My love for pancakes //

When two people tell you that these are the best pancakes they have ever eaten, then you know that they are good. These pancakes are exactly what you want when you are craving a cinnamon bun but do not have the time to make them. These are sweet, cinnamony and fluffy. To make something delicious over the top, instead of maple syrup (which is also delicious), top them with cinnamon bun icing. Nothing short of amazing.
