Brown Butter Pumpkin Pancakes

I am finally on the brown butter train.  It has been a long time, and I am starting slow, but I get it.  I finally get it.  So next up I will be trying about 10 different cookies recipes, sauces, blondies, and anything else I can think of.

Pumpkin Pancakes were on my must make list this fall.  Last year I tried them when we were out for breakfast somewhere.  I remember they had a candied, caramel walnut mixture on top.  They were amazing.  But I couldn’t remember them enough to try to replicate them.  So I decided to go a different route, and finally experiment with brown butter.

These pancakes were amazing.  Just check out how fluffy they are, super light too.  My 7 year old ate the leftovers for days, and kept requesting them.  The brown butter with the pumpkin is just magical, and perfect for a fall breakfast.  Top with maple syrup, or even cinnamon maple syrup (steep a cinnamon stick in maple syrup while you mix up the pancakes).  Now if I could just replicate that walnut mixture these might be the best pancakes ever!

Pancakes are one of my favorite foods, and I do like so pumpkin pancakes. The walnut topping you had at a restaurant sounds really good so you need to replicate that soon. Have a good weekend ;)
