Pumpkin-Flavored Pancakes Recipe

"Great recipe. Only a few things I would change. Maybe add a bit of clove and pumpkin pie spice for more flavor. We also added a bit more pumpkin cuz we love it!! We used whip cream to top them instead of syrup, amazing! We added a few chocolate chips to a few of them just to see what they would taste like. They were the best of the batch! Definitely would recommend this recipe to others!!"

"As many other reviewers commented, these turned out gummy, almost pasty tasting. In addition to the texture, the flavor was lacking something, perhaps more sweetness or spice. I added toasted walnuts to our batch but will not make these again. My pancake loving kids didn't even care for them."

"Making them the way it was directed they failed. Burned because they wouldn't cook through. I then lowered my heat to med-low and then put a lid on my skillet. This made them "steam cook" in a way. Turned out fluffy and light. Also I omitted the oil. You don't really need it in this recipe. I used a pumpkin spread instead of syrup. This was almost like a desert. Delicious."

"I have made this twice now, hoping for better results the second time. Nope! Sorry, but this recipe makes the pancakes turn out very flat and gummy. My son wouldn't even finish his breakfast. :("

"Followed the recipe exactly; turned out horrible. Thick as molasses and looked NOTHING like batter. Cooked it anyway and turned out gummy and bitter. So aggravated that I used up the last of my milk on this awful recipe!"

"These were yummy with syrup on top! I did alter the recipe though- 3/4 cup white flour and 1 1/4 cups ww flour; less ginger and nutmeg; 1 1/4 cups whole milk; and close to 1 cup of pumpkin puree I made; 1 whole egg; and no oil since I added extra pumpkin. Yum!!!"

I will not be making these again. My dog wouldn't even eat one and played frisbee with it! LOL Definitely not my favorite...."
