THE "Cinnamoncake"

I think these are the most delicious pancakes I have made in a long time! Thanks to the recipe by the SORTED guysA cross between a Cinnamon scroll + Pancake = Cinnamoncake! It's quick and easy and the pancakes were really light and fluffy due to the buttermilk. If you don't have any buttermilk you can MAKE YOUR OWN! Yes!! Just add 1/2 tbs of white vinegar or lemon juice to the 150ml of milk and let it stand for 5 minutes.... then TA DA~~ just like magic it turns into buttermilk ^__^ 

Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes
Recipe adapted from SORTED food

75g salted butter
75g dark brown sugar 
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
150ml buttermilk (or 1/2 tbs white vinegar + 150ml milk)
pinch of salt
knob of butter to cook

1. In a small bowl, beat butter, sugar and cinnamon together till smooth and lump free. Transfer mix to piping bag/sandwich bag and set aside.
2. Mix flour and baking powder in separate bowl. Crack in the eggs and stir to mix. Keep whisking while you slowly add the buttermilk. Add pinch of salt and mix until smooth batter.
3. Heat large, non-stick frying pan to medium heat. Rub with butter. Spoon heaped tablespoon of pancake mixture into pan and cook for 30 seconds. Pipe a thin line of spiral on top of raw batter and leave for another 30 seconds.
4. Flip pancake over quickly and cook for another 30 seconds. Transfer cooked pancake to plate. Wipe pan clean to get rid of any burnt sugar and repeat process to cook the rest of pancakes.

My pancakes didn't exactly look like theirs because I didn't have DARK brown sugar, hence the piping mixture is quite light.. and I also forgot to wipe the pan clean so there was a bit of caramelisation happening.. :/ but all in all... yummy fluffy pancakes =D and addictive!!!
yum yum yum :D
Anyways it's a public holiday todayyy~~~ so for those in Victoria.. enjoy it :D maybe make some pancakes... or bake some cookies or bread!! or go out and have some brunch =) such a lovely day~~~ as for me! Gonna do some BAKING!! YAY!!!
