Whether you’re avoiding animal products, have a dairy allergy or simply love almond milk (we know we do), don’t let the weekend pass you buy without a sweet, fluffy stack of goodness.
My mom makes the best cinnamon rolls in the world. I make amazing pancakes. We have joined forces and together, we present: Cinnamon Roll Pancakes! Take one bite of this vegan brunch hybrid and you’ll never need to wait in line for a Cronut again.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons vegan margarine or refined coconut oil, at room temperature
- 5 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- vegetable oil, for greasing
- 2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1/4 cup water
For the pancakes
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the almond milk and maple syrup. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk to combine. Do not overmix.
In a small bowl, mix together the margarine, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Transfer to a pastry bag or plastic zip-top bag and snip off one corner.
Lightly grease a large nonstick skillet or griddle and heat over medium heat. When the pan shimmers, measure out ¼ cup of the batter (or eyeball it) and pour it onto the skillet. Pipe a circular swirl of the cinnamon mixture into the batter. Repeat to fill the skillet. When small bubbles appear in the center of the pancakes, after about 4 minutes, flip. Cook on the other side for about 1 minute more, until lightly browned and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the skillet between batches as needed.
Meanwhile, make the glaze: in a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar and water and whisk until smooth.
Drizzle the pancakes with the glaze and serve.
