Pumpkin Pancakes

September 26 is National Pancake Day.  I’m not in the habit of knowing food holidays, but the date also happens to be my birthday.  Of all the food holidays I could have gotten, this is a pretty awesome one.  It’s cake… in breakfast form!  Here’s one of my all time favorite pancake recipes for you to enjoy.  I found roasted, salted pecan halves at Trader Joe’s.  They are optional, but it’s quite a nice combo with the sweet and salty thing going on.
