The Weather...

A gorgeous, sunny, 67F!

Right Now I Am...

Doing everything but the dishes.  Procrastination...

Thinking...

That I really need to just get the dishes done and move on!  lol

On My Reading Pile...


The Maid of Fairbourne Hall

I took this book with me camping this past weekend and didn't even crack it open!  After I get everything put away and situated, I hope to start it today.


On My TV...


We're trying to get caught up on AGT.

What I Found While Surfing the Net...


Photo: We served these Cinnamon Roll Pancakes at Sunday Brunch.  mmmmm, mmmmm good.  Enjoy!

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Ingredients:

for the Pancakes:
4 cups all-purpose flour
8 tsps baking powder
2 tsp. salt
4 cups milk
4 tbsps vegetable oil
4 large eggs, lightly beaten

for the Cinnamon Filling
1 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp ground cinnamon

for the Cream Cheese Glaze
1/2 cup butter
4 oz. cream cheese
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Directions:

To make the Cinnamon Filling:
Mix the three ingredients together. Place in a disposable piping bag and snip the end off or put in a Ziploc bag and snip the corner off.


To make the Pancakes:
Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another bowl. Stir them together until everything is moistened leaving a few lumps.

Heat your griddle to exactly 325 degrees. You don't want these too cook too quickly, and you won't want your cinnamon to burn. 

Make desired size pancake on greased griddle and then using the piping bag and starting at the center of the pancake, create a cinnamon swirl. Wait until the pancake has lots of bubble before you try to turn it. You will find that when you turn it the cinnamon swirl will melt. The cinnamon will melt out and create the craters which the cream cheese glaze will fill.

To make the Cream Cheese Glaze:
In a microwave safe bowl melt the butter and cream cheese and then stir together. Whisk in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Add a little milk if needed to make
it a glaze consistency. 

Place pancake on plate, then cover with cream cheese glaze.
