Big Red Kitchen: Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

My little Deven loves pancakes and wants me to make them all the time, but I don’t often enough. Late last night my friend had spotted this Cinnamon Bun Pancake Recipe from the blogisphere and posted it on her Facebook status suggesting for her daughter to make them. Wow, Cinnamon Bun Pancakes, that would be a winner in my house too. So I went to bed with pancakes dancing in my head. I dreamed up ways to make this pancake recipe look and taste more like a cinnamon roll.

I created a typical cinnamon roll filling and placed it in a pastry bag to be swirled over the pancakes as they cooked. After pouring 1/4 cup pancake batter in a hot skillet, I swirled the cinnamon filling mixture over top.

Of course it’s true, and I’m no heretic. However… I’m afraid I’ve found one teensy, weensy exception. Oh yeahhhhh. I just bet I’ve got your attention now. heh heh heh One of my cute little moms in my cute little class brought a couple pans of these amazing…no, no…FABULOUS cinnamon rolls–and seriously, it was all I could do not to hang on her leg as she went out the door. Before we start here, let me just make one gigantic disclaimer. This is… If you make these unbelievable little babies–and I’m thinkin’ you will–and decide to eat the entire batch all by yourself, and the kids find you later that evening sitting on the floor of the pantry with frosting on your chin in a sticky cinnamon stupor—mumbling something about a cruise to Cozumel and Johnny Depp, well now, my friends, I’m just not going to take responsibility for that.

Any more than I took when it happened… to… me. Go on–make them. I dare you. The Perfect Cinnamon Rolls. I Am Now In The Muffin Loop. I am so sick.

I Am Now In The Muffin Loop

Of myself. Do you know what I mean? I'm just fed up TO HERE with me. I feel boring, uninspired, whiny, ridiculous, apathetic, and just TOTALLY BLEH. I feel like white bread looks. Is it a stage or something? I was just going to write "I can't seem to get hooked into anything lately! " You know, I didn't have any real idea of what this ramble was going to be about but it actually came full circle for me, considering the recipe I'm going to toss out here.
