  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/4 cup flour (use GF measure for measure if needed)
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 2 cups vegan cheesecake, (We used the Daiya brand)


  • Add apple cider vinegar to a 1 cup measuring cup.  Fill the rest of the measuring cup with dairy free milk. Let this sit for 10 minutes. (This makes vegan buttermilk.) 
  • In a large bowl, add all the dry ingredients. Set aside
  • Add the buttermilk to the dry ingredients once ready and combine well. 
  • Add in the pumpkin puree and vanilla and combine well again. 
  • Chop up your vegan cheesecake into bite sized pieces. Set aside.
  • Add a small amount of dairy free butter to a skillet over medium low heat. 
  • Carefully add in and push pieces into batter.
  • Once heated, add 1/2 cup of pancake mixture to the skillet.
  • Add in cheesecake pieces to your batter. Gently cover pieces with some of the batter. (see video if needed)
  • Wait until bubbles start to form and flip.
  • Cook other side for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown and remove. 
  • Repeat until no batter remains.
  • Serve topped with butter, syrup, or any of your favorite sauces! See post for ideas.
