As a Brazilian I'm not used to having pancakes for breakfast, but I do love them! It's been a while since I spotted this idea at C Mom Cook, and was eager to try it. Thanks Shelley for sharing this creative way of cooking pancakes!

It's fairly simple to make and the result is surprisingly beautiful, not to say delicious! This is how you do it.

In a bowl, you will whip up some softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Then you will transfer this mixture to a pastry bag, or ziplock bag, or even a parchment paper cone to be discarded when you finish.

If you want to learn how to make one of these, you can easily find many tutorials online.
Set the filled bag aside, and in the same bowl (no need to wash it!) you will combine all the ingredients for the pancake batter and  whisk until well combined.

Next, you will heat up (low heat) a pan and brush a little butter. Spoon the batter to the desired size.

I used a small pan, so I had to make them one at a time, but you can use a large pan and make several in one go.

Now, you will get that ziplock or parchment cone with the butter mixture and you will snip off the tip in order to pipe not very thick lines, something like this:

When pancake starts to bubble and sides start to dry, it's time to flip it.

Cook the other side being careful not to burn the sugar from the spiral.

When ready, turn it onto a plate and.... surprise! Look at that gorgeous indentation!

Now you can enjoy your pancake with any topping of your choice. These turned out delicious for the palate and the eyes :o)

(Recipe adapted from C Mom Cook)

For the pancakes:

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 1/2  cups milk
1 egg

For the Spiral:

60g butter, softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar 
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1 pinch of nutmeg 


After each batch of pancakes is done, clean the pan with damp paper towel, using tongs. This way you will avoid burning the sugar that remains in the pan from the previous batch.



  1. Sweet pancakes are not a Malaysian breakfast staple either, but if they looked this adorable, we may start to eat them all the time too! Love this idea, Renata. Not such a good idea to read this first thing in the morning though ;-)

  2. I love pancakes! I love cinnamon rolls! This is genius. :)

  3. That is a brilliant idea, such a fantastic effect. I am more of a savoury breakfast person, but do like a Canadian breakfast which has both pancakes and bacon :)

  4. OK, for the stupid American :).....what is the measurement for the butter? 60 grams? That doesn't look like a 0. I want to try these, but want to be sure I do it correctly.

    1. Yes, that's right, 60 grams ( about 4 tbsp). Hope you like the result as much as I did. I'd love to know how it turns out. Thanks :)

  5. OMG that is so cool. Wow pancakes and cinnamon rolls in one? Very dangerous to have too many around and yummy. Thank you for your kind words.

  6. I tried to made that but I didn't wait for the butter to get softened. And when the time of spread the mixture came, it turn out really bad. Unlucky, I had to throw all directly to the trash.

  7. Made them this morning for the kiddos....loved them! Can't believe i haven't seen these out at any diner in my life! Great job!!!!!

  8. Try cinnamon roll waffles!
    Get the instant (Poppin Fresh) cinnamon rolls and pop them in your waffle iron instead of the oven.
    The kids will go crazy for cinnamon roll waffles, heck I lose my mind over them!

  9. Wow, those look great! So original. I thought it would be one of those squished cinnamon rolls (like the ones made on waffle irons), but these are way easier if you don't have premade rolls. I'll have to try them soon :)

  10. How many pancakes do these make?
