Pumpkin Pancakes

Every year I make little pumpkin pancakes for my family at Halloween time.


It only takes about an extra minute beyond making normal pancakes, and they’re so darn cute!

Just take whatever normal pancake batter recipe you use and add a little bit of pumpkin spice pudding mix into it along with a few drops of orange food coloring.  I just pour a little bit of the mix in to taste, don’t make it into pudding first.  I never measure anything when I’m making pancakes so I’ll leave it to you to decide how much pumpkin flavor you want in them.

If you don’t like using artificial coloring, you can substitute the food coloring with a few spoonfuls of carrot puree instead.  Carrots are really sweet and a great addition anytime you’re making pancakes.

Then while the pancakes are on the griddle, use a few chocolate chips to create a little jack-o-lantern face on your pancakes.


Such a happy and Halloweeny breakfast!  My kids all love it every year.  Especially when I serve it with hot spiced apple cider too.  🙂
