We had a breakfast for dinner night a few weeks ago and my Husband requested pancakes. So I decided to make them extra special this time around (and this is soooo easy to do!!)
In a bowl partially melt 2 tablespoons of butter. You don't want it hot and watery...just at that point where its about to melt. Add some brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg until it forms a thick paste. Set this aside.
Make your pancake batter (1 Cup Flour, 2 Tsp baking Powder, 1/2 Tsp Salt, 1 Cup Whole Milk, 1 Egg, 1 Tbsp Canola Oil). Whisk your batter until just combined.
I have a lovely flattop grill that i like to make pancakes on. Pour out your batter on the pre-heated grill or pan and allow to cook.
Pour the prepared butter/sugar/cinnamon mixture into a small zip lock bag and cut off one of the corners. Once you see some bubbles and they start to pop swirl on some of the butter sugar mixture as seen above.
now flip your pancakes.
Once they are cooked through and you flip them back over on your plate you will have a lovely cinnamon bun swirl! Awesome for kids breakfasts!
