Friends, I need to introduce you to the most decadent, Moist and Fluffy Cinnamon Roll Pancakes.
My husband and I are obsessed with the Food Network and Cooking Channel. We watch it, I can honestly say, every day. My husband loves to cook and I love to bake. You can get a lot of good information, recipes and ideas from watching any of the shows. Right now, our favorite show is Food Paradise. Each show has a different theme, for instance, crunchy goodies, all about ice cream, deep fried, etc.
Cinnamon rolls are my weakness, but cinnamon roll pancakes? How can you resist?
The other night I was watching Food Paradise and these cinnamon roll pancakes came on. It was from a diner, called Eggy’s in Minneapolis. Now, cinnamon rolls are my weakness and when you turn them into a pancake, what is more indulgent than that? The show gave me a brief description of the ingredients and process. I knew I had to recreate these.
Oh man. Delicious.
Oh man. Delicious. Cinnamon sugar and pecans baked into the pancake. These moist and fluffy pancakes are filled with a cinnamon flavored mascarpone cheese. It gets better. These delightfully flavored discs are sliced up to look like cinnamon rolls. Finally, topped with powdered sugar, syrup and pecans. Is your mouth watering yet?
This is one of those times where you want (and will) lick the plate. Then ask for seconds. No sharing allowed when these fluffy, decadent cinnamon roll pancakes hit the plate. Sorry Addison, these are for mommy.
