Homemade Amish Pumpkin Pancakes

Tis the season for pumpkin still and one of the mainstays in Amish kitchens this time of year: homemade pumpkin pancakes.  Can anyone say “yum?” One of my favorite restaurant version of this speciality is served up at Yoder’s Restaurant in Sarasota, Florida.  But you can make your own homemade ones with this easy recipe that comes to me from an Amish woman in Michigan.Drizzle these babies with some warm maple syrup and you’ll have yourself an amazing autumn breakfast! (well, really, who says you can’t have pancakes for supper also?)

    Hi Kevin, these pancakes sound so nice. Here in Australia we eat a lot of pumpkin, mainly as a vegetable, mashed, baked, roasted, in breads, although we do use it in a couple of “sweet recipes such as fruit cake!!
