We are in full pumpkin season here in southern USA and I love to use pumpkin puree in soups, risottos and of course on sweet things like pies, pumpkin butter or Cheesecake. Here, they are a breakfast meal, but for me they are more like a quick bread to eat with a cup of tea.
I love them with maple syrup, a little whipped cream and chopped nuts as pictured. If you have never made pancakes I recommend you do, is fast and they always work.

- Pour the dry ingredients over the wet and stir just enough to mix the two and get a heavy batter.
- Heat a griddle. Little oiled.
- Place 1/2 cup batter and let cook a couple of minutes, they are ready to flip when you start seeing bubbles burst on the surface. Flip and finish cooking. They should be golden.
