Wow, it feels like forever ago that Chris and I made these. It wasn’t planned or anything, just one day Chris asked what I wanted for breakfast and the blog I had seen about these popped right into my head… and since we had all the ingredients on hand, we made them.
The blog I found them on: http://www.bigredkitchen.com/2010/06/cinnamon-roll-pancakes.html while stumbling, of course!
It didn’t take long to make, which is great for Saturday morning, and the clean up afterwards was minimal (unlike the caramel apple cheesecake we made last night!). We used the pre-made pancake, just-add-water-stuff, which cut a lot of time out as well. Putting the cinnamon mixture and icing mixture in plastic baggies over tumblers was an idea from the blog with the recipe, and I have used the techique for many things since- great idea!
This is a pancake on the griddle, they looked so pretty until it was time to flip…. flipping took a while to get used to, but eventually Chris mastered it.
These are the pancakes in the oven staying warm. You can see how the flipping improved as we went, some are mis-shappen mishaps, but the ones we did later on actually look good 🙂
Here is my finished plate, everything was good, I sliced up some strawberries and banana’s to go with the pancakes, and as we settled in to eat them I took a few bites then suddenly remembered- I hate pancakes!! I HATE them, hate hate hate pancakes! But… I ate my entire plate, surprisingly.
I won’t make them again any time soon, since I hate pancakes, but Chris really liked them, so they will be made again… and I have to admit the icing was yummy 🙂
That night, we didn’t really feel like cooking, but Chris made some chicken for us to eat, I was so proud of him, It was a bone-in, skin-on chicken thigh, and he lifted the skin to put in garlic and onions for a richer flavour, and cooked it in a honey sauce…. it was really good- I was shocked (not that it tasted good, I knew it would, but at his technique)!
I love him! ❤
