I keep making these pancakes. Despite the plethora of pancake varieties still to be discovered and made, I cannot seem to get beyond these: Snickerdoodle Pancakes. And by golly, you might not be able to stop either.
This is more of a technique than a recipe, though there will be one at the bottom. You can use a homemade recipe or a pancake mix. They can be gluten free or full on wheat flour. It’s what you do with them at the end that gives you the Snickerdoodle experience.
Regardless of your pancake, you must make a 10 inch skillet sized pancake. The small, normal sized pancakes seal up and are drier than what you want here. So, after managing to flip the gargantuan pancake, dot it with butter and then pour on a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Let it all melt together.
I took it out of the pan here to give you a better look. Usually, I leave it in the pan and spread the butter and cinnamon mixture all the way to the edges. Then cut it into quarters and stack them. That way you are getting multiple layers of amazing buttery cinnamon and sugar. Really, no syrup is needed and if you use enough butter – because seriously, folks, if you are eating Snickerdoodles for breakfast, are you worrying about too much butter?- it isn’t dry at all.
For my family, I use full on regular granulated sugar. I made mine first with Truvia, but I had to cease using it because it affected my stomach. So I tried coconut palm sugar with delightful results. Like I said, it’s the technique, not the recipe that makes these pancakes so wonderful.
