Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Almost as simple as regular pancakes....these add something special to your morning. Easiest "cinnamon rolls" ever! Beautiful presentation and yum-o!

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Cinnamon Filling:
1 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon

Mix ingredients together. Place in a gallon size plastic baggie and snip the end off. (May also use a disposable piping bag.) Set aside.

4 cups flour
8 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
4 cups milk
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten

Mix dry ingredients separate from wet ingredients. Stir them together until moistened. (Will still be a little lumpy.) Heat griddle to 325 and grease. (Be exact on temperature. You don't want them to cook too quickly or the cinnamon will burn.)

Make desired size pancake on griddle and then using piping bag and starting at the center of the pancake, create a cinnamon swirl. Wait until the pancake has lots of bubbles before you turn it. When you turn it, the cinnamon swirl will melt out and create the craters which the cream cheese will fill.

1/2 cup butter, melted
4oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Melt butter and add to softened cream cheese. Mix well. Whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Add little bits of milk until glaze consistency. Drizzle over pancakes.
