Recipe: Pumpkin Spiced Streusel Pancakes

It’s another pumpkin recipe! This time with pancakes! (Pumpkin pancakes, try saying that five times fast…) Here is a new way to incorporate the season into your breakfast. This fantastic recipe not only includes pumpkin pancakes, but also a delicious spiced streusel to cover those pancakes. The streusel is cooked onto the pancakes making it slightly crispy over the fluffy pumpkiny pancakes. These pancakes are a mouthwatering meal for either breakfast or dessert and you should make a lot because you will want more than one! Click below to get started!


  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch of ginger
  • pinch of clove
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into chunks


  1. To make the cinnamon streusel, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter in a medium bowl. Mix together until you have a crumbly mixture. Set aside.
  2. Then to make the pancakes, mix together the milk, pumpkin, egg, oil and vinegar (I used a food processor to mix the wet ingredients). In a separate bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, allspice, cinnamon, ginger and salt, then stir it into the pumpkin mixture.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. The batter is pretty thick, so try to spread it as thin as possible. (Note: use a spatula to help you work with the batter)
  4. Sprinkle the streusel overtop of the pancake as it is cooking. Let the pancake cook for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles form in the pancake. Then flip it over let it cook another 1-2 minutes, or until the pancake is golden brown.  Continue for each pancake.
  5. When finished, sprinkle more streusel over the pancake stack to add even more sweetness.
