Thanksgiving Breakfast: Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Fall has arrived and pumpkin spice permeates the air. From lattes to cheesecakes, you can’t seem to escape its magical autumn appeal. We’ve surrendered to its charms and incorporated it into a new fall breakfast favorite, pumpkin spice pancakes. 

These pancakes are a bit denser than usual pancakes thanks to the weight of the pumpkin puree(not pumpkin pie filling), but with a slight increase in cooking time you are left with a flavorful start to your day. Serve these up for breakfast this Thanksgiving weekend and well into the holiday season.
