  1. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, spices, and salt until thoroughly combined.

  2. In a separate bowl or measuring cup whisk together the milk, pumpkin, melted butter or oil, and egg.

  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring just until evenly moistened. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons additional milk to thin the batter to pourable consistency, if necessary.

  4. Heat a large pan over medium heat or preheat a griddle to 350°F; the surface is hot enough when a droplet of water skitters across it. Lightly grease the pan with butter or vegetable oil.

  5. Spoon the batter, 1/4 cup at a time, onto the pan; a muffin scoop works well here.

  6. Cook on the first side until the edges of the pancakes start to look dry, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the pancakes over and continue to cook until the bottoms are brown, an additional 2 minutes.

  7. Serve immediately, or transfer cooked pancakes to the oven to stay warm.

  8. Store leftover pancakes, well wrapped, in the refrigerator for several days; freeze for longer storage.
