Pancake Batter:
3 cups (750 mL) all-purpose flour
4 (20 mL) teaspoons Fleischmann's® Baking Powder
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
4 eggs
2-1/2 cups (625 mL) 2% milk
1/4 cup (60 mL) + 1 tbsp (15 mL) Mazola® Vegetable Oil
Cinnamon Swirl:
1/4 cup (60 mL) packed brown sugar
1 (15 mL) tablespoon Mazola® Vegetable Oil
1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) ground cinnamon
Cream Cheese Icing:
2 oz (30 g) brick-style plain cream cheese, at room temperature
2 tbsp (30 mL) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup (250 mL) icing sugar (approx.)
2 tbsp (30 mL) 2% milk (approx.)
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon


Pancake Batter: In large bowl, whisk together flour,

baking powder and salt; set aside. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs and

milk; whisk in 1/4 cup oil. Whisk egg mixture into flour mixture just until

combined (do not over-mix; batter will be slightly lumpy). Let stand for 10


Cinnamon Swirl: Transfer 1/3 cup pancake batter into

small bowl. Whisk in brown sugar, oil and cinnamon until well combined.

Transfer to piping bag with 1/8-inch round tip; set aside.


Cheese Icing: Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; beat in

butter until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in icing sugar, milk, vanilla and

cinnamon (icing should be thick enough to drizzle over pancakes; stir in up to 2

tbsp more icing sugar or 1 tbsp more milk as needed.

Heat large non-stick skillet or

griddle over medium heat; brush with some of the remaining oil. Using 1/3 cup measure,

scoop batter into pan, at least 2 inches (5 cm) apart. Immediately pipe cinnamon

swirl over each pancake.

Cook pancakes for 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbles

start to form. Flip and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until golden on the

bottom. Wipe pan clean with paper towel between batches and brush with more oil

as needed.

Keep pancakes warm on rack in 275˚F (135˚C) oven. Just

before serving, drizzle icing over each pancake.

Tip: Serve

pancakes with a sprinkle of toasted pecans, raisins or blueberries.
