Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Recipe From: How Does She

This recipe makes about 10-12 medium sized pancakes

The players:
Griddle or Frying Pan – preheat to medium/low heat and grease with butter, margarine, or that nasty spray (which I used, by the way). Butter = the best.

Dry (though not completely humorless) ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp Cinnamon (or more if you’re a cinnamon freak, like me)

In a medium bowl, combine these dry ingredients together. I like using a whisk.

When these dry ingredients are mixed nicely, then you can mix together these remaining ingredients in a SEPARATE bowl. We don’t introduce these two until a little later. Suspense is everything.

Wet ingredients:
2 eggs (whole) beaten
1 Cup of milk (or a little more if your batter isn’t runny enough for you)
2 Tbsp Corn Syrup (I only had regular table syrup on hand – worked fine)
1/4 Cup butter or margarine, melted
1 Tbsp vanilla

Beat together these wet ingredients, then add them to the dry. Mix well.

The How-To:

Drop the batter by about 1/3 cup fulls onto the pre-heated/greased griddle and cook until the tiny bubbles JUST start appearing on top, then flip over. These only take a couple of minutes to cook.

Serve warm with syrup – and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll serve it up with this delicious Maple Icing Syrup that you are about to make RIGHT NOW!

Maple Icing Syrup

1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cups butter – melted
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1/4 cup milk (more if you want it a little runnier)

Combine all of these ingredients and pour over your cinnamon bun pancakes.
