Cinnamon Roll Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup

The name says it all... HOLY YUM! It's like a cinnamon roll without the guilt, well without most of the guilt anyways! :) The pancakes came out nice and fluffy this time, I have tried other recipes and that have been heavy and dense. I adapted this recipe from Tasty Kitchen.

Cinnamon Pancakes with Vanilla Cream Cheese Syrup

1-½ cup All-purpose Flour
3 Tablespoons White Sugar
½ teaspoons Salt
4 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
2 whole Eggs divided
1 cup Milk
¼ cups Butter, Melted
1 Tablespoon Vanilla

In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon with a whisk. Whisk well to make sure everything is combined.

In a small bowl whip the egg whites for a couple minutes until peaks start to form. Place aside.

In separate large bowl, beat together egg yolks, milk, butter and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture. Gently fold in whipped egg whites until incorporated. (Important for fluffy texture!)

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto griddle. Brown on both sides.

Serve warm with syrup drizzled over the top.
