3. Roll on

This is what happens when a sweet cinnamon roll and a fluffy pancake have a love child. Say hello to sugary bliss  plus it's much easier and faster than making a cinnamon roll from scratch. Bonus. Just put a dollop of buttermilk pancake batter into a hot pan, add a swirl of cinnamon filling, and top with icing once cooked.
