Your pancake recipe is very tasty. The pancakes were moderately light in texture and had a delicious spiced flavor. The syrup really makes this a heavenly tasting dish. I am going to make these again for our Thanksgiving breakfast. Very greatful you posted this. Thank-you.
Ooooooooooooo, I have been waiting for a perfect cold Fall morning to make these, and today was the day! They are so delicious! My family went nuts and said this is one of their favorite breakfasts now!! I thank you so much for posting this! Only thing I did different was to double the recipe for both pancakes and cider syrup and it's a good thing I did! (I know my family well! lol) Thanks, Nurse Di!! May use a dollop of whip cream on top next time, but awesome without as well!! You have to try this recipe people!! :-)
DS and I loved these. I made lots of extras to put in freezer for his breakfast on school days. He even likes them w/o butter and syrup. DH doesn't like pumpkin in anything except pie so it was more for DS and me!!! Didn't change a thing in the pancakes, but we used maple syrup.
