About this recipe: These fluffy American style pancakes make a special breakfast on cool autumn mornings. My boys loved to help me cook a batch for a 'breakfast for supper' night around Halloween. Use any and all decorations you like to make jack-o-lantern faces on the pancakes. Try broken chocolate bar pieces, banana slices, raisins, dried cranberries or chopped nuts.


Serves: 6 

  • 120g plain flour
  • 80g porridge oats
  • 4 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 250ml milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 180g pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 125g chocolate chips

  1. Stir together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, lightly beat together the milk, egg, pumpkin and oil. Stir flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture, blending just until moistened.
  2. Heat a lightly greased flat griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.
  3. Pour batter, 5 tablespoons at a time, onto the prepared griddle pan. Make a jack-o-lantern face in each pancake with the chocolate chips. Cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
