Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
Sweet and delicious buttermilk pancakes with a butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon swirl filling. These are great any time of the day and less time consuming than making real cinnamon rolls!

A bit time consuming but they were worth it. My kids loved these (teenagers). They really did taste like cinnamon rolls. However, there was enough glaze and swirl topping for a double recipe of the pancakes. I used 1/4 cup for each pancake (my norm) and the single recipe when made this way netted 8 pancakes. I will make these again but not as a 'regular' weekend breakfast - this is more of a 'special occasion' breakfast for us.Read More
I will say this they tasted good I did swap techniques half way through. I did 1/4c batter (store bought) to make extra pancakes. When I added the butter/sugar mix it just seemed to leak out but it also kinda made the pancake a bit soggy. It took a really long time to get it crispy but then it would start to burn on the griddle. So half way through I just cooked the pancakes as normal and then spread the sugar cinnamon like butter on the pancakes and then drizzled the powder sugar frosting (I just used milk,vanilla, and p. Sugar). Family tried it both ways and seemed to like it better the second way so save yourself some extra effort and add it at the end.Read More

My rating reflects the little girls' declaration that these get 100 stars! I would have given it less, but then they were the target audience after all. The directions to making the pancakes were easy enough to follow until I got to actually making them. The recipe says to pour about 2/3 cup of batter for each pancake. I started to do that until I realized that I would have only gotten a couple of pancakes from this and that they would have been way too big to even begin to turn! I cut them to 1/3 cup of batter, but if I were to make these again, I'd even make it 1/4 cup of batter. As it was with the 1/3 cup, I only got 5 and 1/2 pancakes---for the 8 servings I should have been able to get. I couldn't make the frosting drizzle, so I put that into a bag, too, and the results weren't very pretty. But I have to say that my eaters inhaled the results, and that's all that really matters, isn't it?! Thanks for making me look like a hero, squeeziebrb!
Tasty! I cheated and didn't make the pancakes from scratch, I'm sure it would have been even better if I did. But when making them for myself (and let's be honest, the dog may have helped a little), I couldn't bring myself to make the whole enchilada. I halved the recipe for the cinnamon mixture and the frosting. I made silver dollar sized pancakes (2Tbs batter) and had enough drizzle to make 8. My tip is to turn down your griddle a little lower than you normally would. The longer the cinnamon swirl sits on top, the less that leaks out all over the griddle when you flip.
My daughter wanted cinnamon rolls for her birthday. These are just as good as without all the work. We use a cast iron pan and instead of flipping, just stick in a 350 oven until they are done. You'll have to eyeball this. We make these so frequently, I bought some squeeze bottles for the sauces. Works great!
This was really good. I also cheated and used pancake mix. On top of that, I did something a little different. I left out the swirl of cinnamon sugar in the pancake and made it a butter spread and lots of little pancakes. I spread a little between two pancakes and then put the icing on top. Tasted great and the family raved on and on. Thanks!

I've made these twice. The first time was such a hassle. When I put the cinnamon swirl on and flipped the pancake it smoked so bad. I had to take it off. I ended up making the pancakes as normal and drizzling the cinnamon sugar mix over top to prevent burning of the sugar and sticking to the pan. They turned out awesome. The second time around I knew better. So good!!
We thought this was amazing! Rather than making the cream cheese frosting, however, I just used some pumpkin goat cheese as a topping because my husband doesn't like cream cheese frosting. Otherwise, I followed the rest of the recipe and it was delicious. For me personally, the pancakes didn't need quite so much of the sugary swirl; it makes for a VERY sweet pancake. But I will definitely make these again!
It was good, but not worth the work. Definitely tastes like cinnamon rolls mixed with pancakes. However, you might as well make cinnamon rolls from the Pillsbury tube...same basic flavor with a third of the effort.
They are good . Rather messy . Had trouble with the cinnamon filling. Swirling It on the pancakes was not easy. It seemed like it was too thick. Any suggestions on that issue? They were a bit too sweet for me. But my family liked them.. They are rather time consuming. Might have to be better organised on which part to make first. You have to have all three parts of the recipe made before you start making the pancakes , if it is not all assembled that causes a big problem. The cooks tip at the end should be included in the recipe when cooking the pancakes not at the end. Sometimes people do not read through the whole recipe to the end with the tip. Not a well organised recipe.
