Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes

by beth on May 9, 2010


For Mother’s Day I put in a spe­cial request to Hubby ear­lier this week, I asked for his cin­na­mon swirl pan­cakes for break­fast.   He makes a mean batch of pan­cakes, they are to die for.  I love that he is able to impress me with his mad skills in the kitchen.  He was happy to oblige my request today, which was a won­der­ful thing.  He had his cin­na­mon swirl pan­cakes wait­ing for me when I got up. The house smelled heav­enly when I made my way down­stairs to the kitchen.

It was good thing that he had break­fast for me, I mean after all I did give birth to all of his chil­dren.  He didn’t have endure those long months grow­ing babies, then birthing them, nurs­ing them, & the day in/day out of man­ag­ing the home.  Did he end up with stretch marks?  Nope.  He has me, I have the stretch marks to prove it (oh do I ever!).   And for that I got yummy cin­na­mon pan­cakes.  Along with a beau­ti­ful neck­lace & ear­rings.  Good man. I think I’ll keep him around.

Now for Hubby’s Cin­na­mon Swirl Pan­cakes.  The recipe makes 16–20 pan­cakes, depend­ing on size of the pancake.

What You Need:

3 Cups All Pur­pose Flour

2 Table­spoons & 1 Tea­spoon Bak­ing Powder

2 Tea­spoons of Cinnamon

2 Table­spoons Sugar

2 Tea­spoons Salt

2 1/2 Cups Milk

2 Tea­spoons Vanilla

1/4 Cup Butter

2 Eggs

Pow­dered Sugar For Topping!

How to put it together:

Sift together all your dry ingre­di­ents (flour, bak­ing pow­der, salt, sugar, cin­na­mon) with a sifter into a bowl.  Melt your but­ter in a dish (on a grid­dle or the microwave).   Add but­ter and all other wet (eggs, vanilla, milk) ingre­di­ents.  Mix the dry & wet together in your bowl.  Don’t worry about mak­ing it totally lump free, lumps aren’t your enemy in pan­cakes (on your thighs they are, in the pan­cakes a few lumps are good).  Place your mixed bat­ter by the spoon­ful onto a hot grid­dle or pan.  The pan­cakes are ready to flip when the edges begin to bub­ble up.  Flip & brown the other side.  Then serve with lots of pow­dered sugar on top.

And enjoy.  I mean really enjoy them.  You will because they are deli­cious.  Worth every stretch mark that those beau­ti­ful babies gave you.
