These cinnamon sugar pancakes are a “flipping” perfect way to start the day over a lazy weekend. Needless to say, your kids will love you for it and flipping pancakes always turns into a fun family sport!
You could even double the recipe and make a big batch to refrigerate or freeze some. That way you could just heat up pancakes in the toaster for the children before they head off to school. You can keep the cooled pancakes in the fridge in an airtight container up to four days or in the freezer for up to two weeks.
These cinnamon sugar pancakes are so simple to make and takes only a few ingredients.
Mix until there is no visible flour, but don’t overmix. It’s okay if there are a few little lumps. They usually cook out. The consistency of the batter should be thick but pourable from a spoon. If not, you should add a little more milk.
Let the batter rest while you heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Use about 1/4 cup of the batter to make each pancake. Once the cinnamon roll pancakes begin to bubble on the surface and the edges are dry, flip with a spatula and continue cooking for another two minutes.
