Cinnamon Filling

  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Cinnamon Roll Glaze

  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Start by making the cinnamon roll filling. Mix the butter, sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Scoop the mix into a piping bag or zippered plastic bag. Cut the tip off of the piping bag, making a small hole about ⅛ of an inch (about the size of a pencil eraser). Set aside.
  • Next, make the cinnamon roll frosting. Beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and beat again until the mix is light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract.
  • Scoop the frosting into another piping bag or plastic bag then set aside.
  • Make the pancake batter. Whisk the Bisquick pancake mix with the milk, vanilla and egg until a smooth batter forms.
  • Heat a medium skillet over medium heat on the stovetop. Spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray or use a little extra butter to grease it well.
  • Scoop about ½ cup of the pancake batter into the hot pan. Once the pancake batter has spread and bubbles start to form in the batter (about 2 minutes), use the piping bag filled with cinnamon butter to make a spiral of cinnamon in the pancake. Keep the spiral inside the center of the pancake- going too close to the edges will make the filling cook too fast and get crunchy.
  • Flip the pancake and cook for another 1 minute in the pan.
  • Remove the cinnamon roll pancake from the skillet and place it on a plate. Drizzle some of the cream cheese frosting over the pancake and then enjoy!
  • Repeat the steps to cook the pancakes until you have used all the batter, filling and frosting.


  • Skip the piping bag for the cream cheese frosting and just spread the frosting over each pancake.
  • You can use homemade pancake batter in place of Bisquick mix if you’d like.
  • Place the pancakes on a tray as you cook them then put the tray in a 200 degree oven while you make the entire batch. Frost them all right before serving. This makes it easy to make this recipe for a crowd.
