I love homemade pancakes, the kind where you start with flour and go from there...they always taste wonderful! But to be honest, I don't always have the time to measure out a bunch of ingredients - I want to toss something together and feed my hungry boils and ghouls (er, boys and girls). So I came up with the lazy way!


1 1/2 cups pancake mix
1 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
1 large egg
1 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 cup canned or pureed pumpkin (or fresh cooked)
1/2 cup water

If you need to use up the rest of your pumpkin, make a batch of Spiced Pumpkin Pillow Cookies with Ginger Cream Cheese Frosting! Or, make a double batch! Pancakes keep in the freezer for up to 3 months, and reheat very well!

Step 1: Prep Your Griddle

Step 1 - Prep your Griddle
If using an electric griddle, heat to 375 Degrees F. If using a pan, heat until drops of water dance and evaporate immediately (med. heat). When the griddle/pan is ready, lightly grease the griddle with butter. You don't need a lot!
