The sweet smell and swirl of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon will remind you of warm and fresh homemade cinnamon rolls. And topped with Maple Cream Cheese Glaze? Gah!
The Maple Cream Sugar Glaze will slowly melt down over the top of your pancakes - you can start with either a shmear or a drizzle, whatever you prefer. You can also leave off the glaze completely if you want to - these pancakes taste glorious all warm and by themselves, bite after wonderful bite!
I have a small plastic squeeze bottle that I use to make these, but you can just as easily use a Ziplock bag and cut off a corner to get the same effect. Gently squeeze onto the top of each pancake in a swirl, starting at the center of the pancake and moving to the outside.
If you get to close to the edge of the pancake when you're making your swirl, the buttery brown sugar and cinnamon may run off the pancake. You'll notice that it will bubble up like crazy on your griddle, but no worries! You'll just have a golden cinnamon swirl edge on your pancakes. One trick is to make sure that you wipe your griddle off completely between each batch of pancakes, so that the excess cinnamon swirl doesn't burn on your griddle or attach itself to your next batch of pancakes.
Hope that you'll give them a try and let me know what you think!
