Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

I cannot take credit for this recipe. It came from The Pioneer Woman's recipe blog. Ree (the Pioneer Woman) has fabulous (albeit not always low fat) recipes. Anyway, these pancakes were really good and of course the kids appreciated that they could have frosting for breakfast...

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes
  • 1-1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons White Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 2 whole Eggs Beaten
  • 1 cup + 1 T Milk (depending on how thick you like them)
  • 2 Tablespoons Corn Syrup
  • 1/4 cup Butter, Melted
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon with a whisk. Whisk well to make sure everything is combined.
In separate large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, corn syrup, butter and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium/low heat. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto griddle. Brown on both sides. Serve warm with icing drizzled over the top.

Maple Butter Icing:
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Butter, Melted
  • Dash Of Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup Milk (more If Needed)
I thought this frosting would be good with a whip cream base or with a little cream cheese too...
