My kids LOVE pancakes and really LOVE cinnamon rolls. So when I saw this recipe I knew they would love it and they did. I have made it a couple of times, each time learning something new. So I will give you my tips and hints, take ’em or leave ’em!
* Please do not melt the butter. Please listen when the recipe says that it should be a “toothpaste” constancy. ELSE you will have a bubbly buttery sugary batter mess on your hands…..or should I say your griddle. Lesson learned……
* Please be sure to swirl your cinnamon yumminess not TOO near the edge of your pancake BECAUSE IF it gets to close and spills over your griddle WILL be a bubbly buttery sugary batter mess and you will just have to sit there and watch and smell the sugar burning and then soak it for a while, then scrub it a while….lesson learned.
* I did not attempt the 3/4 c. batter, leading to a HUGE pancake. I am sure it would be yummy. I did 1/4 c. batter, which yielded 10 pancakes. Worked for us….
* I do a batch and a half for my 4 boys and I, works out great. NO need to make more butter mixture though, that is just the right amount! You will need a bit more frosting, I just added a splash of milk and a bit more powdered sugar and it worked well.
1 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. milk
1 TB. oil
1/2 c. melted butter (See my note above….)
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 TB. cinnamon
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl with a whisk. Add the milk, oil and eggs. Mix with the whisk JUST till combined, leaving some lumps.
Combine the butter, sugar and cinnamon. Mix well. You want this to be about the consistency of toothpaste. Put in a ziplock bag.
Heat griddle to 350*. Place about 3/4 c. batter onto hot buttered griddle. Snip the corner of the bag and squeeze a spiral of filling onto the pancake. (See picture above.) Watch for some bubbles to form, then flip and cook a few more minutes. Top with frosting.
4 TB. butter
2 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
sprinkle of cinnamon (my addition)
Melt the butter and beat with the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Drizzle over warm pancakes. ENJOY! 🙂
