cinnamon pancakes.

saturday mornings in our house typically mean pancakes. today, i decided to try something new. after seeing numerous pancake variations on pinterest within the last few weeks, i gave in to temptation and made a bit of a mess of our kitchen in the process. 

here's what you'll need:

dry ingredients:
one and one half cups of flour
three tablespoons of sugar
half a teaspoon of salt
four teaspoons of baking powder
one tablespoon cinnamon

combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. mix the ingredients together with a whisk.

wet ingredients:
two eggs (room temperature and beaten)
one cup of milk
two tablespoons of syrup
one fourth cup of butter (melted and slightly cooled)
one tablespoon of vanilla

add all wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together until well combined.

heat griddle or large skillet to medium heat. we used our griddle set to 350 degrees and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray before cooking the pancakes.

brown pancakes -- approximately three minutes on each side.

we topped our cinnamon pancakes with a powdered sugar frosting, like what you'd put on cinnamon rolls, but shane said he might have preferred regular syrup.

one cup powdered sugar
two tablespoons melted butter
two tablespoons milk

stir until smooth and then drizzle lightly over pancakes. a little seemed to go a long way.

these pancakes may not become our typical saturday morning fare, but they were a nice treat. and, they were devoured fast enough that i was unable to get a picture of the final product. that's always a good sign.
