Over Christmas I tried out a few recipes that I saw on Pinterest. Lacey and Leah had both made one of these before so I knew they were good. They were both not very hard and tasted delicious.
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes by Recipe Girl-
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon canola oil
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
CREAM CHEESE GLAZE: (since I don't like cream cheese I substituted for a plain vanilla glaze)
4 Tablespoons butter
2 ounces cream cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2. In a medium bowl, mix butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Scoop the filling into a small zip baggie and set aside. You don't want this to remain super-liquidy. It's best if it becomes a consistency similar to toothpaste.
The 2nd recipe I tried was Cinnamon Sugar Donuts that I found via pinterest as well.
Cinnamon Sugar Donuts
-Canned biscuits (anything BUT the flakey layer kind).
-Melted butter in a shallow bowl (4 tbls per 8 biscuits give or take)
-Sugar & Cinnamon in a shallow bowl (mixed together in your favorite proportions...I like a nice medium brown mixture.)
-Veggie oil to fill your pan up to about 1/2in or so.
As you can tell I made a double batch and we ate for 2 breakfast meals. The donut holes would be great with a strawberry or raspberry filling. These were so simple and so delicious so give it a try!
