Pumpkin Pancakes shaped with Wilton Cookie Cutter

Proper griddle heat is critical, and you may find it helpful to kill the flame after flipping each batch. Partially fill a Pumpkin shaped, Maple leaf, or other shaped cookie cutter with insulated grip. Shake the cutter sideways to spread the batter fully into the form. Lift cutter to cool slightly and repeat. 


Pumpkin Pancake on Griddle

Cook pumpkin pancakes undisturbed until golden brown, then flip. Flatten Pumpcakes to expel any residual liquid while cooking, if necessary. Keep the griddle on medium and below to best form shape. Flip and flip again, ending with the formed side up. Top each Pumpcake with a small slab of butter for the last minute on the griddle and use a covered warming pan if you're serving a whole gang.  Enjoy with maple syrup, whipped cream, or just as they are!

*Spiced Pumpkin-- Mix equal sized cans of Libby's pumpkin and pumpkin pie filling into a food processor and blend. Spoon into 1 cup containers or weight into storage bags, about 275 grams each. The balance of the Spiced Pumpkin can be frozen for future use in this an other pumpkin recipes. You could spice your own pumpkin, but this is way more convenient and has excellent flavor.

    Thanks for posting delicious dish of Pumpkin Pan Cakes. I tried to cook the same but they are not so tasty. I asked my mother to cook she is an expert and they are very tasty. Particularly Pumkin Pan cakes are good for children, as they are fun and healthy.

    What a fine and simple recipe of pumpkin pancakes. My children love to have pancakes at breakfast. I will try these. You can use melted chocolate on top with fresh cream. My kids loved it. Give me a chance to tell you about this.

Recently had my first taste of pumpkin pancakes at IHOP. My favorite thing from there is lingonberry butter. It is out of this world on pumpkin pancakes. So far as I can tell, the only way to get this is to find a source of lingonberries (whatever those are!) and make your own lingonberry butter. I've never gone to the trouble to do this but, since tasting it on pumpkin pancakes, have decided it might just be worth the effort!

*FYI-IHOP would not sell me just lingonberry butter.
