Pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup and pecan nuts

Pancakes (or hot cakes), to me, are a fun breakfast. In fact, they are the typical sunday morning breakfast. When making a good breakfast or brunch, pancakes are a complete must. Now, for a fall brunch I picture these pancakes along with some eggs, bacon and a hot pumpkin spice latte.

We love to eat this pancakes with some nuts on top and some honey or maple syrup. Using some maple syrup on these is just amazing, because it goes so well with the pumpkin flavor and all the spices we use in this recipe. Another great way to eat them is using some whipped cream on top and some ground cinnamon, YUM!

This recipe calls for pumpkin puree. Now, we usually make it ourselves. We but a pumpkin, cook it in boiling water until soft and then mash it. But you could always but the canned pumpkin puree to save time. It should be easy to find as they sell it in lots of places.
