Pumpkin pancakes store easily in your refrigerator for a few days. Or, add a square of waxed paper between each pancake, place in a resealable bag or container, and freeze for up to 1 month. Pop a pancake out of your freezer and into your microwave for a quick morning breakfast.

We just love these on a brisk, cozy Sunday morning! Nothing eases us into the beautiful autumn season like a stack of scrumptious pumpkin pancakes, hot coffee and good company to share them with.
