Hi there, Jess in the Rada kitchen, thanks for joining me. Today I’m going to share a recipe for you that I developed for my husband. These are my raisin cinnamon roll pancakes and we’re going to stuff them with cream cheese frosting.

So with my Rada Handi-Stir I am mixing together flour, baking powder, salt, milk, egg, and a little bit of coconut oil. To my batter I’m going to add some raisins that I have rehydrated by adding a tablespoon of water and microwaving them for started to get nice, plump, and juicy. So into my batter, and I’m going to fold this in using my Rada Mixing Spatula.

Here I have some butter that I’ve melted. Be sure not to boil this. To that I’m going to add my brown sugar. And a generous pour of cinnamon. And give that a stir. We are just going to pour the mixture into a plastic baggie that we will clip the end off and use to pipe the sauce onto our pancake.

So now we are ready to make our cream cheese frosting that is going to be stacked in our layers of pancakes. To my cream cheese I add powdered sugar and whipping cream. With my electric mixture we bring it all together.

Here we have our whipped cream cheese frosting. We’re going to stick this in our fridge and then I’m going to make these pancakes on our griddle. I’m going to take about a third of our pancake mixture and just spoon that right on. We are looking for our pancakes to start to bubble and then we will add a swirl of that cinnamon and butter mixture. Now I’m ready to pipe on swirls. You want to mix up the bag before you do it. On we go and our pancakes have just started to bubble. Into a swirl. And onto our next.

I’ll reload my bag up here. You could of course incorporate this right into the batter. Then we’ll let those cook. With our Rada Non-Scratch Spatula we’ll flip these. There we go. Perfect. We’re ready to start stacking our pancakes. On top of the first pancake a big heaping layer of that delicious whipped cream cheese frosting. Add my next pancake. And repeat. We’ll top it with our prettiest pancake. And then top that off with real maple syrup.

So here I have our cinnamon roll pancakes stuffed with whipped cream frosting and topped with more delicious raisins. Thanks so much for joining me today. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and visit our website at
