I love Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast. I love the sticky gooeyness of them. I don’t love that in order for me to have Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast I either have to get up super early or I have to make it the night before. Sometimes I just want instantaneous gratification. While not exactly instant these come pretty darn close. These are also really fun to make with kids, so they might just be perfect for breakfast Christmas morning (especially if Santa forgot to plan breakfast with all that last-minute shopping/wrapping)!

 Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon honey

Cinnamon swirl:
2 tablespoons melted butter (Instead of butter we used a little milk to thin it out)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon flour

Mix all the ingredients together to make the pancakes and set aside. Preheat your pan or skillet and lightly grease it. Make the Cinnamon Swirl mixture and place it into a a small bottle with a squirt nozzle (the name is escaping me…I used one)or a small baggie with a snip in the corner. Spread your batter into small pancakes on the griddle. Immediately add the cinnamon swirls. Cook the pancakes until small bubbles form on the topside of the pancake and do not fill back in with batter. Flip over the pancakes with a turner and cook for another 30 seconds to a minute.
