  • skillet or non stick pan
  • 16 ounce squeeze bottle
  • toothpicks or a ziploc bag


  • 1 ¼ cup flour
  • 1 ¼ cup milk
  • 1 egg, large
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ounce chocolate bar or chocolate syrup


  • In a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, mix well.
  • In a bowl, add the butter and milk and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Or until the butter is melted.
  • Add warmed milk, melted butter and egg to dry ingredients. Use a whisk to mix well, making sure most clumps are broken up.
  • Transfer the batter with a large spoon into the squeeze bottle.
  • Heat a skillet at 200 degrees Fahrenheit (if using stovetop, heat on medium). Draw the outline of a ghost and quickly fill in the body.
  • Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Repeat until batter is done.
  • If using chocolate bar or chips, microwave in a bowl for 30 second intervals. Use a spoon to stir between each interval until chocolate is melted.
  • Use toothpicks to draw spooky faces on the pancakes. Alternatively, add the chocolate to one end of a Ziploc bag, seal the bag and snip the end of the corner to use a a piping bag.
  • Serve immediately!

  • Make sure the milk is at room temperature when adding to the bowl, otherwise it can cause the butter to seize up and clump, which will clog the squeeze bottle. 
  • Some more ideas for Halloween shaped pancakes are pumpkins, witch's hat and mummies. 
  • This pancake batter will be on the thinner side so it flows easily out of the squeeze bottle and fills in the body of your design.
  • Make sure to break up any clumps, even small ones, this prevents it from clogging the tip of the squeeze bottle.
  • Draw the images quickly and cook at a low temperature (200 F) so the pancakes cook evenly.
  • Keep the tip of the squeeze bottle close to the griddle surface, this allows for better control when outlining your design.
