Halloween Buttermilk Candy Corn Pancakes by sewlicioushomedecor.com

Let’s talk candy corn for a minute.  I made buttermilk pancakes and turned them into candy corn pancakes just by adding a little food coloring.  Like I did with these candy corn cupcakes. I’ve even been busy in the craft room making a candy corn wreath and candy corn milk bottles.

Yes, that’s right I make decorations to match my food. Halloween only comes once a year so why not go all out, no?

I have a secret ingredient to make them taste like you ordered them in a restaurant.

Halloween Buttermilk Candy Corn Pancakes

It’s buttermilk. That gives them a homemade flavor you won’t get by using water or regular milk. The other secret is making the batter the day before. Letting it sit overnight allows the buttermilk to fully absorb into the ingredients.

I’ve also made them without letting them sit overnight when I’ve been in a hurry. So, if you don’t have time to make them ahead of time……no worries.  They are very good even if you serve them immediately.

But if you get the chance I highly recommend trying them overnight.

To make the pretty candy corn colors you just divide the batter into two bowls and add a little food coloring to each bowl. You’ll do this right before you are ready to make them. If you let the batter sit overnight you will not add the food coloring until the next day.

I’m already thinking of other variations. Wouldn’t red, white, and blue pancakes be so cute?! Red and green with a matching wreath? Stay tuned, you  know what’s coming!
