    These pumpkin pancakes are not sweet. That means they’ll get buttery and crisp in the pan and still have amazing pumpkin flavor.

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      These pancakes are thick, so make sure you let it cook through before flipping. The pancake should look puffy and small bubbles will form in the batter when it is time to flip. Gently flip pancake and cook until center is domed.
