Reader Ruth Miller, of Eugene, Oregon, sent us this pumpkin pancake recipe. She likes to slice the apples; sauté them in a little butter, sugar, and cinnamon; and spoon them on top. To save time, we skipped the sautéing and put the apples right in the batter.

1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
About 2 tbsp. butter, divided


1. Mix together all ingredients except butter and syrup in a medium bowl.
