My Thoughts: I’m not a big cook, but I try my best to and I love trying new things when I’m in the mood too cook.  McCormick is a name I’ve always known and my cabinets have several McCormick spices in them but I don’t always know exactly how to use them so I’m thankful for their website with such great recipes.  I received a fun box of some McCormick spices to help make some spring time brunch items.

We made some really yummy cinnamon pancakes that my kids absolutely LOVED!!!  I never would of thought to put cinnamon in my pancakes.  I always add a little vanilla extract but never cinnamon.  It gave it such a nice flavor and the kids really enjoyed it.  Here is the recipe:

2 cups pancake mix
1 teaspoon McCormick® Cinnamon, Ground
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract

1. Stir pancake mix and cinnamon in large bowl until well blended. Stir in eggs, milk, oil and vanilla just until blended.

2. Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto preheated lightly greased griddle or skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown, turning when pancakes begin to bubble. Serve pancakes with Spiced Syrup (recipe follows), if desired.

Spiced Syrup: Mix 1 cup pancake syrup, 1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract and 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie Spice in microwavable bowl or measuring cup. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until warm, stirring once.
