Delicious Cinnabun Pancakes Recipe

Special pancakes are one of my favorite things to make. But I only make them once in awhile since they're not really the easiest thing to make. Nevertheless, they are fun to cook. The cinnabun (cinnamon bun) pancakes is one of those pancakes that are fun to make requiring a little creativity. They're tasty, too.

Delicious Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Pancake Batter Recipe (or just use a premix package):
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Large Egg
Cinnamon Swirl:
  • 1/2 cup Butter (melted)
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Ground Cinnamon

  • 4 tablespoon Butter (melted)
  • 2 oz Cream Cheese
  • 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Mix the pancake batter in a bowl thoroughly and set aside.

Mix the cinnamon swirl ingredients in a separate bowl. Take a plastic sandwich bag or a Ziploc storage bag and snip a bottom corner. This bag will be the piping tube to layout the cinnamon swirl on the pancake.

Mix the glaze topping thoroughly. Then set aside.

In a lightly greased skillet, cook pancake over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. While the pancake is cooking, carefully pour the cinnamon swirl mix into the plastic storage bag. Pinch the the snipped corner until ready to pipe to avoid spill. After 1-2 minutes, pipe the cinnamon on top of the pancake and let cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Then flip the pancake and let cook for another 1-2 minutes. Serve pancakes with the swirls up. The cinnamon swirls will carmelize and become kinda crunchy. Yum.

Top the pancake with the glaze and serve.
