  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Stir milk and vinegar together in a bowl; set aside until milk "sours", about 5 minutes.
  2. Mix flour, white sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl. Whisk egg, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract into milk mixture. Slowly pour milk mixture into flour mixture while whisking constantly until batter is just moistened and evenly mixed. Lumps are fine.
  3. Combine brown sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Place a 1-quart resealable bag into a glass or cup. Pour cinnamon mixture into the bag; refrigerate until filling is as thick as toothpaste, about 10 minutes.
  4. Mix 1/4 cup softened butter and cream cheese together in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave for 40 seconds. Stir mixture with a whisk or fork until smooth. Continue heating in microwave and stirring until mixture is completely melted. Stir confectioners' sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract into cream cheese mixture until icing is smooth.
  5. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour about 2/3 cup batter into the center of griddle. Cook pancake until bubbles start to appear, 2 to 3 minutes. Cut 1 corner off the center of the bag with filling. Swirl filling over pancake, leaving enough space around edges that filling doesn't touch the griddle.
  6. Flip pancake and cook until other side is lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Drizzle icing over pancake. Repeat with remaining ingredients, spraying the griddle with cooking spray between each pancake.


  • Cook's Note:
  • It is very important to wipe the pan/griddle with a damp clean cloth in between each pancake to remove excess cinnamon mixture. Doing this will prevent the residual mixture from scorching and ruining the next batch of pancakes.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

A bit time consuming but they were worth it. My kids loved these (teenagers). They really did taste like cinnamon rolls. However, there was enough glaze and swirl topping for a double recipe of ...

My rating reflects the little girls' declaration that these get 100 stars! I would have given it less, but then they were the target audience after all. The directions to making the pancakes w...

Great pancake recipe and cinnamon filling, very easy and tastes amazing

Tasty! I cheated and didn't make the pancakes from scratch, I'm sure it would have been even better if I did. But when making them for myself (and let's be honest, the dog may have helped a litt...

We thought this was amazing! Rather than making the cream cheese frosting, however, I just used some pumpkin goat cheese as a topping because my husband doesn't like cream cheese frosting. Other...

These were pretty tasty but have room for improvement. I would start with making steps 3 and 4 first. Having the dough sit while I prepared the other ingredients seemed like an inefficient use o...

Great recipe, followed other recommendations to cut the icing on half and it worked well. Thanks for sharing

I used my own pancake recipe, which is a basic old-fashioned but I added 2 scoops of Salted Caramel protein. Kept the cinnamon filling and icing the same, although we had some left over. Made th...

The wife and kids loved this! I recommend cutting the icing recipe in half, as it was far too much. Also, when you cut the hole for the cinnamon sugar mix, make it fairly small.
