Cinnamon Filling
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter melted (not boiling)
  • 1/2 c + 2 tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
Cream Cheese Glaze
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 c all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 c milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
Preparing the Cinnamon Filling
  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Put this mixture into a quart-sized freezer bag.
  3. Snip the corner of your bag of cinnamon filling and squeeze the filling into the open corner.
  4. Set aside.
Preparing the Cream Cheese Glaze
  1. Melt the butter in a small pan on the stove over low heat.
  2. Remove from heat and whisk the cream cheese until smooth.
  3. Slowly add the powdered sugar and stir.
  4. Add in vanilla extract and stir once more, then set aside.
Preparing the Pancake Batter
  1. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Whisk in the milk, egg and oil, just until the batter is moistened. Do not over-mix, the batter will have small lumps.
Cooking Directions
  1. Heat your skillet and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Scoop about 3/4 c of batter onto the skillet, making a circle about 4 inches in diameter.
  3. When your pancakes start to bubble, it is time to add the cinnamon filling. Squeeze the filling out of the bag and swirl it in a circular fashion starting in the center and swirling to the edges.
  4. Cook the pancake until the bottom side is golden-brown (about 2-3 minutes) and then flip it. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes on this side, or until golden-brown.
  5. Re-warm the glaze, if need and drizzle over the pancakes before serving.
  6. Eat & enjoy!
Recipe Notes

*You may need to wipe down the skillet in-between batches to get rid of the cinnamon mixture that will stick on the skillet.
