Pinned It / Tried It - Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Cinnamon Roll Sour Cream Pancakes Recipe:

Cinnamon Sugar Filling

4 tablespoons of melted butter
1/4 cup of firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in the microwave and add to mixing bowl. Then add 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar (I used golden brown sugar), 2 tablespoons of white sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and stir together.

Fold a quart size plastic baggie over a small cup, that way you can easily pour the cinnamon sugar mixture into the baggie. Close the baggie well and set aside to cool. To speed up the process a little I put my bag of cinnamon sugar goodness into the fridge

 Sour Cream Pancakes

1 cup of all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt
1 cup of sour cream
1/4 cup of milk
4 tablespoons of melted butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
I made traditional Bisquick pancakes

Let the pancakes set up on the griddle for about 2 minutes, then it is time to add the cinnamon sugar swirl. Snip just a small corner of your cinnamon sugar baggie, push the tip of your baggie into the batter, and carefully swirl the mixture into the pancake batter. Don’t just swirl the mixture on top of the pancake, it needs to be in the batter to make the signature cinnamon roll look. (I don't think I added the cinnamon sugar soon enough and didn't get it into the pancake enough). Try not to get too close to the edge of the pancakes with the swirl, or the cinnamon sugar mixture will run off.

Once the pancakes are cooked, about 7 minutes on the first side, and 5 on the second side, remove them with a large spatula sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Turn them onto the plate swirl side up. Work quickly when removing the pancakes, once the cinnamon sugar mixture cools on your spatula, the pancakes will start to stick.

These pancakes did make a mess of my griddle, but I have a clean up trick that makes cleaning up a snap. While your griddle is still hot take a wet paper towel and using your spatula wipe down the griddle. The steam from the wet paper towel loosens up all the mess and wipes it away.

These pancakes were very good, but I was expecting more of the gritty traditional cinnamon roll filling. I will definitely make these again in the future. Follow my blog with Bloglovin
