In small bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg & salt.
Mix pumpkin, milk and egg together.
Blend dry ingredients into pumpkin mixture. Add pecans, reserving a few for topping.
Heat griddle to medium low and add canola oil. When hot, pour 1/4 cup of mixture on the griddle. Cook until bubbles appear on top and then turn over. Adjust heat if bubbles do not appear before burning or add a little water to the mixture to thin. Serve immediately with butter, syrup and whipped cream to taste with a sprinkle of pecans on top.
