Pumpkin Pancakes

Recipe slightly adapted from Parents Magazine
My name is Misti and I'm a pancake-aholic.  I love warm, fluffy pancakes for breakfast and these pancakes definitely did not disappoint.  They were so light and fluffy, and course, I love them because they have pumpkin in them. I love pancakes!  I love pumpkin!  I love Fall!  That's a lot of love. I hope you love them too.

1 cup flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp butter, divided
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk (or mix 1 Tbsp lemon juice with enough milk to make a cup; let stand 5 minutes)
1/3 cup canned pumpkin

In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.  Melt 1 Tbsp butter. Whisk in egg, buttermilk, pumpkin and melted butter.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add 1 tsp butter and swirl to coat pan.  Spoon batter onto skillet and cook until pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, turn and cook until golden on bottom.  If pancakes brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium.  Serve with berries, syrup or other toppings of your choice.
