Sunday Pancakes Turned Spooky

As you guys already know, my children celebrate Pancake Sunday each and every Sunday. This past Sunday my soon to be 5-year-old ate 8 pancakes and still wanted more.
That same little boy will be celebrating his birthday on the 16th of October. When I asked him what he wanted for his special dinner he said “ how about pancakes!”. So in honor of his birthday I’m sharing our pancakes with you guys.

  • ½ c Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ c All- Purpose Flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Baking soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • ½ C Buttermilk
  • ½ 2% Milk
  • Mix all ingredients together, don't over mixPour onto a hot skillet.
  • Flip them when they start to bubble.
  • The second side cooks much faster than the first.

I've cooked with eggplant once. A veggie lasagna. This recipe sounds really good, I never really knew what else to do with an eggplant. And I love the spooky pancakes, they look delish!

I like these a lot more than the spooky fingers. (smile)

I want to try that eggplant. A new way with eggplant sounds good to me.

Stop by my blog, please, and pick up a well deserved reward.

I bought some of these mini eggplants a while back too. They're too cute to not buy. I shall give this stuffed eggplant recipe a try next time. The bats are so cute! Haha

oh, how i love pancakes. good for you for sneaking some whole wheat flour in there (and making them even more fun with cute bats). the wee little eggplants look scrumptious too--awesome filling choices!

Eggplant is something I don't cook that often, but I like your combination of ingredients and will certainly be trying your recipe. Thanks...

If the eggplant survived our snows, I will pick some up tomorrow - that looks mouth-watering. Happy birthday to your little guy and go pancakes!

Oh your eggplant looks sooo good. I love eggplant but I'm the only one in the house who does so I don't make it too often. Bet I could make this for just me!

Tell your son happy belated birthday, I'm an October baby too!
