Halloween Spiderweb Pancakes


Make Halloweekend morning a little more fun with these easy Halloween Spiderweb Pancakes! Buttermilk pancakes are great for any occasion, but once you add the creepy-looking spider web to the pancakes, they have the spooky factor that is perfect for Halloween. 

You don’t need any art skills to whip up a batch of these easy pancakes. All you need is just a few drops of food coloring and a squeeze bottle with a slim tip. I recommend using gel food coloring that allows for easy mixing without thinning out the batter. Heat a nonstick pan and lightly grease with butter. Once the pan is hot, draw a spider web with the black-colored batter. Cook until set. Then, pour the uncolored batter over and cook until the pancake starts to bubble. Flip and cook the other side. Repeat. Have fun with it!

To make the Halloween Spiderweb Pancakes, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Halloween Spiderweb Pancakes


Preheat oven and place baking sheet in it


Place a baking sheet on the middle oven rack; preheat the oven to 250 °F.


Mix dry ingredients


In a bowl, whisk together 2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder, 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt.


Mix wet ingredients


In a measuring cup, whisk together 2 ½ cups buttermilk, 2 large eggs, and 3 tablespoon melted butter.


Combine wet and dry ingredients


Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and whisk to combine until smooth.


Color one cup of batter


Transfer 1 cup of the prepared batter to a separate bowl. Add in 2 to 3 drops of food coloring and a few drops of water, and whisk until evenly colored. Transfer the colored batter to a zip-top plastic bag or a squeeze bottle.


Draw spider web


Over medium heat, heat a medium nonstick skillet and lightly butter it. If using a zip-top plastic bag, cut a small hole in the bottom corner of the bag. Draw a spider web squeezing the black batter onto the skillet. Cook until set for about 1 minute.




Pour ⅓ cup of undyed batter over, completely covering the web. Cook until the pancake is covered in bubbles for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook until cooked through for about 1 minute. Transfer to the baking sheet in the oven to keep warm. Repeat.



Serve with pure maple syrup, if you wish, and enjoy!
