This time of year we love everything pumpkin, even at breakfast time! These perfectly spiced pumpkin pancakes are a hit with everyone in the Sunset Test Kitchen this fall. The flavors are just right and the pumpkin puree makes them moist and a beautiful deep gold. We all agree the star of this recipe is the ginger butter. It's the perfect topping for these delicious pancakes (Pumpkin-Ginger Pancakes with Ginger Butter). Make extra and spread it on toast.
The recipe calls for canned pumpkin puree, but if you have fresh pumpkin it’s easy to make your own. Follow our recipe for mashed pumpkin and use a blender, food processor, or electric mixer to turn it into a smooth puree.
