Spiced Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Combing two of my favourite fall foods together to create these incredible Spiced Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. Homemade and incredibly easy to make. Made with pumpkin and a lot of cinnamon, sweeten with honey and a big amount of pumpkin spice. The pancakes are fluffy and tender.
The cinnamon topping is equally simple: just a combination of sugar, butter and cinnamon. I decided to dollop the mixture onto the batter after flipping, resulting in melted and slightly caramelised cinnamon. Its like a cinnamon roll in pancake form.

The calendar tells me that it has been more than 5 months since I was last seen here, which made me wanted to start over. After my first few posts last year, I realised that a blog takes up quite some time (that I didn't had haha). It's the planning, the cooking, the photographing, the writing and editing. It is a lot for a full time student. I got overwhelmed and felt pressured to produce quality recipes every week.
I have always loved sharing my food and recipes with the world. I love what I eat and I want to show how delicious food can be. Since august, I have been planning and prepping recipes for a brand new start. I renamed my 'blog by Chynna" into "Chynna's kitchen", which is shorter and sounds a bit catchier. I bought a domain name and ordered a website template that I truthfully love. I have been testing and writing over 40 recipes, so I have a back-up incase I get overwhelmed again. The recipes that are coming are honestly delicious and I can't choose which one is my favourite. I hope you are as excited for this restart as I am. 

Anyway, I've been dying to share these pancakes with you all for a while now.  I've tested these pancakes so many times. Each time trying something just a little different. But this is the one. Fluffy and tender. Spiced with warming species and made complete with a buttery cinnamon topping to mimic that of a cinnamon roll. Perfect for the morning after Thanksgiving. 
The pancakes have everything you'd ever want out of a pumpkin pancake and every bite is so, so good. Perfectly sweet and all things fall. I am clearly over the moon with them, and I think you will too.


For the pancakes

- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk (you can use normal milk)
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons salted butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

For the cinnamon topping

- 6 tablespoons salted butter, room temperature
- 3 - 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, pumpkin puree, eggs, melted butter, maple syrup and vanilla. 
  2. Pour the wed ingredients into the drive ingredients and mix the batter until just combined. If the batter feels thick, you can add more butter, 2 tablespoons at the time. It's alright if there are lumps in the batter. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the cinnamon mix. Mix the butter, cinnamon and brown sugar together and transfer into a piping bag or even a sandwich bag will do. Snip a tiny portion of the corner off.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and grease with butter. Pour in about 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto the centre of the hot pan. Once bubbles appear to the surface, gently flip the pancake over and cook the other side for a minute. Use the piping bag with cinnamon butter and gently swirl the mixture onto the pancake. 
  5. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve the pancakes warm with additional butter and maple syrup. Enjoy!
