How fun are these spider web pancakes for Halloween? I’m sure your kids will love them. And they secretly eat some hidden veggies too, as they’re made with pumpkin. Another bonus: these Halloween pancakes are vegan. On this page I’m sharing the recipe for Halloween spider web pancakes.
If there’s one ingredient that has the word Halloween written all over it, it’s pumpkin. October is also pumpkin season and as Halloween is celebrated on the 31st of October it fits right in. I used a few tablespoons of mashed pumpkin in these pancakes. Great to let your kids eat some more veggies without them noticing it. And the mashed pumpkin gives these pancakes a beautiful orange color.
The web is created with chocolate dough, so they’re just as edible as the rest of the pancake.
Recipe Halloween spider web pancakes
Ingredients (for 4 portions):
125 grams mashed pumpkin
250 ml almond milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
250 grams flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon or mixed spice)
50 grams dark chocolate
30 ml almond milk
2 tablespoons flour
Coconut oil for frying
Put the mashed pumpkin, milk, maple sirup, apple cider vinegar and vanilla extract in a bowl. Use a whisk to mix it all together. Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda and whisk again. Set aside.
Melt the dark chocolate au-bain-marie or in 30 second intervals in the microwave. Mix in the almond milk and the flour. Put the chocolate mixture in a squeeze bottle.
Warm a frying pan on medium fire. Melt some coconut oil.
Use a sauce spoon to but the amount of batter for one pancake in the pan. If your frying pan is big enough you can bake 2 or 3 pancakes at the same time.
Create a spider web pattern on the pancake before flipping them. Shortly fry on the other side.
