Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

 

Yes, you read that right, cinnamon roll pancakes. Forget any diet that you’re trying to be on, these are now your cheat meal! These are so easy to make it’s ridiculous. I wish they were more difficult then I might not make them as often, but they are just like regular pancakes but 10 times better!

 

Cinnamon Filling
-4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
-1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
-1/2 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

In a bowl mix together all ingredients then pour into a quart size zip lock bag and set aside

Cream Cheese Glaze
-4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
-2-ounces cream cheese
-3/4 cup powdered sugar
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a small pan heat the butter over medium heat until melted. Remove from heat. Mix in cream cheese (will be just slightly lumpy). Mix in powdered sugar slowly then vanilla. Set aside.

Pancakes
-1 cup flour
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 cup milk
-1 large egg
-1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

Mix together all ingredients to make batter.

-Heat a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
-Pour batter into the pan to make one pancake. The batter should be runny enough that it spreads out on its own.
-Snip one corner off the cinnamon filling zip-lock bag
-When the pancake just starts to show bubbles swirl the cinnamon filling into the pancake

-Continue to cook the pancake on that side until the bubbles start to pop.
-Quickly flip the pancake over and cook another couple minutes on the other side

 

Reheat the icing until its warm and runny again and then pour it over the pancakes.

This batter should make about 8 pancakes.

    I made these and they were the most delicious thing I have made to date for breakfast. When I ran out of the pancake batter I filled in with Aunt Jaminia–don’t take the time and make the batter because it makes all the difference and is sooooo
    yummy! CRT
