Flap Jack-o’-lanterns

Making pumpkin pancakes for/with your tots is the perfect start to a Happy Halloween!


Flap Jack-o’-lanterns

2 cups flour                                        2 eggs

Pinch of salt                                       1¾ cup Buttermilk (or milk)

2 Tbsp Sugar                                      3 Tbsp melted butter

1 Tbsp baking powder                       1/2 cup pureed, cooked pumpkin (or canned)

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or add a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon if you don’t have it)

(If you want them to look orange like a pumpkin, you can add food coloring.  I added 6 drops yellow and 3 drops red to the batter.)

Mix dry ingredients together first, then mix wet ingredients separately and add to dry ingredients to make batter.  A few lumps in the batter are good.  If you want them extra fluffy, separate the egg whites from the yolks and beat the whites into fluff then fold in separately from the mixed yolks.

Great with butter and maple sirup, and if you are really indulging, throw in some chopped pecans.       HAPPY HALLOWEEN !

  1. Adorable….oh, that reminds me….do you know the Five Little Pumpkins Fingerplay?

    My K’s adored acting it out….

    .5 Little Pumpkins sitting on a gate
    The 1st one said, “Oh,my, it’s getting late.”
    The 2nd one said, “There are witches in the air!”
    The 3rd one said, “But we don’t care!”
    The 4th one said, “Let’s run and run and run!”
    The 5th one said, “I’m ready for some fun!”
    Oooooh went the wind and OUT went the light (loud hand clap here)
    And the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight! (Kids roll away from you!)

    • Yes! Love it. She sings it in her Music class that is held at our church each Thursday. She also likes two little blackbirds. This gives me a good idea for a post : )
