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!
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
PANCAKES (makes about 4 or 5)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 Tablespoon canola oil
- 1 large egg lightly beaten
CINNAMON FILLING: *makes enough for much more than 4 pancakes
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
- 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
CREAM CHEESE GLAZE:
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 2 ounces cream cheese
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Prepare pancake batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt
Whisk in milk, oil and egg, just until batter is moistened (a few small lumps are fine).
In a medium bowl, mix butter, brown sugar and cinnamon
Pour filling into a ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the corner of the bag
Set aside-You don't want this to remain super-liquidy (you want a consistency similar to toothpaste)
In a small saucepan, heat butter and cream cheese until melted
Whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla extract; set aside
Heat large skillet over medium-low heat and spray with nonstick spray
Scoop about 3/4 cup batter onto the skillet
When pancake has started to cook a little, swirl in the cinnamon filling with the ziploc bag that has the cut off corner
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
Transfer to a baking sheet or platter and keep in a warm oven until ready to serve
When ready to serve, spoon warmed glaze onto the top of each pancake.
