Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin Pancakes

SweetBasil 47

"These make a special breakfast on cool fall mornings. My boys loved to help me cook a batch up for a 'breakfast for supper' night around Halloween. Use any and all decorations you like to make jack-o-lantern faces on the pancakes. Try broken candy bar pieces, banana slices, raisins, crasins, or chopped nuts."

  1. Stir together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, lightly beat together the milk, egg, pumpkin, and oil. Stir flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture, blending just until moistened.
  2. Heat a lightly greased griddle over medium high heat.
  3. Pour batter, 1/3 cup at a time, onto the prepared griddle. Make a jack-o-lantern face in each pancake with the chocolate chips. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 5 minutes per side.

I made this recipe exactly as written, only using lowfat buttermilk instead of regular milk. As I've learned with most oatmeal based recipes, the batter really needs to sit for about 15 minutes ...

I used half whole wheat flour half all purpose flour, applesauce instead of vegetable oil, and they were super delicious! :) I didn't have any problems with baking time either, just about five m...

These tasted great! I did follow the advice from tat2's review and left my batter to sit for about 15 minutes before cooking. They cooked up perfectly, no extra time needed. Now I'm not the best...

I agree with the previous review that they took a long time to cook. This recipe is excellent though and I'm sure I'll make it again. I added more milk - maybe another cup (I added a little at a...

I thought these were O.K., but my husband didn't really care for them. I followed the recipe exactly, but I did let the batter sit for 15 minutes, as suggested by another reviewer and I had no p...

These were VERY hearty. I don't think it's really something my family will go for again, but if you you like something that sticks to your ribs this is great.

The liquid content is way way off, the batter was so thick even after I added another half cup of milk! I put some on the griddle anyway and kept flipping them because they weren't cooking throu...

Even my picky kids will eat these. They are awesome!
