Chef John's Pumpkin Pancakes

This is a wonderful fall breakfast treat! If you like pancakes and pumpkin, you can't go wrong with this one. I LOVED the flavor of these - the spices are just right and they go perfectly with some yummy maple syrup. These are very hearty; I made 6 large pancakes out of the recipe and my husband and I could barely finish a whole one each! The batter was very thick, so make sure you spread it out a little on the griddle or thin with a little more milk to get to your preferred thickness. I did skip the lemon zest, but otherwise followed the ingredients and instructions.
