I know it’s the day after Halloween. The last thing on your mind is anything sweet. You probably have a candy hangover and your house looks like a bomb.
Or is that just me? Why does Halloween always make me crave Mexican food? All the questions today.
Buuutttt, I wanted to share these Pumpkin Pancakes with you. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen me make 23820349 versions of these pumpkin pancakes in order to get them just right.
Some are made with butter, some with oil, some with a little pumpkin, and some with a lot of pumpkin. After playing around with a million recipes, spices, and going through oodles of pumpkin, this is the pumpkin pancake recipe you want.
The key to these pancakes is the regulating the temperature of the pan. If your pan is too hot, you’ll end up with raw pancakes on the inside with a burnt outside.
You want a nice medium-low temperature so that you can control that but still get a pretty color on the outside.
These have the perfect amount of spice that give it that I just ate pumpkin pie but way better taste.
CAN I MAKE THESE AHEAD OF TIME?
Yes! These Pumpkin Pancakes can be kept in the fridge for about a week and heated as needed or frozen for longer.
