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!
Oh….my….gosh! These are so unbelievably good! They taste just like a grilled cinnamon roll! I used my great-grandmother’s pancake recipe for the batter and they turned out fantastic!
I like to make pancakes on an electric griddle, like this one.. I find that I can make the more quickly this way and the heat is more even.
I’m not even going to take up time babbling on about how good these pancakes are…you MUST go make these. Right away! Even if it’s not breakfast time, have them for lunch or dinner or a snack. Just make them. You won’t be sorry! DEFINITELY A KEEPER!
