During the fall I love to use pumpkin as much as possible. When I stumbled across this recipe for pumpkin pancakes on I just knew I needed to make them!
These are probably the best pumpkin pancakes we have ever had! They were so good that the kids asked not only for seconds, but thirds! To make them a little more “halloween-ish”, you can use metal cookie cutters on the griddle and pour your batter right into it to form the shape of your pancake. Easy, and the kids will love it too!
