Make the pumpkin pancakes SPOOKY with Black Cinnamon Syrup. The cinnamon is a nice compliment to pumpkin pancakes but, if you make the pumpkin pancakes and serve with this syrup, you could cut down or even leave out the cinnamon in the pancakes.
In a small saucepan combine sugars, flour and cinnamon. Add vanilla and water. Over medium heat bring mixture to a boil, stirring continuously. As it heats squirt in a little of the black food coloring and mix in, add more until it’s as dark as can be (it doesn’t take much). Allow to boil for a few moments until the mixture has noticeably thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool enough to put into a plastic squeeze bottle. Syrup can be made ahead and refrigerated. Warm syrup before serving by placing the squeeze bottle in a bowl of warm water (not boiling). Let each person decorate their own pancake!
There’s nothing SCARY about making these pancakes!
