Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Adapted from Annie's Eats.

Another fall recipe!! Are you sick of them yet? I sure hope not because I have several more up my sleeves this year. ;-) These were seriously the best, fluffiest and easiest pancake I think I've ever made. And they are kid approved, which you know makes them a keeper in my house! I have yet to be disappointed with a recipe from Annie, and these were no different! I did increase the pumpkin just a bit, and added a little extra spice (can't get enough spice in this house), and have reflected those changes here. Enjoy!

1¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash of ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup milk
1/2 cup & 1 Tablespoon pumpkin puree
1 large egg
2 tbsp. vegetable oil or melted butter
Dash of Pumpkin Pie Spice
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and spices and stir with a fork to combine.  Mix together the milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, egg and oil or butter in a liquid measuring cup.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together just until combine.  (The batter may still have a few lumps – that is okay.)
Preheat the oven to 200° F.  Have an oven safe plate or serving dish ready.  Heat a greased skillet or griddle over medium heat.  Once the skillet is hot, add a 1/3 cup scoop of batter to the pan.  Let cool until bubbles begin to form on the top surface.  Carefully flip with a spatula and cook the second side until golden brown, a couple minutes more.  Transfer the cooked pancake to the oven safe dish, and place in the oven to keep warm.  Repeat with the rest of the batter until it has all been cooked, regreasing the pan as needed.  Serve with cinnamon sugar, maple syrup, and/or whipped cream.

Seriously... You're still reading this?!?! GO MAKE THESE NOW!!! lol! Seriously, amazing pancakes. Love them, can't say that enough. Sprinkled with a little cinnamon sugar and some maple syrup, YUMM!!! My 2 year old devoured these, and he doesn't devour much of anything! 5 Stars.
