Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes


Imagine pancakes and cinnamon rolls had a baby. A very tasty baby. You'd have these little wonders:
I highly recommend them. My husband doesn't really like breakfast, but he gobbled them up this morning.

Pancakes 
(I halved the recipe and made 8 pancakes)
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
3 cups buttermilk
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1/4 cup sugar
Cinnamon Swirl
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon
Cream Cheese Icing 
2 cups powdered sugar
2 ounces cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
4 Tbsp milk

Pancakes
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a mixer. Make it as smooth as possible. Pour on a hot griddle and cook. Add cinnamon swirl (see below) before flipping.
 
 
Cinnamon Swirl
In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon until smooth.  Microwave on high for 10 second increments until it is soft and can be squeezed through a pastry bag.  Transfer mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a medium tip.  Or, you can use a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.

Pour pancake batter onto hot griddle.  Pipe cinnamon mixture onto batter in a swirl shape.

When pancakes are lightly browned, flip and cook until done.

Cream Cheese Icing 
Combine ingredients using a hand mixer, mixing until smooth. Pour the icing into another pastry bag or Ziploc bag. 
Drizzle it over the cooked pancakes.
Cinnamon swirled deliciousness!

  14. These looked so yummy, I had to try them this morning, but came across a problem...when I flipped them, the sugar mix seemed to burn very quickly. Any ideas? Thanks.

  16. If they are burning try turning the heat down. Also make sure you're using a good nonstick pan.
