2. Cinnamon Roll Pancakes:

If you’re a fan of cinnamon rolls, then you’ll love these cinnamon roll pancakes.

Ingredients:

For the Pancakes:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

For the Cinnamon Filling:

  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

For the Cream Cheese Glaze:

  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Cinnamon Filling: In a medium bowl, mix melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Scoop the filling into a quart-sized heavy zip baggie and set it aside.
  2. Prepare the Pancake Batter: In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk in the milk, oil, and egg just until the batter is moistened.
  3. Cook the Pancakes: Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium-heat and spray with nonstick spray. Use a 1/3 cup measure to add the batter to the pan. Use the bottom of the scoop to spread the batter into a circle.
  4. Add the Cinnamon Filling: Snip the corner of your baggie of cinnamon filling and squeeze the filling into the open corner. When your pancake begins to form bubbles, add the filling. Starting at the center of the pancake, squeeze the filling on top of the pancake batter in a swirl.
  5. Cook the Pancake Through: Cook the pancake 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bubbles begin popping on top of the pancake and it’s golden brown on the bottom. Slide a thin spatula underneath the pancake and gently flip it over. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until the other side is golden as well.
  6. Prepare the Cream Cheese Glaze: While the pancakes are cooking, prepare the glaze. In a small pan, heat the butter over low heat until melted. Turn off the heat and whisk in the cream cheese until it is almost smooth. Sift the powdered sugar into the pan, stir and add in vanilla extract.
