These were very good! We have to substitute rice milk for regular milk which in turn we had to add more flour (not poster's fault at all). I do wish they were a little sweeter on their own (since I don't like syrup) but the kids gobbled them up regardless! Next time I'll just pump up the sweetness slightly and we'll have it down perfect. Thank you for the recipe!

Wonderful! I had pumpkin pancakes last week on vacation and declared I would figure out the recipe--I am a pumpkin lover. Of course I looked on Zaar before attempting it myself and I'm so glad I did! This recipe tasted and looked exactly like what I had in the restaurant. My only addition was flax seed meal, which I add to almost everything with flour in it, for the fiber and omega-3's. Served with whipped cream and a little cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top these are fantastic!! The recipe makes a BIG batch--in my house it would serve 6 at least. Thanks for the recipe!!
