The results were smashing, in a very good way. Fluffy pancakes, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, drizzled with Cinnamon Syrup. BOOM! It’s like eating a cinnamon-infused cloud and that would be a dream come true.
Cinnamon Pancake Ingredients
Here’s everything you need to make these fluffy cinnamon pancakes:
- all-purpose flour: the flour of choice for these pancakes. You can also swap for a 1:1 gluten-free all-purpose flour.
- baking powder: gives pancakes their fluff! Make sure your baking powder is fresh.
- sugar: to make them slightly sweet.
- cinnamon: a dash of cinnamon gives these pancakes a delicious flavor.
- salt: to enhance the other flavors.
- milk: use regular or a non-dairy alternative.
- egg: to bind the ingredients.
- melted butter: makes the pancakes moist and adds delicious buttery goodness.
- vanilla extract: brings out the cinnamon and sugar.
How to make Cinnamon Pancakes
This recipe is my regular Fluffy Pancake Recipe but with added cinnamon and served with my homemade Cinnamon Syrup. Best part, you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry now!
Once you’ve assessed and measured everything; combine the dry ingredients in one large bowl. Make a well or “volcano” in the middle, add the eggs, melted butter, and milk. Whisk. BOOM! You’re ready to cook. Bonus points if you had the pancake griddle heating.
Cinnamon Pancakes from Scratch
There is nothing like homemade pancakes from scratch and they’re so easy to make. If you like to keep ready-made pancake mix on hand, you can double/triple the dry ingredient recipe, store it in a zip bag labeled with recipe directions, and keep it in the pantry.
How to make the Perfect Fluffy Cinnamon Pancake
There are two important steps to getting perfectly tall and fluffy pancakes!
Don’t overmix the batter
Sometimes we can get a little stir-crazy when it comes to pancake batter but this shouldn’t be the case. You do want to mix it until smooth but leave a few lumps. If you see bubbles in the batter, you are on your way to fluffy pancake heaven. If not, check your baking powder, it could be expired.
Which brings us to tip #2!
Use baking powder
Baking powder is what causes pancakes to rise so make sure you are using fresh baking powder. Anything older than 6 months needs to be tossed!
But to really see how it all comes together, watch this quick video.
Can you freeze Cinnamon Pancakes?
As with any of my pancake recipes, yes! After you finish doubling the batch, allow extra pancakes to cool down to room temperature before placing in a zip bag. Freeze for up to 3 months and reheat in the microwave for instant pancake access.
What to put on Cinnamon Pancakes
You could top a tall stack of Cinnamon Pancakes with chopped apples, sliced bananas, or peanut butter, but you’ll most definitely NEED my Homemade Cinnamon Syrup.
You won’t find it on grocery store shelves but this recipe takes less than 2 minutes and 2 ingredients to make and will last you for many batches of pancakes!
