Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

It's official. These pancakes are now our family's favorite pancake recipe.
They are a quadruple threat: They have amazing taste, terrific texture, are easy to make, and turn out beautifully. They also happen to taste like a decadent morning treat, but without any of the work usually involved. The pancakes were ready to eat in less than 30 minutes.
And the icing... How often do you get to eat pancakes with icing? Half of us enjoyed the icing, the other half thought maple syrup tasted the best. I would recommend trying both and deciding. The icing definitely thickened up a bit as the butter in it cooled, which I actually preferred, so next time I'll make the icing as I mix up the batter for the pancakes.

It is an amazingly delicious splurge, and one that you should not put off any longer. I promise you'll love it, and I'm a woman of my word. Now what are you waiting for? The print-friendly button is below. ☺

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes
Yield: 12 3-inch pancakes
  • 1½ c. flour
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla
Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Add the wet ingredients and whisk together until well combined.

Preheat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Cook until brown on both sides. Serve with maple syrup or icing.

  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
Whisk the ingredients together until smooth and a pouring consistency. Icing will continue to thicken as it sits. If the icing is too thick, add more milk. If it's too thin, add more sugar.
