Pumpkin pancakes

I wanted to share my new favorite recipe - a great way to get some pumpkin into little kids!

Pumpkin pancakes

1/2 can of pumpkin [I've even used the whole can before, it makes them very dense - I still liked them though]
2 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 & 1/2 cups of milk
3 cups of self rising flour [or, for healthier pancakes use 2 cups whole wheat flour + 1 cup all purpose four + 2tsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp salt instead]
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger

Thoroughly mix the first 5 ingredients. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Cook on griddle and serve.

This makes enough to feed our whole family of 8, but if your family is smaller they keep well in a zip lock bag in the fridge or freezer.
