Cream Cheese Frosting


Cinnamon Swirl

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon


Cream Cheese Glaze:

  • Using a small saucepan melt the butter over low heat.
  • Remove from the heat and mix in the cream cheese. Whisk until almost smooth.
  • Mix in the powdered sugar and then add the vanilla. Stir and set aside.

Pancake Batter:

  • In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, add the wet ingredients: buttermilk, milk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla. Beat until well combined.
  • Pour the Milk mixture into the four mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. (Lumps are ok to have.) Let rest for 10 minutes.

Cinnamon Swirl Mixture:

  • While the batter is resting make the swirl mixture. In a separate bowl add butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix.
  • Transfer the mixture to a quart size zip lock bag. Cut one corner off.

Cooking the Pancakes:

  • Scoop the batter into a 4 inch pancake.
  • When the batter starts to form bubbles use the Cinnamon Mixture to pipe a swirl on top of the pancake. Start from the center and make a swirl going outward.
  • Cook until the bubbles begin to pop, about 2-3 more minutes.
  • Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes -until the underside of the pancake is a golden brown.
  • Wipe the pan, if needed, and repeat for each pancake.
  • Top the pancakes with the cream cheese glaze.
  • Note: Use an electric griddle to make several pancakes at a time
