Do you ever search Pinterest or other social media sites and see a photo and think ‘I MUST MAKE THAT’ – of course you do! This is one that you must try – Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. It may be the best breakfast/dessert that we have had in a long time.
Krusteaz pancake mix
1 stick of butter (unsalted)
1/2 tbls. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 oz cream cheese at room temp.
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Step 1 – Start off by preparing the cinnamon filling. In a small bowl stir together 1/2 stick of unsalted melted butter, 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar and a 1/2 tbls. of ground cinnamon. Once mixed spoon the mixture into a quart-sized ziplock bag and set aside.
Step 2 – Next up make the cream cheese glaze. Heat 1/2 stick of unsalted butter over low heat until melted. Turn off the burner and add 2 oz of cream cheese and whisk until smooth. Sift 3/4 cup of powdered sugar into your pan and then add 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly. Set aside.
Step 4 -Make your pancake mix, follow the directions on the box. We used Krusteaz (our favorite brand.)
Step 5 – Let’s make some cinnamon roll pancakes! Heat a large nonstick skillet (medium heat) spray with cooking spray. Once hot make your pancakes, snip the end of the cinnamon filling baggy and once your pancakes are bubbling add your filling. Start at the top of the pancake and make a swirl. You can see our photo to get an idea of how it should look. Cook until bubbles begin popping and then flip over and cook an additional 2 minutes.
When you place your pancake on your plate you will see the cinnamon swirl. Fill your swirl with the delicious glaze. As you can see from our photo – we were very generous.
