I'm being serious. These pancakes quite literally changed my life.
I fell in love with the first bite and haven't recovered yet.
I ate them 3 weeks ago.
Just looking at the pictures is causing me to salivate and swoon.
These pancakes are in no way healthy, or low calorie. Which is why they taste so good!
I cannot remember a food that tasted just as decadent, amazing, delicious, and satisfying as these pancakes. The last bite was every bit as good as the first, except you cried a little because you knew it was over.
I am not exaggerating.
Try them for yourself.
These will be our new Christmas morning tradition.
They are just what I've been waiting for. The perfect blend of flavors and textures.
They are worth every calorie.
They are also worth every dirty dish and extra step it takes to make them.
Be prepared to have your taste buds changed forever.
Mmmm - mmmm - mmmmm.
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes:
* I would cut this recipe in half if you are only making them for your family.
This recipe makes an extra large batch.
*for the 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
*for the Cinnamon Filling
1 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp ground cinnamon
*for the Cream Cheese Glaze
1/2 cup butter
4 oz. cream cheese
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
To make the Cinnamon Filling:
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.
To make the Pancakes:
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.
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.
To make the Cream Cheese Glaze:
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.
Place pancake on plate, then cover with cream cheese glaze.
Be prepared to be amazed.
Oh, oh, oh so good!
Oh, and just to brag on him a little bit, yes Hunky Hubby did make these. He is the breakfast chef after all!
I know, I'm spoiled.
Please don't hate me.
