Harvest Pumpkin Pancakes

So a friend of mine recently gave me an idea on a new breakfast idea, just in time for autumn.  If you use pancake mix and canned pumpkin, this is a very simple and easy recipe to make.  You can, of course, always use your favorite from-scratch pancake recipe and/or homemade mashed pumpkin, but this was infinitely easier and faster to make, especially if you're as busy as most people I know with kids. 

Hope you enjoy it! :)

10 oz pancake mix (such as Shake N Pour)
2 C cool water
7 oz mashed pumpkin (about ½ a can)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
butter or cooking spray for the griddle

Combine pancake mix and water; mix well.  Whisk in mashed pumpkin and pie spice. 

The mix should not be the consistency of cake batter, it should be about the same or slightly thinner than regular pancake batter.  So if mix is too thick, thin with water or milk until desired consistency is achieved.  Pour batter onto greased griddle (you can use butter or cooking spray on the griddle) that's been preheated on medium to medium-high; be careful not to pour too much at once so pancakes don't run into one another. 

When the pancakes start to lift on the edges and the batter has large bubbles throughout, flip.  Cook for another 7-10 minutes, or until other side is golden brown.  Serve with butter or margarine and syrup. 

Makes about 15 medium-sized pancakes.
