Instructions

Cream Cheese Glaze:

  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
  2. Remove from heat and blend in the cream cheese, whisking until nearly smooth.
  3. Stir in the powdered sugar, then add the vanilla extract. Mix well and set aside.

Pancake Batter:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract until well mixed.
  3. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring with a wooden spoon just until combined. Lumps in the batter are fine. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.

Cinnamon Swirl Mixture:

  1. While the batter rests, prepare the swirl mixture. In a bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  2. Transfer this mixture to a quart-sized ziplock bag and snip off one corner to create a small opening.

Cooking the Pancakes:

  1. Pour batter onto a hot griddle to form 4-inch pancakes.
  2. Once bubbles form on the surface of the pancake, use the cinnamon mixture to pipe a swirl starting from the center and moving outward.
  3. Cook until bubbles pop, about 2-3 minutes, then flip. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the underside is golden brown.
  4. Clean the griddle as needed and repeat with the remaining batter.
  5. Serve the pancakes topped with the cream cheese glaze.

Cinnamon roll pancake FAQS

How long does cinnamon roll dough last?

Cinnamon roll dough, when stored properly, can last in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. It’s important to keep it tightly covered or wrapped in plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out. If you need to store it for a longer period, you can freeze the dough. In the freezer, it can last for about a month. Just make sure to thaw it overnight in the refrigerator before using.

How do you know when cinnamon roll dough is done?

To determine if cinnamon roll dough is done, you should look for it to double in size, which is a sign that the yeast has successfully activated and the dough has risen. This usually takes about 1 to 1.5 hours in a warm environment. The dough should be soft and slightly sticky to the touch. If you gently press your finger into the dough, the indentation should slowly spring back.

How do you preserve cinnamon roll dough?

To preserve cinnamon roll dough, you can either refrigerate or freeze it. For refrigeration, place the dough in a large bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and store it in the fridge. This slows down the yeast activity but doesn’t stop it, so the dough will continue to rise, albeit more slowly. For freezing, wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap and then place it in a freezer bag. When you’re ready to use it, thaw the dough in the refrigerator overnight and then allow it to come to room temperature and complete its rise before shaping and baking.

Why won’t my pancakes flip?

ancakes might not flip properly for a few reasons:
Undercooked Batter: If you try to flip them too early, before the underside is cooked enough, they can fall apart. Wait until you see bubbles forming on the surface and the edges start to look set.
Overcrowded Pan: If the pancakes are too close together, you might not have enough room to get the spatula under them properly.
Inconsistent Heat: If the pan is not heated evenly, some parts of the pancake might cook faster than others, making it difficult to flip.
Sticky Pan: A pan that isn’t properly greased can cause the pancakes to stick, making flipping difficult. Ensure your pan is well-greased and at the right temperature before pouring in the batter.
