Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

 
   I love breakfast foods, especially pancakes. They remind me of my Momma. She used to make us pancakes all the time when we were little. Mom always used Bisquick pancake mix, and it is what I now use too. I love it. They have great flavor and they're a cinch to make.

   When I saw these Cinnamon Roll Pancakes on Pinterest (of course) I thought they looked amazing and had to make them asap. I used our trusty box of Bisquick for the pancake batter instead of using the homemade one on the recipe. Let me just tell you... These pancakes are FABULOSITY! I've now made them 3 weekends in a row because they're SO good!



Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
Recipe adapted from: Recipe Girl

For Pancakes:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon canola oil
1 large egg, lightly beaten

(OR use a boxed pancake batter)

Cinnamon Filling:
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

Cream Cheese Glaze:
4 Tablespoons butter
2 ounces cream cheese
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


DIRECTIONS:
Prepare Cinnamon Filling first: In a medium bowl, mix butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Scoop the filling into a small zip baggie and set aside. (You want this to rest and 'set up' while your preparing the other ingredients. Its best if it gets a little thicker, you dont want it liquidy)

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)
OR If using a boxed mix, prepare according to package directions.

Prepare Cream Cheese glaze: In a medium glass or microwave-safe bowl, heat the butter and cream cheese until melted. Whisk together until smooth, then whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla. Set aside.


Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Scoop about 1/2 cup of pancake batter onto the skillet. Snip the corner of your cinnamon filling baggie and squeeze a spiral of the filling onto the top of the pancake. When bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip carefully with a spatula and cook until lightly browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer pancake to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while you make the rest of the pancakes.

When ready to serve, spoon warmed cream cheese glaze on top of each pancake. Enjoy!

I made these yesterday. And today. My husband doesn't like pancakes and when I got him to try them yesterday, he ate the last three we had and wanted to know why I hadn't doubled it. Ha ha! I had enough cinnamon stuff leftover and almost enough of the cream cheese to do the full batch today. Love these!

carolinaheartstrings said...

Those look so amazing! I bet your family loved them.

jill said...

We just finished eating these and they are DELICIOUS! Our's weren't nearly as pretty as yours but they sure taste good! Thanks.

Stephanie Milberger said...

We made a batch yesterday and LOVED them. They weren't as pretty as yours, though. Oh well. My kids didn't care!

Traci said...

I made these for breakfast today for my daughter's birthday. She loves everything cinnamon roll, they were a hit! Thanks for the inspiration!!

Annie said...

Having these for breakfast as I type. Like other posters, mine weren't as pretty, but they are absolutely delicious! I used a blueberry pancake batter from a box mix, and I think the extra bit of blueberry might be making it just a tad more awesome! Thanks for the recipe.

easkinner83 said...

i tried but wasnt very successful, how did you keep the brown sugar mix from burning when you flipped the pancake over? mine just burned so bad!?!?!?

Anonymous said...

I made these this weekend and they were great but had the same problem as easkinner. Any tips to keep the brown sugar mixture from burning when you flip the pancakes??

I teach a summer rec class with parents/children and would love to do this. How many pancakes is this supposed to make? Also awaiting answer about burning. Meanwhile I'm trying these myself!

Holly said...

Hi ladies. Sorry just getting back to you. About the filling burning.. I didnt have that problem. Maybe you could try turning them temp down to low when you cook them. Hope this helps! As far as servings, I believe this recipe makes about 6 pancakes.

I made these for my family for dinner and everyone LOVED them, they were a huge hit. Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe!

Countrycooker said...

Ok so I had some trouble with the filling. First it was way to runny, second it ran everywhere on my griddle & none of the pancakes had any filling in them! The taste was great but the process & presentation were horrible!! I want to try this again so I think I'm going to reduce the butter in the filling by half & I'm going to let the pancakes set up a bit longer before I swirl the filling. Other than that we all loved the way they tasted!!

I'm making them for my girlfriend's birthday. :) Thanks for the post!

MrsDLo said...

I made these for my son and nieces this morning. They were a big hit. They were not as pretty as the pictures you posted,(filling seemed to go everywhere)but they were delicious!May need to get one of those pastry tools to help control the distribution of the filling.

Jeni Golomb said...

I made these this morning and agree with Mrs. DLo. The filling seemed to get everywhere. But they were yummy. My 6yo said, "These aren't yummy, these are AWESOME!" One question-- I have LOTS of filling and lots of frosting left. How long do you think I can save it? Do you think it would freeze?

Holly said...

Hi Jeni! As far as the filling goes, it's important you let it stand atleast 15 minutes or so before using. It thickens as it stands. Sorry yours ran everywhere. Let it stand for a good while and you should be good. As far as long it lasts, I'm not sure. I haven't tried freezing it.

Duck Girl said...

LOVE! Next time I'll double the pancake batter and keep the rest the same cause I have lots of leftover frosting and cinnamon. Had a big problem figuring out how big a hole to make in the ziplock bag. ROFL Once I figured that out the last couple looked decent. :)
