What do you do when you want pancakes, cinnamon rolls and something with pumpkin for breakfast? Well this morning I was leaning towards pancakes because I knew I could add the pumpkin to those and then I thought why not add a cinnamon swirl.......so I did and they were absolutely divine!
1 freezer quality zip lock bag
1/2 stick butter melted
1/2 C brown sugar
1 T cinnamonMix these things together then set in the fridge so the butter starts to harden again while you work on the pancake batter.
3/4 cup of pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups of Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake mix
3/4 C Milk (add a little more if too thick)
1 T pumpkin pie spice
Mix these things together in a bowl and get your griddle all hot and ready. I put a small pat of butter down and let it melt then pour on a little pancake batter. Grab your ziplock of goodness ( the cinnamon and butter filled bag you put in the fridge) and snip the corner just a bit. now you are going to use it like a pastry bag and squeeze the goodness out that little corner. Then start in the center of the pancake and make a swirl pattern on the pancake with the cinnamon goodness. when pancake bubbles at the edge you are ready to flip it! flip it over and let it the sugar and butter melt into that pancake! when it has browned just a tad pull if off and you really don't even have to butter these babies! However I do recommend that you make the cream cheese Topping below and drizzle it on top!
Cream Cheese Topping:
3oz Cream cheese
1/4 C powder sugar
2 T Milk
soften cream cheese and blend with sugar the slowly add milk to the consistency you would like!
