    Pumpkin Pancakes

    If you have some leftover cooked Pumpkin, it would be a good idea to mix it into Pancake batter. Today I had almost 1/2 cupful of Pumpkin, but it doesn’t matter how much to add. You can add more or less, just adjust the thickness of the batter with Milk. This recipe makes very thick …
