Pumpkin-Shaped Pancakes with Orange Syrup
- 2 cups All purpose flour
- 2/3 cup real maple syrup
- 1/3 cup light corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/8 teaspoon orange gel food color
- 1 cup half-and-half
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Halloween Pancakes Recipe
To start off, let’s make the orange syrup. In a 1-quart saucepan, heat the maple syrup, corn syrup, and butter over medium-low heat until the butter is melted. Remove from heat and stir in the orange gel food color. Set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together the half-and-half and lemon juice and let it stand for 2 minutes. Then, add the Bisquick mix, sugar, baking powder, egg yolks, and vanilla. Use a wire whisk or fork to blend the ingredients until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips.
In a separate small bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the pancake batter.
Heat a griddle or a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Grease it with melted butter and place a pumpkin pancake mold onto the griddle with the handle up. Heat until hot.
For each pancake, pour 1/3 cup of batter into the mold on the hot griddle. Cook until bubbles break on the surface and the edges just begin to dry. Remove the mold and carefully flip the pancake. Cook for about 1 minute or until golden brown.
Serve the pumpkin-shaped pancakes with the homemade orange syrup for a sweet and festive Halloween breakfast.
Tip: For best results, spoon the Bisquick mix into a dry-ingredient measuring cup without sifting. Level it with a straight-edged knife or spatula. Do not pack or tap the Bisquick mix into the cup.
Tip: To test the griddle temperature, sprinkle it with a few drops of water. If the bubbles jump around, the heat is just right to start cooking the Halloween pancakes.
Tip: When separating eggs for this recipe, crack them one at a time and place each white into a custard cup to ensure it is free of yolk before transferring it to the mixing bowl.
Halloween pancakes are a delightful way to add a touch of spookiness to your breakfast table. Whether you choose the pumpkin-shaped pancakes with orange syrup or the fluffy pumpkin pancakes with black cinnamon syrup, these recipes are sure to impress both kids and adults alike.
