CLEVELAND, Oh -- Pumpkin pancakes are perfect any time of the year, but especially in the Fall season. Lauren Fohlen from First Watch Restaurants showed Fox 8's Kristi Capel how the addition of oats, cornmeal and different seeds can elevate the flavor in an already delicious recipe.

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 1/2 tsp cornmeal

- In a separate, large mixing bowl; whisk together eggs, half & half, evaporated milk and water until blended.
- Slowly pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients while whisking constantly. Batter will be thick.
