About this recipe: These pancakes are moist, delicious, fluffy and packed full of warm spices. They are perfect for the cold winter mornings, but can be enjoyed any time of the year. Serve for breakfast, brunch or dessert with maple syrup and chopped walnuts.
These were SO delicious. I was afraid they might be heavy due to the pumpkin, but they were instead light and fluffy. I followed the recipe to the letter, so I really recommend not changing a thing! Lovely recipe - 30 Sep 2011
Changed recipe for simplicity: 2 1/2 Cup Aunt Jemima Original Pancake Mix, 3 TBS brown sugar, 2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1 egg, 1 3/4 cup milk, 2 TBS vegetable oil, 2 TBS vinegar, 1 cup pumpkin puree. These were fantastic! - 17 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love this recipe; it's a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs breakfast. The following are a couple tips for the best pancakes. Don't thin the batter with more milk. This washes out the pumpkin flavor. Instead, the batter should be portioned out with a 1/4 c. measure onto a moderately hot griddle; then the batter should be spread out slightly using a spoon or a small spatula. This creates the fluffy texture while keeping them hearty. Second, I used a food processor to mix up the wet ingredients. This makes a smoother batter as it breaks down the fiberous pumpkin. The result is a lighter pancake with a more pronounced pumpkin flavor. Third, I used a fresh, good quality pumpkin pie spice rather than measuring out the individual spices; this is an easier preparation, and the flavors were fresher (I get my pumpkin pie spice from a local spice shop that grinds and mixes it weekly for the best quality). Fourth, I got the best results either using whole milk or evaporated milk. Low-fat and fat free milk products just left the flavor dull. - 05 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
