Cinnamon Pancakes

Sometimes, when I'm lazy & out of food at the house, I make pancakes for dinner. They're easy & I always have the ingredients on hand. I'll spice them up by adding blueberries, pumpkin, cinnamon, etc.

Earlier in the week, I found a recipe for Cinnamon Pancakes on Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen site & decided to give them a try. We have a keeper! They were SO GOOD!

Ingredients:

* 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 3 Tbsp white sugar
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 4 tsp baking powder
* 1 Tbsp cinnamon
* 2 whole eggs, beaten
* 1 cup milk
* 2 Tbsp corn syrup
* 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
* 1/4 cup butter, melted



Directions:

1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder & cinnamon with a whisk. Make sure it is all well combined.


2. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, milk, corn syrup & vanilla.


3. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture.


Stir in the melted butter. The batter will be really smooth.


4. Heat a lightly greased griddle over medium/low heat. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake.


5. Brown on both sides.


6. Serve warm with maple syrup (or a cinnamon roll type icing - yum!).

  2. Same here! Except I don't have corn syrup. Is there a substitute because I don't know what else I would use it for.

  3. Beth, if you don't have any Karo syrup, you could try substituting honey or maple syrup (although they may change the taste just a little). You could also mix 2 Tbsp sugar with 1/2 Tbsp warm water for form a syrup.

  4. these look delicious! I can't cook a pancake to save my life, BUT I have an equally useful waffle maker that I'll try them in instead! :)
