Cinnamon Roll Pancakes give a new twist to your standard cinnamon roll or pancake breakfast. It is basically a new delivery method for eating cinnamon rolls. They are filled with a cinnamon swirl and topped with a smooth cream cheese frosting which makes them really damn good. Get ready for that morning sugar rush.

  5. Repeat for each pancake.

Cream Cheese Glaze:

  2. Remove from the heat and mix in the cream cheese. Whisk until almost smooth.
