The idea to make them pumpkin shaped came from here. Ideally these would be pumpkin flavoured too but canned pumpkin is pretty rare here, it’s just back in stock at Ocado so next time I place an order I will get some. I did not feel up to that effort of pureeing a pumpkin myself just for pancakes :)
Simon suggested making Moomin shaped ones by pouring batter into my Moomin cutters (seen here and bought in this Moomin cafe in Japan) but the batter seemed to stuck to the cutters as I hadn’t greased them so I only made a few. Tasty though!
