::sweet sunday:: Cinnamabun Pancakes

I woke up with a fresh outlook on Sunday.  This was the first Sunday I had woken up with this particular attitude in a long time.  Usually Sundays make me a bit sad.  It is the end of my weekend.  The last moments to do anything I wanted to do before the hectocity of the week began.  This past Sunday was different.  We had the craziest day possible on Saturday and we both slept in Sunday.

Usually I am the late sleeper, but I managed to get up before PTB this time.  I had enough time to look though my hundreds of “recipes to try”, to find the perfect substitute for the Sunday brunch we clearly were not going out for.  When I saw the Cinnamon Bun Pancakes on Baked Bree, I was sold.  I found her food blog because she is a wedding photographer as well, so I think she is cool already since we share both interests.  Clearly if this is the case, the food must be good as well.

This was my first *from scratch* pancake experience, but none-the-less, I had to tweak it.  They turned out amazing.  And I just ate the last of them this morning.  *note to self: reheat in the toaster oven on 250F for like 5-10 minutes.  Perfection*

I used the Griddler for these, setting the griddle to just over 325F.  Since it is a perfectly non-stick surface, I didn’t have to use any added grease for cooking.

What You Need
Bowl One

1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
3 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Bowl Two
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup 2% milk
1/2 stick melted butter
2 Tbsp REAL maple syrup
2 Tbsp vanilla extract

Whisk together each bowl of ingredients separately, then combine.  Using a 1/4 cup measure, scoop onto griddle, and cook on both sides.  To make these perfectly cinnamabunny, top with a butter glaze.

Buttah Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp melted butter

Whisk together, adjusting milk or sugar amounts to thicken or thin out.  Drizzle over pancakes.  Enjoy the greatest pancakes you have ever had. What mom wouldn’t want such decadent pancakes for Mother’s Day brunch?  

Yields: 16 – 4″ Pancakes
