Pumpkin pancakes just sound yummy. Am I right? My youngest son would have pancakes everyday if I had the energy to make them daily. When I saw canned pumpkin on the shelf at the store and remembered it being bare last year, I grabbed a large can and two small ones. I opened one with a smile and tried a pumpkin latte recipe that was not a winner. Then I turned to the pumpkin pancakes and WINNER! These are great.
You will also be surprised to know that even I have a box of bisquick on the back shelf for days like this. It is a very easy recipe and I found it on the Betty Crocker website as Spicy Pumpkin Pancakes. But if I call it that, the boys think it is "hot" spicy instead of cinnamon "spicy." So to us there are plain pumpkin pancakes.
Here is the recipe: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/spicy-pumpkin-pancakes/f93e66ed-68c6-4f1d-8f98-5dcbd90ed36e.
It's that time of year! So just give it a try. The boys said it tasted like pumpkin pie! The recipe also says you can make a maple-pecan syrup. My boys are not fans of nuts, so we just slathered it in real maple syrup!
