Halloween Pumpkin Chocolate Pancakes

Halloween is coming, so I suggest you treating your relatives with some very delicious and flavoury pumpkin and chocolate pancakes. I decided to cook them in a pumpkin form, but if get creative, you can make pancakes with web, skulls, ghosts or bats.


  • Pumpkin
    300 g
  • Egg
    2 pcs
  • Milk
    375 ml
  • Flour
    2 tbsp
  • Dough loosener
    1 tsp
  • Vanillin
    1 pinch
  • Salt
    1 pinch
  • Sugar
    6 tbsp
  • Cocoa powder
    1 tbsp
  • Sunflower oil
    2 tbsp


  • 1. First, lets cook pumpkin puree. Wash one pumpkin, peel it and chop it into equal pieces. Put them into a saucepan and cover them with cold water.
  • 2. Without covering, simmer pumpkin over medium fire for 10 minutes. Then slack the fire till minimum, cover the saucepan and keep on simmering until soft for 10-15 minutes more. Pour the water out, throw vegetables into the strainer and cool them down completely.
  • 3. In a bowl combine milk and two eggs.
  • 4. Whisk the mixture until smooth.
  • 5. Add sieved wheat flour, salt, dough loosener and vanillin into the batter.
  • 6. Mix the batter until smooth. Pour one third of the batter into another bowl. Add two tablespoons of sugar and sieved cocoa powder there, mix again.
  • 7. Mash the rest of the pumpkin with a hand blender. Add pumpkin puree into the rest part of the batter.
  • 8. Mix the batter with the puree and add 4 tablespoons of sugar into it.
  • 9. Now lets fry pancakes. To make it easier, pour the batter into some bottles with narrow mouths or icing bags. Oil a frying pan with a cooking brush. Pour some chocolate batter onto heated surface making eyes, mouth and nose.
  • 10. Pour pumpkin batter above carefully making a pumpkin.
  • 11. Fry them for 30-60 seconds over the medium fire, then turn crumpets over.
  • 12. Cook all crumpets this way. Serve them with chocolate or berry sauce or maple syrup. Enjoy your meal!
