Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, Cinnamon Roll Pancakes Recipe

I'm always trying to find new Bed and Breakfast recipes at our Colorado Springs B&B. I made this new Cinnamon Roll Pancakes recipe at our B and B this morning and they were a huge hit, hope you enjoy!


Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

CINNAMON ROLL PANCAKES

CINNAMON FILLING:
  • 4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
CREAM CHEESE GLAZE:
  • 4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
PANCAKES:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil
  • more oil for the griddle
Prepare the Cinnamon Filling:
In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour the filling into a squeeze bottle, or a zip top bag and set aside.

Prepare the Glaze:
In a small pan, heat the butter over low heat until melted. Pour the butter into a mixer and add the cream cheese; beat until almost smooth. Add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add the vanilla extract; set aside.

Prepare the Pancake Batter:
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add in the milk, buttermilk, egg and 1 Tbsp. of oil. Stir until just moistened, a few lumps remaining is fine.

Cook the Pancakes:
Preheat your griddle to 400 degrees F. Drizzle with oil and pour about a 1/3 cup batter on griddle and spread slightly to create an even circle about 4-inches in diameter. Using the squeeze bottle (if using a zip top bag snip  the corner of the bag and squeeze the filling out of the zip top bag) squeeze the filling on top of the pancake batter in a swirl.

Cook the pancakes about 2-3 minutes before turning, the trick is to wait until bubbles form and start to pop before turning them. Flip and cook pancakes for an additional 2-3 more minutes, until the other side is golden brown.

Serve pancakes with the swirl on top and drizzle with the cream cheese glaze.

Makes 3-4 servings
