Ingredients

For The Pancakes

  • 1 flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal crushed
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • scant 1/4 cup maple syrup

For The Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract optional

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry pancake ingredients- the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk together until evenly combined.
  • Add the crushed cereal too the mix, and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • To a large mixing bowl, add the milk, melted butter, egg, and vanilla. Whisk together to combine.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture in to the wet ingredients, stirring in after each addition. Continue, just until all of the flour's incorporated without over-mixing.
  • Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Once hot, add 1/4 cup of the pancake batter to it. Cook the pancake for about 2 minutes, flipping and cooking the other side for an additional 1-2 minutes- or until both sides are a nice golden brown and the pancake has puffed.
  • Remove the finished pancake to a waiting plate, and repeat until all the batter's used.

To Make The Glaze

  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk all of the glaze ingredients together until smooth.
  • Stack several pancakes, and pour some glaze over them just before serving.

Notes

If your glaze hardens before you're ready to serve, simply add in a tiny bit more milk and whisk again to recombine.
Pancakes can be topped with extra crushed/crumbled cereal, if desired.
Want an even sweeter finish? Substitute maple syrup for the vanilla extract in the glaze and add a sprinkle of cinnamon too.
