Baked Cinnamon Roll Pancake

This is the most amazing idea!  Pancakes that are cooked all at the same time.  If you have a family that is larger than "normal" you know what it is like to serve pancakes.  Standing at the griddle for what seems like an eternity and by the time you actually get to make and eat the pancakes for yourself the rest of the family has gone on with their day or are asking "What's for lunch?"  This will blow your mind.  Make the batter pour in a cookie sheet and bake.  Say what????  Of course this recipe is courtesy of Pinterest and Big Red Kitchen.  Of course the lovely folks at Big Red Kitchen had a much more artful display of the cinnamon swirl, but "Hey Jack" I am lame, lame, lame. 
Holy yumminess Batman!
The Pancake
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 4 T. butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
Cinnamon Roll Filling
  • 4 T. butter, melted
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 2 t. cinnamon
Maple Cream Cheese Drizzle
  • 2 ozs. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2+ T. maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a cookie sheet (17x11 or so) with  nonstick spray. In a large mixing bowl beat together eggs, milk and melted butter.  Add sugar.  Slowly whisk in flour.  Add baking powder and salt and stir to thoroughly combine.  Pour batter into prepared cookie sheet.  Combine the ingredients for the Cinnamon Roll Filling.  Pour into a small Ziploc bag and cut a small hole in one of the corners.  (Now if you check out the photo below from The Big Red Kitchen you will see how they made it to look like 12 cinnamon rolls. I was not so successful.) My method: squeeze the bag of filling, dropping dots of filling all over the batter.  Swirl in the filling with a skewer. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 9 minutes or until center is set.  Remove from the oven.  Combine ingredients for Maple Cream Cheese Drizzle.  Use as much syrup as needed to get the desired consistency you want.  Place drizzle in a Ziploc, cut off a corner, and drizzle.  Cut into squares and serve with sausage or bacon and a side of fruit.  Yummm
You will see below that Big Red Kitchen in clearly the winner for beauty! However, I am sure the they taste the same either way. :)