I used my own pancake recipe, which is a basic old-fashioned but I added 2 scoops of Salted Caramel protein. Kept the cinnamon filling and icing the same, although we had some left over. Made them for my husband's birthday and he said they were honestly the best pancakes he's ever had! They were sooo good, tasted exactly like a cinnamon roll, looked like one too. Will definitely make again.
Great pancake recipe and cinnamon filling, very easy and tastes amazing
These pancakes were amazing. I doubled the recipe and got 12 pancakes. I think next time I will double everything except the cream cheese icing. I made this for 4 teenage boys and they were gone within 2 minutes.
These were pretty tasty but have room for improvement. I would start with making steps 3 and 4 first. Having the dough sit while I prepared the other ingredients seemed like an inefficient use of time. I would also try using lemon juice to sour the cream but I did not this time. These are rather messy but the overall thought was tasty.
Well, after following the directions exactly, I have come to the conclusion that these are not really all that great! Like others have expressed, it's way too much work and time-consuming. I also put the cinnamon mixture in a squirt bottle, thinking that would make the job easier. I was wrong - my mistake! Also, I too found out that the cream cheese topping made too much for the amount of pancakes. Now, the pancakes: mine were rather flat - not "airy and fluffy" like others' were. Maybe I mixed the batter too much? Again, that would be my mistake. Finally, the cinnamon "swirl" (mine didn't "swirl" well) caramelized when cooked so it was rather hard to chew. With all this said, I'm glad that others had favorable results.
I used an electric griddle set at 325*. I used 2 tsp of cinnamon, and I cut the icing recipe in half. I also only made them a 1/4 cup of pancake batter per pancake. They were delicious!
Really good, but the recipe makes way too much icing. I will make it with less next time.
I loved these! The first time I made them I didn't do well with the cinnamon swirl but the 2nd time got it right. If you get the consistency like toothpaste as the recipe states, it works. I took other reviewers' suggestions and halved the cinnamon mixture and cream cheese topping and it was enough. I only got 4 pancakes out of it using 1/3 cup batter for each. I also did most of the prep work the night before so it didn't seem labor intensive at all.
My kids liked it but the icing was a little too sweet. Think that I will use 4 tbls of sugar instead of 5 1/2. But we loved it otherwise.
Delicious! I was afraid they might be too sweet, but they were just right. My guys LOVED them and they are cinnamon roll addicts! Definitely a make again.
I loved this recipe!I did it yesterday
We loved these pancakes. Definitely a special treat. My only suggested change would be eliminating the butter in the frosting. Tip 1, cook pancakes almost totally on first side. Once almost all bubbles start to appear then swirl in cinnamon, wait a few seconds, allowing to soak in, then flip. Cook no more than 1.5 mins, once flipped. Most cooking should've taken place before flipping. This will help keep cinnamon from melting allover pan. Scoop up pancake and serve swirl side up. Drizzle frosting over warm cakes so it melts a bit. Tip 2: Using a nonstick pan really helps in cooking & cleanup. And cook no more than 2 cakes at once. Enjoy!
They are delicious! I added a peeled and chopped Granny Smith apple to the batter and substituted maple syrup for the cream cheese sugar glaze. Took advantage of the swirl filling and simmered a sliced Granny Smith apple that I later used to decorate.
Made this for my self and my 15 yr old son, we both thought it was way too sweet. Might be good for a dessert but that's about it. I'd prefer regular cinnamon rolls or regular pancakes. Dont think I'd make em again.
Are you a fan of cinnamon rolls? Do you like pancakes? If yes, then voila!... the Cinnamon Roll Pancake!! Thanks for sharing this recipe ! It is/was, insanely delicious and decadent and with Rosemary potatoes... Oh Snap, I'm in trouble... I best be hitting the trail here in a few. If you like sweet cinnamon rolls you will love it!
