Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Are you a cinnamon lover? You are going to love me. LOVE me, I tell ya! Why? Because I’m going to be sharing something scrumptious, something EASY to make, something you and your kids will LOVE, and something that will add about ten pounds to your  hips. Uh… forget that last part…Trust me, these are SO good. These amazing pancakes have ALL of the flavor and  NONE of the waiting/hard work/waiting of cinnamon buns. Okay, enough teasing..let’s get these babies made! Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

The players:

Griddle or Frying Pan – preheat to medium/low heat and grease with butter, margarine, or that nasty spray (which I used, by the way). Butter = the best.

Dry (though not completely humorless) ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 Tbsp white sugar

1/2 tsp salt

4 tsp baking powder

1 Tbsp Cinnamon (or more if you’re a cinnamon freak, like me)

In a medium bowl, combine these dry ingredients together. I like using a whisk. It makes me feel very “Martha Stewart”. Cinnamon Bun Pancakes When these dry ingredients are mixed nicely, then you can mix together these remaining ingredients in a SEPARATE bowl. We don’t introduce these two until a little later. Suspense is everything.

Wet ingredients:

2 eggs (whole) beaten – feel free to take out your frustration on these innocent little eggies

1 Cup of milk (or a little more if your batter isn’t runny enough for you)

2 Tbsp Corn Syrup (I only had regular table syrup on hand – worked fine)

1/4 Cup butter or margarine, melted

1 Tbsp vanilla

Beat together these wet ingredients, then add them to the dry. Mix well. They need to not just get to know each other, but fall in love, get married, get thrown from the frying pan into the fire. Okay, just onto the frying pan.

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

The How-To:

Drop the batter by about 1/3 cup fulls onto the pre-heated/greased griddle and cook until the tiny bubbles JUST start appearing on top, then flip over. These only take a couple of minutes to cook.

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Serve warm with syrup – and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll serve it up with this delicious Maple Icing Syrup that you are about to make RIGHT NOW!

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Maple Icing Syrup

1 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cups butter – melted

1 Tbsp Maple Syrup

1/4 cup milk (more if you want it a little runnier)

Combine all of these ingredients and pour over your cinnamon bun pancakes. Then, get ready for a flavor explosion, and one VERY happy tummy! Oooooh, ya….. I can feel the autumn maple-y deliciousness now…can you?

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

This recipe makes about 10-12 medium sized pancakes. In other words…double the recipe! It tastes soooo good even after sitting in the fridge for a couple of hours. I know this from experience :) The syrup makes plenty for a double batch. Don’t feel like making the maple icing syrup? No problem…just use your favorite. Hint: Try making your favorite cream cheese icing, only add enough milk to make it pourable. YUMMO!

    These are incredible! There isn't a crumb left and I've been asked to make them again tomorrow morning. I too didn't have any corn syrup on hand so I used maple syrup instead. The Maple Syrup Icing is a must.

    We had these for breakfast this morning - what a perfect fall breakfast! The family LOVED them, although with only 3 of us and the little one being 2 we probably could have gotten by with 1/2 batch. The syrup is a MUST to go with them. When I told my husband what I was making he said, "I think I'll have cereal." He's not a big cinnamon fan. 1/2 way through cooking them he changed his mind and then loved them!

    Love the recipe, I wonder if anyone has tried with buttermilk instead of the milk? We made buttermilk ones with a dusting of cinnamon,in my Foods classes I teach at our local high school, and they were cakey good, just wondering...I'll probably try with my variation this weekend.

    I just made these this morning and when I combined the wet ingredients together the mixture formed into hard little chunks! It is difficult to explain...it just wasnt't smooth...it was like it solidified into hard little pieces throughout the mixture. I was very frustrated- as I had followed the directions EXACTLY. I used melted butter and corn syrup. I have no idea what went wrong. Any ideas?

    I made these tonight and they are EVIL! I was licking the "syrup" off the plate. Mid-dinner my 5-year-old son jumped out of his chair, ran over to me, threw his arms around me and said, "This is the best dinner ever! Thanks, Mom!" These are definitely going on my Christmas brunch menu that I give for the ladies I VT!

    Tam's little intro info was fun too.

    I look forward to getting to know you better over the next year. I know Jen from Tatertots and Jello is friends with you. She is a sweetheart.

    SWEET JESUS.

    Actually, it's not terribly different from my own take on cinnamon pancakes now that I think about it. I've only experimented with using a fairly small amount of the powdered godliness to give the pancakes just a hint of the cinnamon. Funnily enough they sometimes end up tasting like French toast...

    Maybe the next time I make pancakes I'll remember to add more cinnamon to the mix and see where it gets me. I also highly recommend that anyone reading this tries adding just a tiny amount of vanilla extract (and I mean minuscule, that stuff is strong) to the batter after you've combined the dry and wet ingredients. Heaven on a plate.
