The first time I had Trader Joe’s Pancake Bread, it was at a friends house who invited

my family for brunch.

It was so delicious with a moist yet dense cake and the most delicious cinnamon sugar, crunchy topping.

Being a huge Trader Joe’s fan, who regularly shops there, I knew right there this was one recipe I had to duplicate.

After two tries, this version was the winner.

My husband and son loved this version and said the same thing I did that it really tasted just like the one they had at my friends house that she bought from Trader Joe’s.

 

 

This recipe is simple with basic pantry ingredients.

As described on their label, it’s a twist between a stack of buttermilk pancakes baked into a sweet, moist loaf cake. It is! Really!

That’s what this tastes like. It’s now become our favorite loaf cake.

If you like the taste of cinnamon, you will surely love the cinnamon crumb topping.

To jazz things up a bit, serve while still warm and scoop some vanilla ice cream on top for a more decadent dessert. But, our favorite is slathered with butter for breakfast or brunch. Hey, anyway is the right way with this wonderful, sweet bread.
