The flavors of autumn star in these delightful pumpkin pancakes that are topped with a sweet apple cider syrup. Light and fluffy, the pancakes are perfect for breakfast or brunch or as a snack anytime! —Brenda Parker, Portage, Michigan
Piping hot and puffy from the oven, this golden pancake made a pretty presentation for a skier's theme breakfast I hosted. Served with my homemade buttermilk syrup, it's an eye-opening treat. That easy syrup tastes great on waffles and French toast, too.

Who has time to make from-scratch pancakes and homemade syrup? You do, thanks to this easy recipe from Joan Baskin. "My husband and I enjoy these pancakes with crisp bacon or sausages on the side," she notes from Black Creek, British Columbia. "Sometimes we even have them for supper."
I discovered this dish last year while hosting a family reunion here in the Pocono Mountains. My niece brought it and shared the recipe. It's a great dish to make ahead of time and freeze; then you'll have a fancy but easy-to-prepare breakfast whenever you host overnight guests.
In our family, this special recipe is often served for our Christmas Day brunch. I was always looking for something unique to serve, and this rich, colorful dish certainly fills the bill. It tastes so good!
Around our house, Saturday breakfasts are a time to relax. So I like to serve my family's favorite French toast topped with this homemade syrup. After such a satisfying meal, everyone slowly eases into their hectic day ahead.
