Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Oh my goodness! Cinnamon Roll Pancakes are amazing!  I have made them many times for my family and they are always a huge hit!  They are one of our favorite ways to start the morning!  It is like eating dessert for breakfast and that is pretty awesome! I was very thankful when I found this incredible recipe at The Baker Chick!  Many kids (and husbands) love pancakes, and when you mix them with the scrumptious taste of cinnamon rolls, you get a fantastic meal!  As I have mentioned, I am trying to eat a little healthier, but there are times when the will power gets put on hold. When I made Cinnamon Roll Pancakes this week, my rumbling tummy took over and I ended up eating two big servings. How could you not give in to a beautiful plate of butter, sugar, cinnamon, and cream cheese?  You can’t, so go ahead, make them, grab a fork and a glass of milk, and let the eating fest begin!  Cinnamon Roll Pancakes are a great way to start your day on a weekend, a special occasion, or basically on any day!  Enjoy!

  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Prepare pancake batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt
  2. Whisk in milk, oil and egg, just until batter is moistened (a few small lumps are fine).
  3. In a medium bowl, mix butter, brown sugar and cinnamon
  4. Pour filling into a ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the corner of the bag
  5. Set aside-You don't want this to remain super-liquidy (you want a consistency similar to toothpaste)

  7. Whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla extract; set aside
  8. Heat large skillet over medium-low heat and spray with nonstick spray
  9. Scoop about ¾ cup batter onto the skillet
  10. When pancake has started to cook a little, swirl in the cinnamon filling with the ziploc bag that has the cut off corner
  11. When bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more
  12. Transfer to a baking sheet or platter and keep in a warm oven until ready to serve
  13. When ready to serve, spoon warmed glaze onto the top of each pancake.
