Cinnamon roll pancakes

Cinammon roll pancakes. Man, life is good. I had these recently at a Jimmy's Egg in Joplin, MO, and I will never forget it. That's how good they were. Here's a recipe where you can make your family oh-so-happy by trying these.


  • Cinnamon Filling:
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • Cream Cheese Glaze:
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2-ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Use boxed pancake mix and make a recipe of pancakes (makes about 12 pancakes.) Prepare the pancake mix according to the instructions and when they are on the griddle, swirl the cinnamon filling in a swirly pattern. Then cook them like you would. Use the cream cheese glaze as you would syrup.
