Cinnabon inspired Cinnamon Pancakes with Cream Cheese Icing

Cinnabon inspired Cinnamon pancakes with Cream Cheese Icing



Good evening ya'll!

I can't wait for the winter vacation. Like literally! This e-learning experience is the worst. Sometimes gets on my nerves, especially if you have a child doing their kindergarten. So exhausting! And every day in the morning I just sit so blank as I have no time to prepare anything fancy. The breakfast or lunch here since distance learning started has been so boring which otherwise never happens here.



I kept scrolling my phone whilst I got some time to chill once my LO's break time happened, just looking for inspiration ๐Ÿ˜‰
But my my even 5 minutes in break time is precious. But I was wanting to cook something exciting. And not the every day stuff. So all that came to my mind was pancakes! And I was sick of all the basic combinations like maple syrup, honey, Lotus biscoff, bananas, blueberries and other berries etc. Suddenly I had this craving for Cinnabon rolls. So I asked the Mister if he was okay with cinnamon flavor for pancakes. He nodded and then and there I knew I had to do this! ๐Ÿ˜ And the Cinnabon inspired cinnamon pancakes with cream cheese frosting was born. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Even though the flavors were the same, the textures made a slight difference and I loved it! The pancakes and the frosting was ready in less than half an hour and the perfect solution on a weekday breakfast for busy momma's like me. This was an instant idea and added in ingredients as though a recipe book was open in front of me. But honestly, it was indeed the best pancake flavor ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค

Though the pictures did not turn out like that I had in my mind as the Mister was in such a hurry, I urge you must try! Super easy and delicious, kids are going to love this๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘Œ Well, my LO approved! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
