Last week Josh woke up early and asked me what I wanted for breakfast-his treat. I voted for pancakes, but told him I didn’t care what variety. He came back in the room and asked if he could make our sinful Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes. I said sure, I was going to enjoy my final week of being pregnant and indulge:) As he turned to leave the room, I had an idea. I told him to make Pumpkin Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes-a little twist on our favorite recipe.

Ingredients

For the cinnamon streusel:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into chunks

To make the pancakes:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. First, make the cinnamon streusel. In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Mix together with your hands or a fork, until you have a crumbly mixture. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, egg, pumpkin, canola oil, and vanilla extract. Add wet ingredients to the flour mixture and whisk until combined.
  4. Heat a griddle or pan to medium low. Coat with cooking spray. Drop 1/3 cup of batter onto heated skillet. Add 2 tablespoons of the cinnamon streusel. Cook on the first side until bubbles begin to form, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully flip pancake over and cover very generously with cinnamon streusel. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Continue this process to make the rest of the pancakes.
  5. Serve pancakes warm with maple syrup and butter.

  1. These cookies taste amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    I have the dough sitting in the fridge, I am wondering if that cornstarch trick works for sugar cookies….any thought?

  2. Ok. So i tied these today. They taste good, but probably are the most frustrating recipe for pancakes I’ve ever tried. I had to make a double batch for my huge family. They are just are very difficult to work with. oh well. maybe it was something I did to them, but I followed the recipe to a T just doubled it. I found also that the recipes is too think toactually cook the pancakes all the way through. They were gummy in the middle. I actually ended up having to bake them to finish them through. Maybe you can give me some pointers?

  3. These look like the best breakfast ever (if made by someone else :D)!! I very rarely make pancakes, but am lucky enough to have a wonderful boyfriend who enjoys making them. I’ll have to share this with him and hint that we need some breakfast soon!!

  4. We have not made these 3 times and they are a family favorite! My 2 1/2 year old son asks for them almost everyday! Now pumpkin is a staple on the grocery list so I can fulfill his breakfast dreams!

    Thank you

  5. I made these this morning and the taste w excellent. I don’t know how you were able to get your topping to look cooked/browned. When I put the topping on after flipping the pancakes it didn’t look cooked and I didn’t want to eat raw flour so I flipped them again to cook the topping. Did you cook your topping in a pan first then put it on top or put in under the broiler to toast the topping. Has anyone else had this problem?

  6. There is absolutely no way that the streusel will look like your picture. When you put it on and then flip the pancake, it melts the streusel and just spreads out across the pancake. It is messy and looks terrible. We LOVE these pancakes. Please tell us how you got the streusel to look like it did in the picture. Did you just put it that way on the top of the stack?

  7. 5 stars
    Yes, I made this in May LOL In quarantine 2020! They were amazing! Maybe not the easiest, quickest pancake recipe but delishous & worth the calories 🙂
