    How to make the best pumpkin pancakes.
  • Set the batter aside for at least 10 minutes to let the leaveners activate.
  • Lightly grease a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Use a 1/4 cup scoop to scoop the batter onto the griddle or into the pan, leaving lots of room for the pancakes to spread. Cook for 4-5 minutes on the first side. Once the edges are set and starting to turn golden, then you know it’s time to flip the pancake. Flip and then cook another 3-4 minutes, or until the pancakes are deep golden brown and puffy. Repeat with the remaining pancake batter. Serve.
