How to Make Pumpkins, Ghosts, and Spiderweb Pancakes

In a mixing bowl mix 2 cups of pancake mix with vanilla and 1 1/2 cup of water. This makes your lighter color pancake batter.

In another mixing bowl, mix the remaining pancake mix, water, and cocoa powder. This makes your darker color pancake batter.

Place a skillet on the stove on med-low heat. You want to give yourself time to create all the components of the pancakes. Spray lightly with oil.

Place batters in kitchen squeeze bottles. It’s much easier to draw the pancakes with the bottle.

You’ll want to play with how big the opening is on the bottle nozzle. The thinner the opening, the more precise the line but the flow is slower.

The use of lighter and darker colored batters helps with contrast.

Ghost pancake: using the cocoa batter, draw two dots for the ghost’s eyes.

Create webbing from each liken to the next with a dip in between. Let cook for 60 seconds on each side. These are more fragile when you flip.

Jack-o-lantern pancake: using the cocoa batter, create the eyes and nose with triangles and an open mouth with teeth.
