Last Sunday of National Pancake Month {Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes}

Ah, I'll miss you National Pancake Month.....  In acknowledgement of the end of this special month and the impending doom of our March diet I wanted to do something special.

So, my family loves cinnamon rolls and they love pancakes, so I thought I'd combine the two..... and even if you don't like the cinnamon roll idea this is an awesome pancake recipe.... I use it as the base for all my pancakes, it makes about a dozen or so good sized fluffy pancakes.

for the pancakes:
1 & 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp kosher salt
2 & 1/4 c buttermilk
3 TBS butter, melted,
2 eggs
2 TBS honey

Combine EVERYTHING ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix well with a mixer preferably for a few minutes.  Batter should be not too thin. Set aside.

Now, turn your griddle on medium high [or your pan on stove].  My griddle doesn't require nonstick spray but if yours does spray now]. 

for the swirl:
3 TBSP melted butter
2/3 c brown sugar
1 & 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 & 1/2 TBSP flour

Combine the ingredients mixing well and then put in a Ziploc and snip a tiny triangle off the end of the bag for piping. Set aside.

You are ready!  I use a soup ladle to "measure" and put your batter down then immediately pipe on the cinnamon swirl.  Cook facing up for 3-4 minutes before flipping and finishing for 30-45 seconds.

VOILA!  The kids they come a runnin'
