Cinnamon Pancakes with Cinnamon Roll Glaze

Prep 15 Mins Cook 15-20 Mins Total 30-35 Mins
The batter for our cinnamon pancakes has a whole tablespoon of cinnamon added. Since we’re topping them with a sweet cream cheese glaze – the extra spice from the cinnamon is really nice. These pancakes are incredibly fluffy and cook up to be pretty thick (you could thin them out with a little more milk if you wanted) They are almost cake like.

Ingredients (camping version)

CINNAMON PANCAKES Makes approximately 8 pancakes about 6-7 inches around

  • 1 ½ cups instant pancake mix
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups milk or water as required


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk


In a large bowl whisk together pancake mix, cinnamon. Once mixed add vanilla extract, brown sugar and either milk or water and whisk into a batter. Its ok if the batter has small lumps, in fact you want that – it’s important not to over-stir the batter.

Lightly spray skillet or griddle with non-stick cooking spray of lightly brush with melted butter. Then use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to spoon batter onto skillet or griddle. Gently spread the batter into a 6-inch circle. The batter will be quite thick.

When you notice the edges of the pancake to look dry and little bubbles start to appear on the top surfaces of the pancake turn over. This should take about 2 minutes (watch your heat). Once flipped, cook another 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked in the middle.

MAKE GLAZE (in advance)
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove pan from heat then whisk in the cream cheese. It will look separated at first, but after whisking will come together into a thick paste. Whisk in the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of the milk. You want to be able to drizzle the glaze over the pancakes. If it’s to thick add another tablespoon or two of milk.

Use previously stated recipe to make at home and store into Ziploc storage bag. Snip off a small corner of the bottom of the bag to allow you to drizzle onto pancakes. May want to make extra of glaze since it is so good and you won’t need syrup.
