cinnamon pancakes

I’m on a breakfast roll….

Cinnamon Pancakes
adapted from this recipe

makes 12-16 4-inch pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 3/4 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cups milk (I used almond)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp cold butter
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • maple syrup to pour ~or~ powdered sugar to dust


  1. In medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a separate medium bowl, combine the milk, eggs, honey and vanilla.
  3. Cut the cold butter into small 1/4 inch pieces and add the cinnamon. Mix it together with your fingers until well incorporated, but not over mixed.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until just combined. Lightly fold cinnamon chunks in. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Heat a skillet on the stovetop and add 1/4 cup batter. Once the pancake begins to bubble, flip and cook the other side. Repeat until all the batter is used.
  6. Pour on some maple syrup or dust with powdered sugar and dig in!

These are an excellent breakfast standard. The dreaminess comes in when you bite into one of the cinnamonny-buttery lumps:


Have a wonderful day!

as plain as it is I just can't get beyond oats in the morning. But what can I say other than I love them!

cinnamon butter bites? my goodness, these look awesome :)

I'm up for anything with bacon, too!

Oh my, your pancake photography is divine!

I usually have eggs and toast or oatmeal for breakfast, but a giant ooey-gooey cinnamon roll is a decadent treat during the holidays!

I often crave eggs for breakfast, or sugary cereal, which I avoid.

I have actually never made pancakes from scratch (always been a slave to aunt jemima). I have a feeling if I tried mine wouldn't hold a candle to yours. Absolutely lovely!

Yum! I always used to get cravings for huge larger than life cinnamon rolls slathered in icing. Now its more of a smoothie kick or some kind of oatmeal. :)

Ohmygosh – I love those little pockets of cinnamon, that looks divine!! I always get sweet cravings in the morning. Mainly for chocolate. I usually eat a small piece of chocolate first thing when I wake up in the morning ;)
