I thought I would start off my blog with an introduction to who I am.
My name is Sara and I’m a 17 year old high school student. My school is a “career and technical academy” which is a fancy term for “we take classes that have to do with our future professions”. I am in the Culinary program at my school and have found baking to be a great passion of mine along with singing and playing piano.
I love baking, cooking, singing, playing piano, trying new work outs, and doing as many crafts and DIYs as I can. Most of my inspiration comes from Pinterest and other blogs (so I will be sure to give credit), however, I also love coming up with my own ideas.
Since I love cooking, I decided to write my first tutorial on some cinnamon roll pancakes I found on Pinterest. This recipe comes from www.recipesnobs.com and it is so delicious. Like, amazing. Really.
Unfortunately, they included a lot of trial and error for me, so mine are not near as pretty as hers, but they taste just as good.
Also, please excuse my pictures. I’m not a photographer by any means, plus this is the lighting I had to work with:
Don’t be fooled. The camera made it look weak. Plus, I have a dark kitchen. Plus I live in Vegas. We don’t have this kind of weather often.
Anyways, here’s how to make these awesome pancakes:
*Please note that I halved the recipe, which fed two people.
Cinnamon Roll Filling:
2 tbs. melted butter
3 tbs. light brown sugar, packed
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Cream Cheese Drizzle:
2 tbs. butter
2 tbs. cream cheese (I would use more however next time. For more cream cheese flavor)
6 tbs. powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten lightly
1/2 tbs. vegetable oil
To make the filling:
Melt butter over stove top.
Add cream cheese to melt. Keep it on low heat to melt but not burn!
Sift in sugar. Add vanilla.
It will look like this.
Mix dry ingredients.
And egg. Oops, forgot to slightly beat that…
Make pancakes about 1/4 cup full. When they start bubbling, you will add the cinnamon by swirling it (or dripping it if your is too thick like mine was). Then you will flip them and cook them for another minute or two or until it’s no longer runny!
Cover them with the drizzle! Mine was a little thick, but nevertheless amazing. Mine also didn’t turn out as pretty as www.recipesnobs.com ‘s did, but they still tasted awesome, especially with chai tea and pouring rain on the back porch!
I hope you liked my first post. I will definitely try to post at least once a week to give you more projects, recipes, workouts, and more!
