Cinnamon Pancakes with Icing - Delicious Deception
I made this early this morning and placed it on a paper plate so I could go outside. Our mornings are cool and delightful right now, and I'm not going to miss any of it.
These Cinnamon Flavored Pancakes were light, buttery tasting with just enough cinnamon to remind you of a cinnamon bun. Using an icing on top completes the delicious deception. I've got a feeling these are going to be a regular treat for us.
For the Pancakes:
1-1/2 cups Cake Flour
Pinch of Salt (Maybe 1/4 teaspoon)
1 tablespoon of Sugar
1/2 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
1 Cup of whole milk
1 Large Egg
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
2 Tablespoons of melted Butter
Stir all the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Whisk all the wet ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Now slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just to combine. *Do not over mix pancake batter or you'll get tough pancakes instead of light fluffy ones. There should be lumps in the batter!
Cook on a lightly greased frying pan or griddle, over medium-low heat, turning when bubbles are throughout, and they're golden brown on the bottom.
Plate and drizzle icing all over them. Enjoy!
1 Cup of Confectioners Sugar
2 Tablespoons softened Butter
2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla
Milk as needed to provide the right consistency, so you can drizzle it over the pancakes.
I mixed the 1st 4 ingredients in the bowl of my stand mixer using the whisk attachment. Then slowly drizzled in some milk until it was the right consistency.
