Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

We were too busy scarfing these down for photographs, so I've used some from onesavorylife.com
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

These pancakes were SO good that we've decided to have them Christmas morning! I used my regular buttermilk pancake batter, recipe HERE, then did the steps listed below.

Cinnamon Swirl Mixture

2 t cinnamon, 5 T melted butter, 1 c brown sugar

Mix together. Can thin with a little milk. if needed. Put in a squeeze bottle, pastry bag or you can even use a Ziploc and cut the tip off of a corner. You just want to be able to squeeze the cinnamon mixture out onto the pancake batter.

Frosting

2 T soft butter, 2 oz soft cream cheese, 1/2 t vanilla, 2/3 c powdered sugar and a little milk to thin frosting to the right consistency. Mix all together. I made it thick but still able to drizzle with a spoon.

Make pancake batter, cinnamon swirl mixture and frosting all before starting. Pour batter on griddle as with any pancakes and immediately swirl lines of the cinnamon mixture. Continue making pancakes as you normally would. After they come off the griddle, drizzle with cream cheese frosting. I served these with sausage and red seedless grapes. Yum!
