Pumpkin Pancakes

Posted by on 22 October 2008

I love this time of the year for many reasons.  The colors, the smells, the fun and more!!  Another reason I love this time of the year is pumpkin pancakes at IHOP!!  I’m not much of a pancake fan at all.  Oh yes, I eat them, but they’re not my favorite.  I love being out in the kitchen making them with Miss K.  But, this is the time of year that IHOP brings back their delicious pumpkin pancakes.  I so look forward to it and we don’t go often, but when we do, I order them no matter what.  If you haven’t tried them, I highly recommend that you do!!

In my love for their pumpkin pancakes, I went on a hunt for recipes for them so I might be able to make them at home for myself.  If I find a good recipe, I can even make them year round!!  Who wouldn’t want the smell of pumpkin and spices in their house all year!?!?  Below, you’ll see the recipe that I’m going to try this weekend, IF I ever get to the store to buy my pumpkin.  This particular recipe was sent through one of the Y!Groups that I’m in.  I’ve also included links to other pumpkin pancake recipes in hopes that we can all enjoy our favorite smells and favors of the season!!

    Have your mom take you to IHOP. However, I know what a picky eater you are, so I doubt that you’d really like them. You might. I think we’re making homemade ones this weekend!!
