Maple & Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 c. Bisquick
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 + 2 tbsp. Milk
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. Maple Extract

Instructions

  In a large bowl, mix together Bisquick Pancake batter, eggs, milk, vanilla extract, maple extract, and butter until well combined.

  In a separate small bowl, combine 5 tbsp. Butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon and mix. Pour the cinnamon mixture into a piping bag or food storage bag. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow the cinnamon mixture to set and don’t cut open the tip of the bag until ready to use.

  Heat the griddle and melt a tablespoon of butter. Pour ½ cup of pancake mix onto the griddle and, in a circular motion, pipe the cinnamon mixture. Cook on both sides for 2-3 minutes.

  To make topping, in a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until creamy.

  Top the pancakes off with the cream cheese topping and whipped cream if desired and serve.
