Ghost Pancakes

Today’s ghost recipe is 100% inspired from my countless hours surfing Pinterest.

Ghost pancakes!

Doing ghost pancakes is the reason I chose the ghost theme for this year’s Halloween week!

I used my go to pancake recipe. I have been using this recipe for over four years and wish I could give credit where credit is due but I don’t remember where I found it. My copy is a wrinkled piece of paper with stains of egg, melted butter, and syrup all over it. The text is going to be fading before I know it. This recipe makes 12 1/3 C portion pancakes, or 10 ghosts. Feel free to use your favorite pancake recipe or use a boxed mix.

Ghost Pancakes


  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 C milk
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
  • 30 chocolate chips


  1. Preheat griddle to medium-high heat. Grease with cooking spray or butter.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  3. In another bowl whisk together egg and milk. Whisk in cooled melted butter.
  4. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  5. Pour pancake batter into a measuring cup. Pour onto hot griddle into shape of ghosts. Place three chocolate chips in the form of eyes and a mouth in the ghost’s head. Flip pancakes when batter starts to set and bubbles form in the center of the pancake. Cook until both sides are golden brown.
