I halved the recipe as my time was limited but I will make these again. Even with whole-grain flour the batter was just the right consistency, and the pancakes cooked up light and fluffy and nicely pumpkin-y, if a bit moist on the inside. I like the idea of adding chocolate chips but this time I left them plain and we ate them with butter and real maple syrup.
Jane Shapton serves these fluffy pancakes with warm cranberry sauce; they're also great with maple syrup.
Yield: Makes about 14 pancakes

Pour batter in 1/2-cup portions onto griddle, spreading slightly with the back of a spoon, and cook until pancakes are browned on the bottom and edges begin to look dry, about 3 minutes; turn with a wide spatula and brown other sides, 2 to 3 minutes longer.
