Reviews for Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Brown Butter
Sort By :
"Didn't care for these.....bland, even though I added pumpkin pie spice as suggested. We too prefer the fluffy pancake to this dense pancake. Brown butter okay, nothing to say wow about. Maybe I did something wrong. We will not make these again."
"I should've learned by now that you shouldn't mess with a good thing. As much as I love pumpkin, the plain old pancake sure beat this recipe. The pancake was bland and not worth the extra efforts."
"Very moist and delicious. I fried up some good sausage for the side and my hubby is ecstatic. Even when he loves something he usually doesn't say anything unless I ask, but these got an unsolicited "This is good!"."
"Yum...this is a keeper. Family loved these scrumptious pancakes."
