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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 2

Melt 2 tsp. butter in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Spoon batter by 1/3-cup portions into pan, making 3 or 4 pancakes at a time. Cook, turning once, until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Continue making pancakes with remaining batter, adding more butter to pan for each batch. Serve with syrup and more butter if you like.

Nice Pancake Twist

We enjoyed these pancakes. My husband who is a sugar freak liked them even without the maple syrup. I didn't have the time or patience to grate apples, so I put in 2 more tablespoons of pumpkin and upped the cinnamon. Also added 1/4 tsp. ground cloves and 1/4 tsp ground ginger. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white. I will make these again.

This recipe needed a little doctoring up. I added a good bit more cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and then when it was still a little bland I added some molasses and vanilla.

This is a great basic recipe. I did not follow exactly. It doesn't state but you should mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, then the wet in another then mix. I doubled the recipe (lots of hungry folks in my house) and added one huge pink lady apple, coarsely shredded, not chopped. Tart, crisp, juicy. I never use plain milk in pancakes, always buttermilk. I used white whole wheat flour instead of white. I used melted butter instead of oil. With all those changes I got light but hearty, fluffy, thick and delicious pancakes, a lot like the picture.

Awesome!!! It was easy to double the recipie. I didn't have pumpkin, I used a banana instead. They seemed to cook fast,you really have to watch them. My kids and husband loved them. I will never make plain pancakes again. Next time I will try whole wheat flour. Yumm,yumm!
