Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes

My husband is a HUGE breakfast fan.Yesterday, being a weekend…my hubby wanted to make breakfast. I had seen this recipe and thought, it looks yummy, I should show my hubby. Sure enough, he was anxious to try it. It was quite delicious, the only change I would make was to use some sort of squirt bottle to swirl the cinnamon so it gets more into the batter, or take a knife and mix it through the batter while cooking. Up to you how you prefer to get it in there, : )



1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 tbsp butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp honey

Cinnamon Swirl:

2 tbsp melted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp flour


Mix all the ingredients together to make the pancake batter. Set aside and heat griddle or pan. Lightly grease it.
Make the cinnamon swirl mixture and use either a squirt bottle (ketchup type bottle), or bag with corner snipped off.
Spread batter into small circles on heated pan/griddle. Immediately add the cinnamon swirls. Cook the pancakes until small bubbles develop on top of pancake. Flip over using a spatula and cook for an additional 30 seconds.
Serve warm.
*We just put a thin layer of butter on them to keep them moist, syrup may take away from the cinnamon swirl flavor.
**If cinnamon mixture is too thick to drizzle, add milk to thin it out allowing it to pour on better!

Here are the pancakes right before flipping them over, YUM!

I made this exact recipe and they turned out terrible. The pancakes were thin like crepes, making them hard to flip and the cinnamon swirl tasted good but came of easily and ended up hard. I recommend using a pre-made pancake mix like Bisquick for the pancakes instead.

Oh we are so sorry it didnt turn out good. I wonder what happened? : (

Bisquick definitely would work if you have it, so hopefully next time you make it, you will fall in love with the recipe as we have!!

Again, sorry it didnt turn out yummy, thats always a bummer!
