OK so I found this really great recipe and I was about to make it when I realized the canned milk I'd bought at the store didn't make it home with me! I had the pumpkin in the bowl, with the eggs etc mixed in and I couldn't just leave it to waste. So I improvised and what I ended up with was fantastic, here is a side note.... I used fresh pumpkin which is much more wet/moist than canned pumpkin, if you use canned pumpkin use a cup and a half of pumpkin and an addt'l 1/4 of milk. The batter consistency should be batter like thick batter for pancakes... not almost a dough. It will be too dry if you don't use enough pumpkin/milk. lol So if at all possible use fresh pumpkin, happy cooking from Aadria in the Colorado Rockies.
