I love pancakes, but sometimes I like to switch things up and make them in various flavors. So today, I decided to make some homemade cinnamon pancakes. They're simply delicious and very easy to prepare.
- 2 cups of self-rising flour
- 2 cups of milk
- 2 to 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of melted butter
- 1/4 cup of Splenda or regular granulated sugar
- Butter-flavored cooking spray for the griddle or skillet
Sift 2 cups of self-rising flour into a medium-sized bowl. Then add 2 cups of milk (you can use any type of milk), 2 to 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of melted butter, and 1/4 cup of Splenda or regular granulated sugar to the sifted flour.
Blend the ingredients together well. I generally just use a fork. Do not overstir your batter. Over-mixing the batter tends to make the pancakes tough once they've cooked.
Allow the batter to sit for just a couple of minutes. In the meantime, heat up your pancake griddle. Don't have a griddle? No problems; just use a skillet. Spray the griddle or skillet with butter cooking spray.
Using a ladle, dip out a large spoonful of batter, then pour it on the griddle or in the skillet. I am using an extra large griddle, and I will be repeating these steps one after another. That way, all the pancakes will be cooked at once. When using a skillet, I generally only cook one to two pancakes at a time.
Cook the pancakes over medium heat for about four minutes, then flip them over and finish cooking them for another 3 to 4 minutes. The pancakes will be golden brown on both sides once they're finished cooking.
Plate your pancakes up, then add sugar-free pancake syrup, maple syrup, or whipped cream over them.
