How do you make Halloween Pancakes?
Making these pancakes are very easy. Best of all you can make them the day before you want to serve and then reheat and top.
Pro tip: you want your top pancake to be on the cooler side when you go to top the pancakes or else you will end up with a blob of whipped cream.
Using a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Then add in the buttermilk, milk, eggs, and melted butter. Mix for 30 seconds and all ingredients are blended.
Separate the batter into 3 bowls. Then, make orange, green, and purple batter (Purple: 20 drops red, 15 drops blue | Green: 20 drops Green 5 drops yellow | Orange: 40 drops yellow, 15 drops red).
Spray cooking spray in a frying pan and heat over medium heat.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop and pour the batter into the pan.
Cook for 2-3 minutes until you start to see bubbles forming in the batter. Then flip and cook an additional 1-2 minutes until brown and cooked through. Remove from griddle and repeat until all the batter is used.
Lastly, add the Wilton Candy Eyeballs on top. Repeat until all the pancakes are topped.
The answer is yes! I actually almost always freeze my leftover pancakes! I store them between layers of parchment paper in a freezer safe bag or container.
To reheat frozen pancakes is simple. Place the desired number of pancakes on a plate and reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Flip the pancakes over and if they are still cool to touch then microwave an additional 30 seconds until hot.
