Churro Pancakes

These Churro Pancakes might be the easiest thing you can make for Cinco De Mayo tomorrow! Whip up a batch of your favorite pancakes (whether from a box or from scratch), then just butter each side of the pancake, and dip each side in a cinnamon-sugar mixture!  I love Krusteaz Whole Wheat Pancake Mix so that’s what I used…because you know me, I do things the easy way!!

The hot butter on the pancakes allows the cinnamon and sugar to seep into the pancakes a little…ooh it is so good!  These babies don’t need syrup or whip cream or any other fixins on top, they are plenty sweet!  As you can see I gave my pancakes a good, thick coat of cinnamon and sugar.  

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Churro Pancakes
1 3/4 cup Krusteaz Whole Wheat Pancake Mix
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Butter, soft
Mix sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl and set aside. 
Mix pancake mix and water until well combined but slightly lumpy.  Cook pancakes on a lightly greased hot griddle.  (or use your own pancake mix or recipe to make your favorite pancakes!)
Immediately spread butter on each side of the pancake, then dip each pancake into the cinnamon-sugar mixture coating each side well.
Enjoy while hot!!
