There’s nothing better than waking up to the smell of pancakes and bacon for breakfast. Pumpkin pancakes are always a favorite during the fall, and when I saw this idea at notmartha.org I knew I had to make them for Halloween!

Eating these pumpkin pancakes is so much more fun when you can draw your own design with the black cinnamon syrup.  Not surprisingly the kids LOVED showing off their Pancake Picassos.

I don’t know about you, but we love breakfast for dinner!  So before they go door to door for candy, you could make this Spooktacular breakfast for dinner!

Pumpkin Pancakes with Black Cinnamon Syrup

Yield: 16

Pumpkin Pancakes with Black Cinnamon Syrup

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 4 TBSP melted butter
  • 5 TBSP canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • few drops of orange gel food coloring
  • Black Cinnamon Syrup (recipe from Not Martha)
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup water
  • black food coloring gel

Instructions

  1. Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with no stick spray.
  2. Combine eggs, buttermilk, butter, pumpkin, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Use an electric mixer to blend ingredients.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet
  5. ingredients and blend with mixer until smooth. Add just a few drops of gel food coloring until you get a nice orange (it doesn’t take much).
  6. Pour or scoop the batter onto hot skillet, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.
  7. When the batter stops bubbling and edges begin to harden, flip the
  8. pancakes. They should be golden brown. This will take from 1 to 2 minutes.
  9. Flip the pancakes and cook other side for the same amount of time, until
  10. golden brown.
  11. Black Cinnamon Syrup
  12. In a saucepan combine all ingredients except for the food coloring gel. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously.
  13. As it starts to heat, add in a little of the black food coloring and mix in, add more until it’s as dark as can be (it doesn’t take much). Allow it to boil for a few moments until the mixture has thickened.
  14. Remove from heat and allow to cool enough to put into a Squeeze Bottle.

Notes

Note: You can make the syrup the night before and warm it by dipping the squeeze bottle in a bowl of warm water.

    My kids would love these!!! I love the orange and black color of the pancakes and syrup. Looking forward to meeting you in Napa.

  3. 3

    The chocolate spider web is so adorable! I wish I could try to recreate something similar, but I am afraid mine won’t come out so neat. I guess a pumpkin is a bit easier to draw.

  4. 4

    Those are awesome, Cheryl. You are such a fun mama!

    Wow these are adorable! Great idea for Halloween.

  8. 8

    These are adorable. I’d never be able to create such cute (and recognizable) drawings with the syrup, but I’ll just convince myself the black blobs are Halloweeny in their own way.

    I’m not a great pancake maker…I think b/c I have really bad ADD in the kitchen! Do you have any suggestions on how to alter the batter for waffles?
    Thanks!!!

  25. 25

    These look seriously awesome! I think I may be able to use these to trick my daughter into eating a vegetable…

  26. 26

    FUN!! Awesome spider. Our girls would LOVE this!!

    Due to its unique gelling property, it replaces half of the butter in this recipe, without changing the flavor.
    This all American favorites snack care package is a great gift for virtually any occasion.
