You can easily add leftover pumpkin puree to pancake mix to create a seasonal breakfast treat. Just add a quarter cup of puree for every cup of pancake mix. You may need to add a little extra milk to the batter to adjust for the extra moisture from the puree.

If you have leftover canned pumpkin puree, there are a few different ways you can store it. One option is to pour the puree into an ice cube tray and freeze it. Once the pumpkin cubes are frozen, you can transfer them to a freezer bag. This way, you can thaw out only as much as you need for your next baking project.
Another option is to portion out the puree into a freezer-safe container and freeze it for up to three months. When you're ready to use it, thaw the puree in the refrigerator overnight.
Finally, you can also keep leftover pumpkin puree in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to five days. Whichever storage method you choose, be sure to label the container with the date so you know when it needs to be used up.
