Every Halloween Homemaker knows that almost everyone loves pancakes for breakfast, and what Halloweenie wouldn't love these fluffy, bright-orange pumpkin pancakes with a spooky black cinnamon syrup on top?! This amazing recipe comes from Stephanie at Girl Versus Dough, and it's a keeper!
According to Stephanie's recipe, here's what you'll need:
Ingredients for the syrup:
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup water
  • Black food coloring
For the pancakes:
  • 2 cups original Bisquick® mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Red and yellow (or orange) food coloring
  1. In a small saucepan, bring sugars, flour, cinnamon, vanilla and water to a boil, stirring constantly. Slowly add enough black food coloring to completely dye the mixture black. Stir constantly while boiling for a few more minutes until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together Bisquick mix, milk, eggs, pumpkin puree, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and food coloring until well combined. Spoon batter onto hot greased griddle; cook each side until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes each side.
  3. Transfer to serving plates; top with syrup and serve warm
Thanks, Stephanie!
