I am in love with these pancakes. Made them for dinner and everyone in my family loved them. The pumpkin spice was a nice touch. Very filling, too. I had mine with just a little melted butter. My husband and kids ate theirs with warm maple syrup. Thanks Geema. This is a good one for fall.
Very tasty, next time I will try reducing the sugar to 1/8 cup, and maybe adding some whole wheat to make it more healthy.... But I love it!
Wowzas! These were delicious Geema! I had a little problem..but it was on my part, not anything you did. I couldnt find my pumpkin spice anywhere :-( But! I was creative and think I got something really close to pumpkin spice lol. I used 1/2tsp garam masala, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1/3tsp cinnamon. These were spectacular pancakes. I have tons of leftover batter! These will be nice for the next couple of days hehehehe. Thank you so much Geema! Looking forward to trying more of your recipes!!!!
