Cinnamon Bun Pancakes with Maple Butter Icing (Syrup)

Once upon a time there was a cinnamon roll who fell in love with a pancake.  Everyone said it couldn't work, that it would never last....yet it did.  Oh yes, they did "it" (((giggle, giggle))) and this is the result.  All the taste of cinnamon rolls with the ease and convenience of a pancake.  A marriage made in heaven I say!
These seriously have to be some of the BEST pancakes I have had in my entire life.  Give them a try, you will NOT be disappointed!

  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 TBSP cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 TBSP light corn syrup
  • ¼ cups butter, melted

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 syurp, 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. Once bubbles are set in the middle, flip over to brown on both sides.  Top with Maple Butter Icing Syrup (recipe below) OR Liquid Gold Syrup.  ENJOY!

  1. Oh lawd have mercy on me. These looks good girl. I love doing breakfast for dinner. This is obviously going on the menu!!

  4. Haha! This post made me literally laugh out loud to the point of snorting...! These look fantastic! Pancakes are always a fav. in my house!

  5. The pancakes look excellent - definitely a "must try." While I know the goal was to make syrup that resembles cinnamon bun icing, I will likely stick to a drizzle of maple. PS I LOVE that you specify "real" maple syrup and not Mrs. Butterworths...LOL. Looks delish!
