    Instructions
    Prepare the Pancake Batter:
    1. If making boxed pancake mix, follow instructions on the back of the box. If making pancake batter from scratch, Melt the butter in microwave for 30 seconds. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add milk, butter, egg and vanilla, stirring to combine. Set aside.
    Prepare the Cinnamon Swirl:
    1. In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Spoon into piping or zippered bag. (Swirl should not be runny, but have structure.)
    Prepare the Cream Cheese Drizzle:
    1. In a bowl, mix together butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Spoon into piping or zippered bag.
    Assemble and Cook:
    1. Next, Heat a large, nonstick skillet or griddle. Coat with cooking spray. Make pancake with 1/3 cup batter, spreading it out to form a circle. Reduce heat to medium low. Snip a small opening in the piping bag. When the pancake begins to form bubbles, make a pinwheel with the cinnamon drizzle, starting at the center of the pancake. Cook the pancake 2 to 3 minutes. (Cinnamon mixture will bubble up around the edges of the pancake.) Carefully flip pancake over and cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Repeat with remaining pancake mix. Serve with maple syrup or make a pinwheel on top of pancake stack with cream cheese glaze.
