Ghost Pancakes for Halloween

Picture 021


My son absolutely love pancakes.  He asked for them every Saturday morning, so since Halloween is coming soon, I decided to make ghost shaped pancakes.  Why not have fun with your food.  I couldn’t find any ghost shaped cookies cutters, so I just free-handed the shape with a regular spoon.

This recipe will make more than enough pancakes.  I only use enough for about 6 and store the rest of the batter in plastic containers for later.  You may store the dry batter for up to 3 months.

Here we go:

4 cups AP flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup of sugar

To serve 6 ghost pancakes I use:

1 cup pancake batter

1 egg

1/2 cup buttermilk

blueberries for the eyes

4 tablespoon of melted butter

Mix all ingredients together with a large spoon. Grease pan with a little butter and spoon in pancake mix and make desired shape.  Once pancakes are cooked on one side, turn over and make the eyes with blueberries. 

The littlest things can make a 5 years old smile from ear to ear.  His face lit up when I placed his plate in front of him at the breakfast table.  Priceless!
