Pancakes are delicious on their own but adding a buttery, cinnamon streusel top and baking it in a single dish (no flipping necessary!) really takes this recipe to the next level. This cinnamon streusel pancake casserole was made for those who like a hands-off weekend breakfast approach. It’s quick, easy, feeds a crowd, and most importantly, delicious.
The batter comes together quickly thanks to Bisquick Baking Mix, which gets extra flavor from brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and melted butter.
The thing that takes this casserole to the next level is the cinnamon streusel topping. Just butter, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
The streusel come together with some larger, pebbly pieces, as well as some finer crumbs. If yours doesn’t clump together as well as you’d like, try popping the topping in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
The casserole bakes up golden, with some sunken spots of streusel throughout, so each mouthful has some tender pancake and crunchy, sweetly spiced streusel.
