Ready In:
16 pancakes




  • Pour 1 teaspoon of batter on the grill in kind of an elongated oval shape. Right next to it pour another teaspoonful. These are the eyes.
  • Allow "eyes" to cook until they are bubble and looking dry around the edges.
  • Pour 1/4 c batter over the "eyes" pulling the batter down at the bottom to make a chin. Optionally to make a more uniform chin you can choose to arrange the eyes so the chin falls into the corner of the pan and use that for shaping the chin.
  • Cook until bubbly and edges are dry. Turn and cook until golden brown.

  1. This is a fun way to make pancakes. I used your recipe #459270 459270 for the batter. Served with Karo syrup but they tasted better plain.
  2. I love recipes that use just a few ingredients and go together quickly. I used Bisquick Heart Smart and skim milk. My pancakes looked more like a cross between an alien (the "eyes") and Casper the Friendly Ghost (shape of the pancake), but I've never said I was an artist in the kitchen, LOL. We had a lot of fun trying this recipe and I think it would be fun to make again with my niece as she would really get a kick out of this!
  3. A fun way to make pancakes for the kids. I made pumpkins and ghosts, but they didn't turn out photo worthy - SORRY! I'll try again and post if I can get something to work! **went to market tag***


Married mother of twins. I very seldom ever use recipes as they are written, always modifying and adjusting them. Many times I will take three or four different recipes and come up with a new recipe based on those. <img src="">
