Pumpkin Pancakes

The fall of the year is always a good time to dig out all the pumpkin recipes. This year we are still enjoying beautiful color on the trees and it is November! Bonus time for sure.
These pumpkin cream pancakes are a favorite of our returning guests. As I was reading the sheet for our arriving guests today one of them had a note with it requesting the pumpkin pancakes. It reminded me that others of you may enjoy this as well.

Pumpkin Pancakes

2 cups of flour
4 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon (use a good one- I prefer Saigon)
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup canned or frozen pumpkin puree
1 cup sour cream (or yogurt)
pinch of salt

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl
In a separate bowl whisk butter, milk, eggs, pumpkin, and sour cream
Stir in dry ingredients
Pour by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle
Flip when bubbles start to form on the top
Serve with honey steamed apples and enjoy!
