Spooky Pumpkin Pancakes
Michael has always loved a great breakfast, so we make this in honor of him. This is perfect to eat Halloween morning. You get the spices of the season, pumpkin for Halloween, and that sweetness getting you ready for all the candy you will be consuming!
*You can use whatever kind of chip you want, but we specifically used cinnamon chips by Hershey.
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 ¼ cups milk
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
½ cup Hershey Cinnamon chips
In a large bowl, mix together all of your dry ingredients. Make a well in the center of your dry mix and pour in milk a quarter cup at a time.
Next mix in the two eggs, and then your pumpkin puree. Mix until almost completely smooth, but still a bit lumpy. Now for the finale add in your caramel chips.
To make the pancakes you will want to use butter or a cooking spray to grease a frying pan. Use one large enough so you are able to make two pancakes at a time. Heat the pan on a medium high heat and pour about a ¼ cup of mix for each pancake. You will know to flip when little bubbles start to form, and then check the opposite side to make sure it reaches the same golden brown color.
Pile as many as you can on one plate and eat! You will love the warm pumpkin and melting cinnamon chips, smothered in syrup. Yum
