Pumpkin Pancakes (Part Two)

filed under: Pancakes + Waffles on October 29, 2011

I just posted the most amazing and delicious pumpkin pancakes I have ever had.  Well, here is another version of pumpkin pancakes.

Those pancakes tasted like pumpkins, these look like pumpkins!


These are so easy!  I just made our favorite pancake batter and reserved 1/4 cup of it.

I added McCormick’s black food coloring to the 1/4 cup and blended well.  Then added orange food coloring to the rest of the batter.


To make the fun designs, I put the black pancake batter into a ziplock bag and cut off the tiniest of tips from the corner of the bag.

Then simply piped out whatever design I wanted onto the medium high griddle, immediately followed by some orange pancake batter.


It was easy, fun, and my kids had a blast!

So this year we are going to a Trunk & Treat at our church.  (which means we get to avoid handing out candy!)

Do you have any fun plans for Halloween?  Any cute costumes for your kiddies?  You know I am gonna want to see pictures! 🙂

    Those look great – you are so creative! You must win the fun mum award!
    We have a Fall Fest at our church, but I have blogged about some of our Irish halloween traditions, both back when I was a kid, (which included turnips) and now.

    How do you make your pancakes so thick and fluffy looking? Mine never turn out like that. I would love to try your pancake batter recipe if you can share it. Thank you 🙂

      Make sure you use a recipe that uses baking powder. 🙂

    Check out The Pioneer Woman. She stole your idea with no credit which of course is normal for her.

    Wow! This pumpkin pancakes recipe is incredible! I’m seriously so inspired right now. I need to add cinnamon to recipe and it would be perfect. Thx for sharing!
