I'm looking for a copycat recipe for Bob Evans Cinnamon Pancakes. I found one post that said that they are just regular pancakes with 'crushed up cinnamon sticks' sprinkled on top. This doesn't add up for me. It seems there's cinnamon in the batter too and I can't figure out what 'cinnamon sticks' they're refering to. Can anyone set me straight?

You can just add cinnamon to the recipe___Basic ingredients: 2 cups flour 2 Tbsp. sugar 1 Tbsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, to taste (I usually use 1 tsp.) 2 eggs 1/4 cup vegetable oil 2 cups milk 1/2 tsp. vanilla To mix: Sift the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon) into a medium bowl. Lightly beat the eggs and add to the bowl. Stir in the vegetable oil and the vanilla, leaving the milk for last. Slowly pour in the milk, stirring as it is added. But don't overstir! Batter should be slightly lumpy.

Thnks Jayashiangel. I made some awesome cinnamon pancakes from this site yesterday, but I'm still missing the crunchy little cinnamon bits that Bob Evans' has.

I'm not sure how to explain the whole cinnamon stick thing to you. We get both ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks in my country. I would say it is basically the same thing. If you grind up cinnamon sticks you end up with ground cinnamon. Also my mum used to add a cinnamon stick to porridge when it was boiling and it would flavour the whole thing! She would remove it after and of course discard of it. Here is a link to what cinnamon sticks look like.

I agree. Here in the US, they sell both in the spice aisle. Most recipes use ground cinnamon and it lasts a very long time. A few recipes ask you to throw in a whole piece of cinnamon, usually into some liquid to infuse flavor and then you discard the stick. Sounds like this recipe uses ground cinnamon in the batter and then small chips of the cinnamon stick are sprinkled on top for variety. Ground cinnamon will do just fine, just won't have those chips of cinnamon to bite into.

I have not tried the Bob Evans Cinnamon Pancakes, and also wasn't able to locate a recipe, but I found a mention of using cinnamon chips (found on the baking aisle) that said it was close.
