Recipe type: Breakfast
  • Pancake mix (I used Aunt Jemima)
  • ½ cup butter (melted)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • cinnamon chips (I used Hershey brand)
  1. Begin by melting your ½ cup of butter. Once melted, add in the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir it all together.
  2. Transfer your butter mixture into a Ziploc and set it aside.
  3. Next, prepare your pancake mix.
  4. Place a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat and spray it with Pam.
  5. Once the skillet is heated, add in a ½ cup measurement of pancake batter.
  6. While the pancake batter is starting to cook, grab your Ziploc bag with the butter mixture and cut the very end of one of the corners. Carefully move all the filling to that one side of the Ziploc bag.
  7. You’ll know when to start making your swirl once you notice the pancake batter starting to bubble.
  8. Starting from the center, make a circular pattern with the butter mixture around the pancake. You’ll also want to sprinkle on some of your cinnamon chips here.
  9. Carefully flip over the pancake and let it cook for about a minute longer. You’ll notice that the butter mixture will start to ooze out the sides just a little bit. This is normal.
  10. Transfer the finished pancake to a plate. Make sure to wipe out the bottom of the pan with a paper towel before moving on to the next pancake.
  11. Complete the process all over again for the remaining pancakes.
  12. Before serving, sprinkle on a few extra cinnamon chips because, well, why not!
