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 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. The best part is, they taste even better than they look. My family went crazy for these pancakes, and I know yours will too. Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
