Everyone here in New England makes pumpkin pancakes, it's a rite of passage, haha and mine are considered some of the best say family and friends:-) I always serve these w/ maple flavored bacon, real maple syrup and a shaker of powdered sugar for those who don't use syrup. Very simple but incredibly yummy!