Taste alone is fantastic, however I agree that the recommended 2/3 cup is way too big for flipping and would only yield about 3 pancakes. I would give it only 2 stars with regard to the actual making of them as the drizzle seeped out of every one of them even though I didn’t go close to the edge. They didn’t look anything like some of the
The filling left channels in the pancake and it spread outside of the pancake. I don’t know what I did wrong.
Such a treat! V ery sweet and yummy for a special occasion. I put the cinammon mix and icing on after flipping them, otherwise followed the recipe. However, I did use buttermilk instead of vinegar and milk. They were very fluffy!
My family loves these pancakes without the extra sugar topping. I just add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the dry ingredients.
I loved this! A little complicated recipe for a rushed morning breakfast. But turned out very well. My hubby thought it was a bit too sweet.
these cam out really good. I totally cheated. I made the cinnamon swirl, used boxed pancake mix and melted heated store bought vanilla icing. Everyone LOVED them. Even my husband who is not a pancake fan.
Horrible worst pancakes ever
So delicious!! I made some changes to make it a little healthier and quicker. Instead of making the batter from scratch, I used the high protein Kodiak Cakes mix, adding a little vanilla and Truvia Brown sugar to the batter. For the cinnamon swirl, I mostly used Truvia brown sugar with just a smidge of regular brown sugar. And for the cream cheese icing I used half powdered sugar, half Truvia. Yes, you could kinda sorta tell it was Truvia, but it was still delicious and we didn’t get a terrible sugar crash. So good!! A little time consuming compared to What I normally do but well worth it. Made for a Fathers Day treat and will definitely save for special breakfasts in the future.
These are amazing!!! They are time consuming compared to regular pancakes, but they taste way better than regular ones!
Wow! These were great and made a perfect amount for 5 people! Instead of cream cheese frosting (we are not huge cream cheese fans) I used a regular cinnamon roll frosting recipe!
Pretty good. A lot of different mixes to make. Had a hard time getting the mix to swirl nicely.
Time consuming but it was the first time making them. I didn't really like the consistency of the batter and definitely was not enough unless you're making them for yourself. Overall, they're yummy!
So the first pancake I made was without the brown sugar mixture (I forgot) and I tasted the pancake and it was soooo good. The second one I didn't forget the swirl. For me I came up with four pancakes. I didn't make the cream cheese part because I thought it would be too much for me. It's hecka sweet...I actually prefer the pancakes without the brown sugar mixture. Will definitely make again without the mixture.
It was AMAZING but sadly the cream cheese mixture didn’t go well so we just used syrup but it was still delicious!
Great recipe, followed other recommendations to cut the icing on half and it worked well. Thanks for sharing
Tastes amazing. But the cinnamon swirl melts out from under it when it is flipped and cooked on that side.
I think just incorporating the cinnamon mixture into the batter directly is a way easier way of making these. Having to deal with the mixture seeping out and caramelizing onto the griddle made the recipe more tedious and frustrating than I think it had to be. When I mixed the cinnamon into the batter the results were much simpler.
So I made this, it tastes good! My family really likes it! I used my own pancake recipe and icing for strudels. You might only want one though, at the end. Try to make part of a batch of regular, and only a few cinnamon ones. Other than that, great!
I would put a little less baking powder as I could taste it a bit in the pancakes. Otherwise excellent.
My family dove into these. We didn’t do the pancake batter from scratch (just used bisquick) but used the icing and cinnamon mix and procedure. Delicious!
Really good! I didn't use the pancakes part of the recipe, I made the pancake batter using Krusteaz Buttermilk mix (just add water), then followed the recipe for the cinnamon mixture and cream cheese icing. They get a nice crispy, cinnamony-sugar crust on the bottom side (you serve these bottoms up) and it is so good!
My daughter made these yesterday Kinda of a lighter version of cinnamon rolls
time consuming but very good. Tasted exactly like cinnamon rolls. My only thing would be to dial back on the amount of icing made. I put a thick layer of the icing on the pancakes and I still had a ton left over!
First time I made this I forgot to chill the cinnamon swirl mix and it made a mess. This time I follow the recipe, looks so much better, and I love the way the cinnamon gets a crispy texture to it. Husband loves these, and requested them for Father’s Day!?
