pumpkin pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes

I love easy breakfast food. Instant pancakes are the best in my eyes. I do get tired of the same ol pancakes all the time though. At times I add in fruit, chocolate, whatever my heard desires. Recently with the change the seasons and my love of pumpkin I wanted pumpkin pancakes.

2 cups pancake mix
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 egg
1 cup water
1/2 c pumpkin

- Mix all ingredients together
- Cook on griddle or in a pan like you would any other pancake.

As a side note if u add to much pumpkin it will not cook like a pancake
