Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

A combination of two morning favorites - pancakes and cinnamon rolls - I think I'm in love.
If your feeling energetic, you can make your pancakes from scratch.  This also requires Apple Pie Spice.  If you don't have any, you can make your own.

Apple Pie Spice:  1/4 cup cinnamon
                             1 Tbsp. allspice
                             1 tsp. nutmeg
                             2 tsp. ground ginger
                             1/2 tsp. cardamom
Try to control yourself!

If you would like to make your pancakes from scratch here is what you will need.  I used the Bisquick recipe for pancakes and added 1 tsp. of the Apple Pie Spice.
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. apple pie spice
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt.
Whisk together:
  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 4 oz. Philadelphia Original Cooking Cream 
  • 3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
 Niagra Falls in your mouth?
For the Creamy Icing:
  • 6 oz. Philadelphia Original Cooking Creme (I used softened whipped cream cheese)
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Whisk cream cheese, condensed milk, milk and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat until warm.  Add milk as needed to thin sauce until desired consistency is reached.

Spiced Maple Syrup:  (the best part)
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tsp. unsalted butter 
  • 1/4 tsp. apple pie spice (I did not add this to the syrup mixture)
Heat maple syrup, condensed milk, and butter in microwaveable cup.  Heat until butter is melted, about 1-1/2 minutes.

Finish off these special pancakes with a sweet taste, swirl the two sauces - one with the maple syrup and the other sweetened cream cheese - over the top. 

I think I'm going to call these "Hurricane Pancakes" - Unforgettable!
Stay safe everyone!
