Cinnamon Bun Pancakes with Maple Butter Syrup (icing)

So..I have an obsession with breakfast food. I love it all.
Especially pork products (think ham, bacon and sausage).
I'm also a sucker for breakfast pancakes, donuts, danish, cinnamon rolls...etc, are just up my alley.

When I saw this recipe, I almost fell over with excitement.
Pancakes and cinnamon rolls in one?!?!? Be still my heart.
We made them for dinner tonight (yes..the ever classic "breakfast for dinner", i.e. "i'm much to tired to cook anything of great you're getting THIS").

It was great.
My kids ate it right up...and then seconds.
Of course, how can you pass up a pancakes that tastes like a cinnamon roll...topped with maple syrup icing?
It's super easy too.


  • 1-½ cup All-purpose Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons White Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 2 whole Eggs Beaten
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Corn Syrup
  • ¼ cups Butter, Melted
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla

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. Brown on both sides.

Serve warm with icing over the top.

Vanilla Glaze

You could use any powdered sugar glaze, but I love this one.


1/3 cup butter or margarine

2 cups powdered sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

2-6b Tlbs hot water

Melt butter over low heat in saucepan; remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir in hot water, one tablespoon at a time, until smooth and the consistency of syrup.
