  • 1 large egg
  • 80g pumpkin purée (tinned)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 65ml milk
  • 1 heaped tablespoon plain yoghurt 
  • 85g plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice powder
  • Pinch of fine salt
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon softened butter

Serve with:

  • M&S Streaky Bacon
  • Maple Syrup
  • Fruit


  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the egg, pumpkin purée, vegetable oil, both sugars, milk and yoghurt.
  2. Whisk the ingredients together until smooth before adding the dry ingredients, plain flour, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice and salt.
  3. Whisk again until you have a smooth batter. Transfer around a third of the mixture into another bowl. 
  4. To this bowl, sift in the cocoa powder and loosen with a few splashes of milk. 
  5. Using a funnel, pour each mixture into a squeezy bottle. If the mixture is too thick add a little milk, but don’t make it too runny or it won’t hold its shape when you pipe the designs.
  6. Heat a non stick frying pan on low heat. 
  7. Once warm, brush with a little butter then using the cocoa batter first pipe the outline of the spooky shape you are creating. 
  8. Fill in the gaps with the pumpkin batter and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. When you see bubbles starting to form, it’s time to flip and cook the other side for another minute or so. 
  9. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with kitchen paper and continue to make more pancakes. Serve with streaky bacon, a drizzle of maple syrup and fruit.
