Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes - tender pumpkin pancakes with a buttery, cinnamon swirl!

 

This recipe for Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes has quickly become a family favorite. They are the perfect breakfast for fall. Tender pumpkin pancakes with a buttery, cinnamon swirl, topped with a decadent cream cheese glaze. I know your family will love these as much as mine does.

Let me show you how easy they are to make:

Step 1: Preheat electric nonstick griddle to about 325 degrees.

Step 2: Prepare cream cheese glaze, and set aside so it is ready to be poured on the piping hot pancakes.

Step 3: Prepare the cinnamon swirl mixture by stirring together softened butter, dark brown sugar, and cinnamon. Transfer the mixture to a disposable piping bag or a plastic baggie, and snip off the end.

Step 3: Prepare the pumpkin pancake batter and pour it onto the hot griddle using a 1/4 cup measuring cup.

Step 4: Let the pancakes cook for about one minute; they will start to set up just slightly. Then use the piping bag to gently swirl the cinnamon mixture into the pancakes. Important note: You want to use the tip of the bag to push slightly into the batter so the cinnamon mixture is swirled into the batter, not just on top of the pancake. Keep the swirl close to the center of the batter so the mixture doesn’t melt off the side of the pancakes.

Step 5: After about eight minutes, or when the edges start to look done, use a wide spatula sprayed with nonstick cooking spray to flip the pancakes. They will take on this gorgeous golden color.

Step 6: Cook for about five more minutes, and then serve to your lucky family. Between batches, remove any butter and sugar left behind by carefully cleaning the hot griddle with damp paper towels.

  8. Oh, my ever-loving stars! Those look soooo amazing! I love making cinnamon rolls, but pancakes are our fav… both together and I might die and go to pancake heaven!!!

    We are gluten free, so I’m wondering if this will work with almond flour… I think I’ll try it on Saturday… nothing to do this weekend, so I think it’s time to celebrate that alone!

  9. omg if these taste even half as good as they look… a part of me really wants to try them, but the wise part of my brain is telling me that i may not want to sleep in the gym this winter.
