Halloween Confetti Pumpkin Pancakes

affiliate

I’m made my fair share of pumpkin pancakes and I’ve finally figured out my perfect recipe (at least for now!). My first requirement was that it used a whole can of pumpkin. I’m not about to waste my time on a pancake recipe that uses a tablespoon or two of pumpkin. It took some messing around with ratios to find a good batter consistency that tasted like pumpkin with a bit of spice. They are dense and a little creamy thanks to the pumpkin which also adds a nice sweetness.Pumpkin, Spice & everything nice come together for a Halloween breakfast treat of pumpkin pancakes jazzed up with black & orange sprinkle confettiTo make things a little more fun for Halloween I added in black and orange sprinkles. Mary is my new kitchen assistant and adding sprinkles to things is her top priority. Add the sprinkles in at the very end or they’ll start to dissolve. The last few pancakes might be a bit on the streaky side anyway.Pumpkin, Spice & everything nice come together for a Halloween breakfast treat of pumpkin pancakes jazzed up with black & orange sprinkle confetti

I like to mix up my batter in a large pyrex measuring cup/bowl. The 8 cup one is big enough to hold all the batter and the pour spout makes it easy to get the batter where you want it. Not that I don’t still make a huge mess… Depending on how wet your pumpkin is you might need to give the griddle a bit of a shake to distribute the batter a bit.

Now that it’s just me and the girls a batch of pancakes is way too much food. Luckily they freeze really well. I set up my cooling racks and after we’re done eating I let the rest cool completely. Then stack them up and put them in a freezer bag. Pop them in the toaster (make sure you don’t make giant pancakes!) and you’ve got an easy breakfast for the week. Mary enjoys then with whipped cream and a scattering of sprinkles.Pumpkin, Spice & everything nice come together for a Halloween breakfast treat of pumpkin pancakes jazzed up with black & orange sprinkle confetti
