Yeah, you read that right…cinnamon swirl pancakes! I can’t even begin to tell you how I stumbled upon this little gem. One night I was wondering around blogosphere. Just bouncing from here to there, looking for things that caught my eye. And then, I found it. Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes. My mouth started watering almost instantly! I found the recipe on Frugal Antics of a Harried Housewife. OK, I can’t possibly wait any more…here’s the recipe:
Recipe from Frugal Antics of a Harried Housewife
Printed from It’s a Keeper
Batter for one batch of pancakes (from your favorite recipe or mix)
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon
In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon until smooth. Microwave on high for 10 second increments until it is soft and can be squeezed through a pastry bag. Transfer mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a medium tip. Or, you can use a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.
Pour pancake batter onto hot griddle. Pipe cinnamon mixture onto batter in a swirl shape. When pancakes are lightly browned, flip and cook until done.
Cream Cheese Icing
2 cups powdered sugar
2 ounces cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
4 Tbsp milk
Using the hand mixer, mix until smooth and pour the icing into another pastry bag or Ziploc bag. Squeeze it over the cooked pancakes in a criss-cross design.

Just make them. You won’t be sorry! DEFINITELY A KEEPER!
