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.

A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
