Cook until edges are dry. Flip and cook the other side until golden brown. Serve with pancake syrup if desired.

Cook’s Note: I have left out the sugar and they came out fine. I also don’t use pancake syrup because to my taste they’re sweet enough without it.


Thanks, Devorah, for sharing your story and recipe with us!

Don’t miss the chance to read this book!

  1. Hi, thank you for sharing the pumpkin recipe, I have never had them, but they sound delicious, I have had sweet potato pancakes though and they are really good! This book sounds like a great read! Thank you for sharing the blurb. Have a great weekend and stay safe.

  2. A late good morning, Devorah, and welcome back to Karen’s Killer Fixin’s. Like the others, I’m so ready for pumpkin pancakes! I cook down and freeze pumpkin every Halloween so I have it for pumpkin pie and creamer and cookies. Can’t wait to try it in pancakes. Sounds delicious.

    I’m fascinated by your book on Vella. What fun to read it in short bursts. I often don’t start a book because I feel bad when I have to keep putting it down to do something else. These are going to be like mini-chocolate bites! Fun! Love the premise of your story, too. Can’t wait to get started.

    1. Thanks so much. A while back I did a few “minis,” stories that could be read on a lunch break or while waiting for the doctor or the auto repair. A Vella story is even mini-er!
