We're a big pancake family; we eat them at least twice a week, and often four or five times. Generally I stick to the round variety, but during holidays it's fun to shake it up a bit. This week we had Carve-Your-Own Jack-o-lantern Pumcakes. Or Pancakes. Whatever.
Each person got one pumpkin-shaped pancake, and then carved a face in it before eating. It doesn't sound like much, but the kids were crazy about it, and it's certainly easier than carving an actual pumpkin!
Here's my pancake recipe: Buttermilk Pancakes
Then you just have to dye a little bit of the batter green (no more than 1/2 cup), and the rest orange, and make some nice pumpkin shapes.
Serve them up nice and hot, and go at the carving!
