Cinnamon Creme Brulee Pancakes with Vanilla Glaze

anniemade // Easy Cinnamon Creme Brulee Pancakes Recipe Some weekends, I crave a crazy amount of sugar. We have a go to brunch place we love for crazy sugar pancakes (BeaBea's for those in LA), but if you can't get to BeaBea's, here's a cinnamon treat that should probably only be eaten once in a blue moon. But when the time comes, savor the sugar goodness for the ultimate brunch treat.

Cinnamon Creme Brulee Pancakes with Vanilla Glaze


The base

  • Your favorite basic pancake batter recipe & ingredients, mixed up and ready to go (here are regular and Gluten-free ones)

The swirly filling (per 8 medium sized pancakes)

  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 1 tea vanilla extract

The vanilla glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tea vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp of milk
  • 1 tbsp of butter


  1. Prepare your go-to basic pancake batter as normal.
  2. In a measuring cup, melt your butter for the swirly filling then add the remaining filling ingredients, stirring to incorporate.
  3. Heat your skillet and when ready, pour your batter out for your first pancake.
  4. Quickly, using a fork or a baster drizzle the swirly filling over the pancake batter.
  5. Flip your pancake and finish cooking. Repeat until all your pancakes are ready. The brown sugar will make the pancakes a bit crystalized and give them a fun texture alongside their traditional fluffiness.
  6. In another bowl or measuring cup, melt the butter for the glaze. Add remaining ingredients and stir until thoroughly incorporated. Add milk slowly (just a bit will do you) to create a thin glaze to pour over your hot pancakes.

Caution: this recipe is not on any diet, nor should it be. Probably eating a handful of gummi bears would be healthier but that said, enjoy the cinnamony goodness!
