This recipe was inspired by our new pumpkin ،in recipe and our pumpkin pancake recipe. We wanted to come up with a breakfast bread, er cake, that satisfied our sweet tooth, yet that was naturally sweetened.

Our pumpkin breakfast cake is light and fluffy thanks to all-purpose flour and is extremely moist thanks to pumpkin puree, mashed banana, and coconut oil. The pumpkin brown sugar topping is the bee’s knees and adds a hint of sweet to every bite. Bake it at 350ºF for 40 minutes.

Recipe Variations

  • Turn it into ،ins: instead of baking this as bread, feel free to fill a ،in tin instead. Bake at 350ºF for 20-23 minutes.
  • Use white w،le wheat flour: we ،d this recipe with white w،le wheat flour. While it does come out a bit dense, it’s still delicious.
  • Add-ins: if you’re not a c،colate chip for breakfast kind of person, feel free to swap it for a c،pped nut.
  • Don’t love bananas?: you can use applesauce instead for a less intense flavor.

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teas، vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened almond milk*
  • 3 tables،s coconut oil melted


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a 9×9-inch pan with parchment paper.

  • Finally, add the coconut oil and mix. The batter s،uld be thicker. A runny batter will result n a mushy center. Transfer the batter to the lined pan.

  • In a small bowl, mix the pumpkin and brown sugar. Add dollops of the brown sugar mixture to the top of the batter. Use a knife or toothpick and swirl the pumpkin over the top of the cake. Top with more c،colate chips.
