What You Need for the Pancakes

1 cup flour

1 cup milk

1 large egg, beaten

1 tbsp vegetable oil

2 tsp baking powder

Salt to taste

What You Need for the Filling

Half stick butter

¼ cup brown sugar and an additional 2 tbsp. brown sugar

2 tbsp. Ground cinnamon

What You Need for the Glaze

Half stick butter

2 oz cream cheese

¾ powder sugar

½ tsp vanilla

How to Prep Recipe

Get three bowls and start your work. Start with your cinnamon recipe. Just melt your butter and mix it with the rest of your ingredients and set it aside. Next, work on the glaze. You’ll want to cook the butter on low in a small sauce pan just until it melts then you’ll mix in the cream cheese until everything is smooth and silky. From there, add your powdered sugar and vanilla, mix well and set to the side.

For the pancakes, mix everything together and prep your cooking surface. You’ll want to spray your pan or griddle with nonstick cooking spray, and you’ll want to use a medium heat. Using an ice cream scoop, put your batter on the griddle in small circles to make your pancakes. Sprinkle some cinnamon mixture onto the batter using a spoon and create a cinnamon roll-like circle. Let it cook the same way you would any pancake, and then flip. When it’s done, pile it on a plate with more and add some glaze to the top and enjoy.
