Pumpkin Pancake from Scratch

More than a year ago, I posted a pumpkin mixture that could be added to your good ol'pancake mix from the box. My husband (then boyfriend) had a box of the dry mix at the time and I wanted to do something "out of the box." This time around, I used a pumpkin pancake recipe from scratch, which is how I like to make all my pancakes.

The pancakes were light and airy, thanks to the whipped egg whites. I jazzed it up by adding cranberries, but felt something was missing. After the meal, I thought about adding zest in the pancakes next time. Little did I know that I had forgotten that I added zest last time in my pumpkin mixture! The zest adds a freshness and enhances the pumpkin flavor. I will definitely add it next time.
