Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe

I took my favorite pancake recipe and made it ready for fall and pumpkin season this past weekend. It made my house smell divine and my mouth was watering something fierce while I was getting it ready to put on the griddle.

I know I’ll get more requests for my pumpkin pancakes this fall and you better bet they’ll be on the table Halloween morning. What a treat! {without the tricks}
