Family fun for Halloween breakfast or brunch these are thick American-style pancakes. While witches hats and ghosts are fun shapes too, and a bit easier, try the spider webs - they are worth the effort. Serve with a buttering of Nuttelex, plus a sprinkling of sugar and lemon juice or maple syrup, ice cream and fresh berries. #MakeMineWithNuttelex
1Sift flour then add sugar sugar (or sweetener) in a large-sized bowl and make a well in the centre.
2In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs then add milk and vanilla.
3Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients 'well 'and fold together. Mix until smooth (there may be a couple of lumps but that's okay). Set the batter aside at least 30 mins in the fridge.
4If you find the batter too thick fold a couple tablespoons of extra milk into the batter (one at a time) until reaching desired consistency. If making the web pancakes use a piping bag to pipe the shape so make sure the mixture is not too watery.
5Heat your frying pan and grease with Nuttelex.
6To make the web cut 1/4-inch hole in one bottom corner of a piping or freezer bag. For each pancake, gently squeeze bag to release approx. 2 tablespoons of batter onto hot pan in spider web shape. To get a good looking web daw an X then add a cross through it. This gives you eight “prongs” then connect by drawing wobbly weblike circles over it. Witches hats, and ghosts are fun shapes too.
7Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until pancakes are puffed and dry around edges. Turn pancakes; cook about 1 minute longer or until other side is golden brown.
8Repeat with remaining batter.
9Serve with a buttering of Nuttelex, lemon and sugar or maple syrup. Add eyes where needed with the chocolate drops. garnish with fresh berries, maple syrup or ice-cream.
