- Make your pancake batter by stirring together all pancake ingredients with a wooden spoon. Scoop a 1/3 to 1/2 cup portion onto the skillet.

Once the pancake is almost fully cooked on one side, snip off the end of the bag and add a swirl of cinnamon on top of the cooking pancake. Allow the cinnamon mixture to set for at least one minute before flipping and cooking full on the other side.
- Repeat for all pancakes. Meanwhile, whip together the cream cheese glaze. You can drizzle this over the pancakes with a spoon or with an additional piping bag - your choice.
