Extra Fluffy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

AuthorKathleen GloverCategoryDifficultyBeginner

It's finally Pumpkin Spice season! If you're anything like me, that means you have already stocked up on cans upon cans of pumpkin puree and are saving any and all pumpkin recipes you come across. Pumpkin Spice Pancakes are a staple Autumn comfort food in my house, and its such a great recipe for using up the remnants of a big pumpkin puree can! The key to what makes these extra fluffy is whipped egg whites that are carefully folded in right before the batter is fried up.

Serve with Pumpkin Whipped Cream or maple butter for an over-the-top treat!
