These crepe-like pancakes have the flavor of a cross between Indian Pudding and Pumpkin Pie. Very popular with my crowd.

Mr Breakfast - I bought a can of pumpkin for pie filling - and didn't use it all. This was the perfect recipe. Note - I experiment because I had the pumpkin pie filling (you recommended the plain pumpkin) and just omitted the ginger and cinnamon so it wouldn't be TOO spicy. It worked great!

These are quite possibly the best pancakes ever (to eat in the fall, at least.) The pecans and pure maple syrup go so well with the slightly spiced pumpkin - and the cornmeal really adds to the texture of the pancakes.

There's no way this makes 4 servings though- they were so delicious that two of us finished them all!! Double this recipe - you'll need them for when everyone asks for seconds.

You made this the best Halloween breakfast ever! Thanks Mr Breakfast!!
