For Pancakes: Combine flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
Combine milk, egg, pumpkin, oil, lemon juice and vanilla in a separate bowl. Beat with a whisk until smooth. Add to dry ingredients, stirring just until blended. Do not over beat.
Heat a large skillet or griddle on medium high heat, adding a small amount of oil. Portion approximately 1/4 cup of batter on griddle, repeating to fill griddle. Cook pancake until bottom is brown and top has bubbles, about 2 minutes. Flip pancakes and continue cooking until bottom is browned. Serve immediately with Hot Apple Cider Syrup.
