My husband comes home for breakfast every morning so I’ve been making a real effort to have a hot breakfast ready for him. But that means coming up with something new everyday because the man just can’t handle Bisquick waffles everyday. He was so excited to see these pancakes and was even more excited when he tried them. The cinnamon sugar mixture becomes almost crunchy when it hits the pan and added something really fun to the pancake.

I know they don’t look simple but trust me, they are! You just make your batter as usual and after you put some in your pan, you draw a little swirl with the cinnamon sugar mix over top, then finish cooking as normal. I used a squirt bottle (that you can get really cheap just about anywhere) but a pastry bag would work as well.

I’ve made these twice within the past week. That should tell you how good they are.

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
  • 1 batch of your favorite pancake batter ready to be cooked
  • 1 stick of butter softened almost to the point of being melted
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  1. Mix butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon together, heating it up in the microwave to get it pourable consistency if you need to. You don’t want the butter completely melted or it will come out of your squirt bottle (or pastry bag) too quickly and you won’t get a pretty swirl.
  2. Add pancake batter to your pan as normal and quickly make a swirl of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Cook the pancake until bubbles form on top and then flip.