OMG!! These things are like some kind of guilty pleasure!! They didn’t really cook as easily as the direction say. I had to flip them onto the plate and use a spatula to get the cinnamon mixture out of the pan and onto the pancake. But the result was the same. I will definitely use this again. It was delicious!!
These tasted just like cinnamon rolls! There wasn’t enough filling for 8 pancakes, so I think I’ll double it next time. The filling was too thick to swirl it, so maybe add a little water? I didn’t have any problems with the filling burning, but it carmelized a little and was yummy.The cream cheese icing was delicious and I had a lot left over. The actual pancake batter was awesome. I may use it from now on for regular pancakes.
Everything was absolutely delicious! Being one person, however, the recipe did take a while to prepare since everything needs to be prepared separately. As my dad tasted these pancakes he said, “Wow. These are delicious cinnamon rolls,” and I was glad my family and I really enjoyed these. I can’t wait to make them again!
OMG! Delicious! Very easy to make. Not a quick breakfast, but worth the wait.
This is a great recipe!! My kids and I loved it!!
Grandkids loved these! More work than regular pancakes but much easier than making cinnamon rolls!
I only gave these four stars instead of five because I had some technical difficulties! I made them as written other than I didn't make the cream cheese icing. The cinnamon brown sugar filling was very solid so when I tried to pipe it from the bag, I squeezed so hard that the bag burst. I ended up just sprinkling blobs of the filling onto the pancakes which worked fine. They tasted great - we all loved them! The recipes does make a lot of the filling, probably enough for almost twice as many pancakes. That would make them a little healthier too.
What an awesome recipe! I wish I'd thought of it. I did cheat and used a pancake mix.
The first time I made these exactly as written. Everyone loved them- even my partner who doesn't like sweets. The second time I used pancake mix- that was mistake! Instead of delicate, lighter than air pancakes, I had dense and bland cakes. Next time I'll skip the icing and use cinnamon syrup and double the batter portion for my family of 4. These are worth the labor for a special breakfast.
BEST pancake batter ever! I swapped the milk for cream for a richer taste and its amazing!
The most delicious break... wait dessert you'll ever have for breakfast!
Good but very sweet. Start with the brown sugar part, it has to chill in the frigerator 10 minutes.
I found it too much work for the result. A cinnamon swirl that was difficult to do, too much rather bland frosting for the amount of pancakes, both combined with a run-of-the-mill pancake recipe.Would do a couple things differently if I made again, but probably will try a different recipe next time.
followed what the directions said, was expecting more flavor. Sounded good, will have to work with it.
Delicious but takes a while to make. The consistency of my cinnamon swirl didn’t quite squeeze easily so I’ll be working on that aspect the next time I make these.
Grandkids loved them. Used Krusteaz buttermilk pancake mix.
Wow. These are the bomb. The sugar bomb, at least! These pancakes are really good, they taste like something you'd get at IHOP.
Delicious!!! I followed the recipe as published in the AllRecipes magazine which was slightly different. Looking over the recipe here it was such a slight difference I am sure it would be just as perfect. The recipe makes exactly 8 pancakes as written with the perfect amount of cinnamon filling and icing. I did have trouble making actual cinnamon swirls. They turned out like a Nike swoosh but no one cared. This recipe is a keeper.
These were so awesome, I can't wait to make them again. I cheated and used pancake mix, but the rest of the recipe I did exactly. The cinnamon/sugar ratio is perfect and the icing is not too much. Perfect balance! The only thing I would change is to beat the cream cheese first and maybe only microwave for 15 seconds to melt the butter since my cheese came out slight lumpy. Otherwise great great recipe. We'll be making this again soon.
Love love love!! I used premade pancake mix because I’m lazy but after that, it’s really not that hard to make. Maybe next time I’ll make a different frosting. This one was good, just not my favorite. Overall, the recipe is a complete success!!
My husband LOVES these pancakes. Not for those on a diet or the faint of heart, but the occasionally make an amazing cheat breakfast.
wow just wow!!! this was to die for. I don't know why I didn't think of it before
it was amazing
