Cinnamon, Brown Sugar Pancakes

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by LoriLamb

These delicious Saturday morning treat are our kid's favorite. Fresh pancakes, hot off the griddle, topped with my buttery brown sugar cinnamon topping and served with cold milk. Great breakfasts are one good way I've found to keep my teenagers home!

The topping was pretty good, but be prepared for very sugary pancakes! I had a lot of topping/spread left over; you might be fine just making half of what it calls for. Overall, we liked them and they had a cinnamon-roll taste, which was delicious! Next time though, we might just make these for dessert instead of breakfast.
