If you’ve ever been the type to choose waffles over pancakes… that changes today. These Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes made with Krusteaz Mix are unbelievable and will change the way you prepare boxed pancake mix from now on.
Piping The Swirl
The classic cinnamon bun swirl effect that we get with each of these pancakes is debatably the most enticing part. If you aren’t quite experienced in working with piping bags, don’t worry. You can allow the cinnamon sugar filling to set for a bit before piping onto the pancakes.
This will give the melted butter in the mixture enough time to cool down and even solidify a bit so that the mixture is not extremely runny as you go to pipe it onto the pancake. Having a thicker mixture will give you more control over your piping.
I found it best to not squeeze the piping bag, but instead to let gravity do its thang. The cinnamon sugar mixture will naturally, slowly begin to fall out of the piping bag when held over the pancake. Instead of focussing on squeezing it out, draw your attention to the direction in which you’re piping and complete the swirl in nice even spaces.
I am so honored to be able to work with Krusteaz to help bring you all this delicious recipe but if I were to be brutally honest…Krusteaz is seriously my favorite brand of pancake mix on the market. You only need to add water, the texture is so much fluffier and melt-in-your-mouth than other brands, and the buttermilk flavor is unmatched. Even if I didn’t have the privilege of working with them, I’d still rant on about how superior their product is versus other store bought brands.Yum
