Cinnamon FIlling

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • cup brown sugar
  • teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt, (can omit if desired)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


Cinnamon Filling

  • In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon and place into a pastry bag or plastic baggie for piping. Set aside.


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk in the milk, egg, vanilla extract, and oil, until incorporated.
  • Heat skillet over medium heat, and spray it with nonstick spray.
  • Using a ⅛-¼ size measuring cup, pour batter onto skillet. Spread the batter out more if necessary, to about 4-inch diameters.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • When your pancake begins to form bubbles around the edges, pipe the filling. Starting at the center of the pancake, squeeze the filling on top of the pancake batter in a swirl, just as you see in a regular cinnamon roll.
  • Cook the pancake 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bubbles begin popping on top of the pancake and it's golden brown on the bottom.
  • Gently but quickly flip over pancake. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes (with temperature still on medium low), until the other side is golden as well.
  • Wipe out the pan with a paper towel, and repeat with the remaining pancake batter and cinnamon filling.
  • Serve pancakes topped with a drizzle of glaze.
