It is pumpkin time and this week I made three pumpkin items with a large can of pumpkin. Pumpkin pancakes are the kids favorite pancakes especially just cold plain. They almost taste like you are eating a muffin or cookie but less messy because they are in pancakes form.
My sister showed up one day last fall with a plate of pumpkin pancakes. She told me I could find the recipe Pumpkin Pancakes-Allrecipe.com. I have been making them since.
These pancakes are not overwhelming in flavor but have just the perfect amount of spice. They are a denser pancake but I have add a bit extra baking soda to fluff them up a little more. I found the original recipe to not cook all the way through sometimes. I hope your family enjoys this fall treat!
