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



  1. 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 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Cream 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
