Butternut Squash Pancakes

You, too, can make pancakes from scratch! These butternut squash pancakes are memorable and come together quickly. The 2:1 ratio of flour to squash can easily be doubled or tripled for a large Sunday brunch gathering. It's also a great way to use up extra squash, sourced from local Minnesota farms and in season. This calls for butternut, but any mashed squash works (leftover roasted or steamed). This recipe was shared with Meet the Minnesota Makers by Kris Jennings, the author of The Hungry Boys Food Blog.
