Halloween Breakfast: My Favorite Pumpkin Pancake Recipe with Whipped Cream Ghosts

Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 


  • 1½ cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt


    1. In a bowl, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt in a separate bowl. Stir into the pumpkin mixture just enough to combine.
  1. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot

For the whipped cream:

Beat one pint of heavy whipping cream with 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar until very stiff.  Once cream is very stiff, place in a quart or gallon sized Ziploc bag and twist at the top like a piping bag.  Snip one corner of the bag off with a pair of scissors and pipe ghosts on top of your pancakes.  Place two mini chocolate chips on each ghost for eyes.  Tip: Do not pipe ghosts on pancakes straight off of the grill.  Let them cool off for a few minutes so the cream does not immediately melt.
