Ingredients

1
container (6 oz) Yoplait® Original 99% fat free orange crème yogurt
1/4
cup maple-flavored syrup
2
cups all-purpose baking mix
1 1/4
cups milk
1
egg
1
teaspoon unsweetened baking cocoa
1
teaspoon sugar
  • 1 In small bowl, mix yogurt and maple syrup until well blended. Set aside.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix baking mix, milk and egg until well blended. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the batter, the cocoa and sugar until well blended.
  • 3 Heat large nonstick electric griddle or 12-inch nonstick skillet to 375°F. Oil hot griddle.
  • 4 For each pancake, drop three 1/4 to 1/2-inch drops of dark batter about 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart forming eyes and mouth of ghost. Cook about 30 seconds. Immediately pour 1/4 cup regular batter; start the pour to cover the “eyes and mouth” and continue the pour downward to form an irregular ghostly shape. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until pancake is puffed and dry around edges. Turn pancake; cook about 1 minute longer or until other side is golden brown. Serve with syrup mixture.
