Recipe for Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Cinnamon Roll Pancake

  • 2 cups Krusteaz Pancake Mix – we love the protein mix
  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • cinnamon swirl mixture- recipe below
  • cream cheese icing – recipe below

Cinnamon Swirl Mixture

First, mix the ingredients together in a squeeze bottle. Without lid, heat bottle in microwave for 30 seconds to ensure butter is melted. Then, replace lid and shake thoroughly.

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbs brown sugar
  • 3 tbs softened butter

Cream Cheese Icing

First, mix the ingredients together in a small bowl using a silicon spatula. Next, stir until smooth.

  • 1 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powder sugar
  • 2 tbs softened butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  1. First, heat pancake griddle to 375°F or medium heat. Lightly, grease griddle.
  2. Second, whisk pancake mix and water together according to directions on the box. Let batter stand 2 minutes while making cinnamon swirl mixture.
  3. Third, pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto the griddle. After 30-60 seconds, add the cinnamon swirl mixture in a swirl pattern in the center of each pancake using a squeeze bottle.
  4. Then, cook another 30 seconds on that side. Then, flip when the tops bubble and bottom is golden brown, approximately 1-1/2 minutes per side. Remove pancakes from griddle.
  5. Next, with a silicon spatula, smear cream cheese icing generously on top of a small stack of pancakes. Finally, add fresh fruit, if desired, and enjoy!
