Cinnamon Bun Pancakes with Icing

Every once in a while if we have a slow Sunday morning or a rare Saturday with a little time to spare we will whip up a batch of these fun pancakes.   Matti didn't include her recipe for the maple syrup icing and since I am a little weird about maple syrup and which foods they belong with I stick with this easy vanilla icing.  Some of my kids prefer to forgo the icing and just eat them with maple syrup.

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 sweets...so 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 effort...so 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.

Enjoy!

Matti

Vanilla Glaze

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