These Cinnamon Roll Pancakes are a perfect combination of two breakfast favorites. Made with a delicious cinnamon-sugar swirl and topped with a sweet glaze.
Cinnamon Rolls are my weakness. Combined with our favorite breakfast, pancakes, these are irresistible.
Want a cinnamon roll but don’t have time to make some or want to make something that’s not as “heavy” (calorie-wise)? Here is your quick fix! The kids love these, and they are easy to whip up. I serve them two each, with pecans and a glass of milk, Viola you have a complete breakfast that will get them through the day. A cup of fresh fruit also goes well if you need something more.

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter barely melted
- 6 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Cream Cheese Glaze
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 ounces cream cheese room temperature
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 large egg lightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
- In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Scoop the filling into a quart-sized ziplock and set it aside.
- In a small pan, heat the butter over low heat until melted. Turn off the heat and whisk in the cream cheese until it is almost smooth. Sift the powdered sugar into the pan, stir and add in vanilla extract. Set the pan aside while you make the pancakes.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk in the milk, egg, and oil, just until the batter is moistened.
- Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat and spray with nonstick spray. Use an ice cream scoop (or 1/3 cup measuring cup) to add the batter to the pan. Use the bottom of the scoop or cup to spread the batter into a circle (about 4-inches in diameter). Reduce the heat to medium-low.
- Snip the corner of the bag of cinnamon filling and squeeze the filling into the open corner. When your pancake begins to form bubbles, add the filling. Starting at the center of the pancake, squeeze the filling on top of the pancake batter in a swirl.
- Flip and cook until golden brown on each side and cooked through. Serve with glaze.
