Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

30 Oct

As I’ve mentioned before, I have this weird drive to make millions of different kinds of pancakes. I honestly have no idea why. And sadly most of my endeavors don’t turn out so well. But this morning was different. I decided to scan Pinterest for some sort of delicious looking pancake and these babies popped up. Holy crap, are you serious? Cinnamon Roll Pancakes? I was instantly curious…. do they really taste like cinnamon rolls? Do they use some sort of fancy ingredient that I don’t have? Are they going to take 2 hours to make? To my surprise I did have all the ingredients. And it didn’t look like it’d take much longer to make than normal pancakes. So did they taste like cinnamon rolls? Hells yes!

There are a couple of tips I would suggest if you’re going to make these:

#1 Unless you have a giant spatula, don’t use 3/4 cup of batter. I used 1/2 cup and it was plenty for one pancake.

#2 If you’re feeding a family, double this recipe. Using the 1/2 cup measure for each pancake, this made 4. Enough for Seth and I.

#3 Make sure to cut a very small hole in the cinnamon mixture bag. I cut mine way too huge (about 1/2 inch) which made my spirals too wide which made my pancakes hard to turn over. Think lots of SMALL spirals. Not one GIANT spiral.

#4 When melting the butter/cream cheese mixture, you will need to whisk it a lot for the butter and cream cheese bits to come together as they should. It’s not  just stirring to combine. You’ll just need to whisk vigorously for about 30 seconds. If it looks separated and weird, it’s not ruined, it just needs more whisking.

So that’s it! These really were simple to make and tasted delicious!

p.s. Please excuse the crappy picture. I had to use my camera phone and I was also too hungry to make the pancake look super fancy.

    Get OUT! Too insanely wonderful for words. I want this NOW! 😀 Pretty please?

    I love that you love pancakes. And I also feel that these look better than the rolls.

    Like I said–Get out! Or really: come here and make me some!

    Although with all those hints I bet I could do it myself!
