Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Oh. My. Goodness! These Cinnamon Roll Pancakes are amazing! The kids love pancakes and ask for them all the time. I decided to make these awesome pancakes as a special treat a few days ago. When the little ones saw me putting the cinnamon swirl on them, they started to complain. "No Mom! We just want your normal pancakes." and "Ew. That's gross!" All reservations were gone at first bite. The kids really liked loved them. My 11 year old said these Cinnamon Roll Pancakes were the best pancakes she has EVER eaten.

1 batch pancake batter (Fluffy Pancakes or Granny's Farm Pancakes are both fantastic, or you could use a boxed mix)

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside to thicken (it should be about as thick as toothpaste before using). Combine softened butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract and mix well; set aside. Prepare pancake batter. Heat a large pan over medium heat, or a griddle to 350. Pour brown sugar filling mixture into a zip lock bag and snip off a small piece in one bottom corner. Pour 1/3 cup pancake batter onto the heated griddle or pan to form pancakes. Cook until the edges just start to look dry and there are bubbles in the center. Starting in the center of the pancake, squeeze the filling into a spiral on the top of the pancakes (stop within about 1 inch of the edge so the filling doesn't spill over the edge). Flip the pancakes and cook until the bottom is golden (the filling will spill out and be a little messy, but super yummy!)

To serve, drizzle with cream cheese glaze. Enjoy!
