COOK TIME: 20 mins



  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Nonstick cooking spray, as needed


  • 1½ cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1. MAKE THE CINNAMON FILLING: In a medium bowl, mix the butter with the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt to combine. Transfer to a medium plastic zip-top bag. Squeeze the filling down into one corner of the bag and snip the corner of the bag with scissors. Set aside.

2. MAKE THE PANCAKES: In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder and salt to combine. In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk with the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract to combine.

3. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and whisk until smooth.

4. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Spray the hot pan with nonstick cooking spray.

5. Working in batches of 3, ladle or scoop ⅓ cup of pancake batter onto a large skillet or griddle. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Squeeze a spiral of the cinnamon filling on top of the pancakes. Continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

6. Flip the pancakes and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the other side. Remove from the pan and continue with the remaining batter and cinnamon filling. Set aside.

7. MAKE THE ICING: Whisk the confectioners’ sugar with the milk and vanilla extract to combine. Add additional milk in small amounts, as needed, to make the icing easy to drizzle.

8. To serve, stack three pancakes on each plate and either drizzle with the icing or serve it on the side.

The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
