Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

My kids wanted breakfast for dinner so we decided to try these pancakes I heard about.. I'm not sure you could actually call it dinner, but they were fabulous!  Enjoy!

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

The easiest thing to do is make your favorite pancake mix and add the cinnamon swirl while cooking.. If you don't use mixes, here is a pancake recipe:

1 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 C milk
1 T oil
1 egg

Mix all ingredients together and set aside..

Cinnamon swirl:
1/2 C melted butter
3/4 C brown sugar
1 T cinnamon

Mix together and put into ziploc baggie.

Cream Cheese Glaze:
4 T butter
2 oz cream cheese
3/4 C powdered sugar
1/2 t vanilla

Melt butter and cream cheese.  Whisk in sugar and vanilla until smooth.

Heat griddle over medium-low heat.  Spray with cooking spray.  I used a 1/2 cup measuring cup and poured batter onto hot griddle.  Snip end of ziploc baggie (with cinnamon swirl mix) and swirl around onto pancake.  (keep a bowl close to put baggie in or you will have a huge mess!)  When pancake bubbles, carefully flip - get the largest spatula out that you own! Cook 1-2  more minutes and remove from heat. 
 Serve with warm cream cheese glaze! 

(You definitely won't need butter or syrup on these!
 Enjoy then go run a few miles to work it off!! :)
