Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

4 cups all-purpose flour
8 tsps baking powder
2 tsp. salt
4 cups milk
4 tbsps vegetable oil
4 large eggs, lightly beaten

Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another bowl. Stir them together until everything is moistened leaving a few lumps.


1 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp ground cinnamon

Mix the three ingredients together. Place in a disposable piping bag and snip the end off or put in a Ziploc bag and snip the corner off.

1/2 cup butter
4 oz. cream cheese
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

In a microwave safe bowl melt the butter and cream cheese and then stir together. Whisk in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Add a little milk if needed to make it a glaze consistency. 

To make the Pancakes:
Heat your griddle to exactly 325 degrees. You don't want these too cook too quickly, and you won't want your cinnamon to burn. 

Make desired size pancake on greased griddle and then using the piping bag and starting at the center of the pancake, create a cinnamon swirl. Wait until the pancake has lots of bubble before you try to turn it. You will find that when you turn it the cinnamon swirl will melt. The cinnamon will melt out and create the craters which the cream cheese glaze will fill.
Place pancake on plate, then cover with cream cheese glaze.

From a friend's facebook page.  First person to make these and then write a review gets 10 points!

10  points for me!  I (Kathleen) made them this morning for breakfast.  Yep, they are very good.  Here is my input:

They are very sweet.  More like a dessert.

I made 1/2 the recipe for the cinnamon filling and I had plenty.
My Smart and Final ziploc bag tore (twice) as I was piping them onto the pancakes, so I switched over to a regular sandwich baggie which worked fine to pipe on the cinnamon filling.  

It took a couple of cooked batches to figure out the heating and turning  as you cook the pancakes.  I would pratice making this recipe a couple of times before serving them for guests.  

I did a regular frosting glaze because I didn't have any cream cheese on hand.  My glaze recipe is:   Melt 1/4 cup butter.  Add 2 Tablespoons milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Add enough powdered sugar to make the consistency you want for your frosting glaze.  

In the pancake section:
   8 teaspoons = 2 2/3 Tablespoons
   I used 1 teaspoons of salt instead of 2 teaspoons
