I’ll link some recipes at the end for you to try. This is the perfect, easy dessert and anyone can make it.
Pumpkin Pancake Cake
This recipe is kinda healthy, but not really. The pancakes are flourless and don’t have too much sugar in them. But then there’s the cream cheese…I don’t know is it healthy? Is it not? I think I’m pretty much okay if it’s not super healthy.
Now let’s get started.
How To Make Pumpkin Pancake Cake
Remember how you usually stack pancakes on top of each other on special mornings, let’s call them Sunday mornings when you think you know what real happiness feels like?
That’s pretty similar. You’ll stack some pancakes on top of one another you’ll put some cream cheese frosting in between the floors and you’ll let that sit in the fridge for a few hours.
Let’s recap here, here’s how you make the pancake cake:
- make pumpkin pancakes or your favorite type of pancakes and let them cool off
- make frosting out of cream cheese, vanilla and honey, add some orange juice if you like it (I personally LOVE IT, so my recommendation: just do it, okay?)
- arrange pancakes in layers in an airtight container or a smaller baking tray (the recipe isn’t for a huge cake!). You’ll need to cut some pancakes in half or do like me and just rip them with your bare hands into pieces like an animal and then layer.
- add the cream cheese frosting on top of the first layer
- then a second layer of pancakes and then a second layer of frosting
- all done – put it in a fridge and wait for it…for about two hours
How To Eat The Cake
Then you’ll have the cake and maybe share some with the family. You can make more of this and bring it to a party.
But let’s be real here. Even if you eat this all by yourself after dinner, because you need something sweet – nobody will judge you. Maybe they will but who cares? You have pancake cake.
You can make this recipe even more interesting by adding some chopped nuts like walnuts or pecans on top…or some type of berries. Although, I don’t know whether berries would go with this fall flavor. Let me know if you try it.
I hope you enjoy this oatmeal pumpkin pancake cake, let me know if you have questions or if you made it leave me a comment on Pinterest or Instagram – I’d love to know how this recipe turns out for you!
