This Sunday I decided to make Cinnamon Roll Pancakes for breakfast. I had seen them come up a bunch of times while browsing Pinterest and I realized that it was necessary that I attempt to make them. Thanks to RecipeGirl for the recipe and the tips (check out her Gingerbread Cinnamon Roll Pancakes entry too for helpful tips on making the cinnamon roll filling).
The Cream Cheese Glaze is beyond necessary as well. Let’s be honest… you could just use your go-to pancake syrup but then it wouldn’t make these “Cinnamon Roll” pancakes. So please take the teeny amount of extra time and make the Cream Cheese Glaze. You will not regret it.
I love how the cinnamon roll filling sort of becomes crunchy as it caramelizes on the skillet. It adds to the pancake eating experience. You’re getting a little bit of crunchiness, sweetness, savoryness (from the Cream Cheese Glaze) and the moistness from the delicious pancake.
I think you could definitely save yourself some time by just buying the pancake mix for the pancake batter but honestly… it didn’t take me that much more time to make the pancake batter from scratch.
Bacon and Champagne with Strawberries is also a good addition to this breakfast. Bacon because well… it’s bacon and Champagne because well… it’s champagne. If I have to give you a reason to add those two items to complete this delicious meal then we have a problem.
Take some time out of your weekend morning and make this yummy breakfast. It will really help you start your day off on the right foot. Now, it’s time for me to take a nice food coma. Have a great Sunday. Cheers!
