Put away the maple syrup. Next time you whip up pancakes or French toast, try something new with this clone that makes your stacks taste like freshly baked cinnamon rolls. Spread the cinnamon sauce on each pancake or on each slice of cinnamon toast as you stack 'em up. Then drizzle the delicious cream cheese icing over the top. As for the pancakes, we've got some great clone recipes here on the site: IHOP Pancakes, IHOP Country Griddle Cakes, and IHOP Harvest Grain 'N Nut Pancakes. And here's a simple clone for Denny's Fabulous French Toast. This mouth-watering new product from America's favorite pancake chain is a "limited-time-only" offering, but a fabulous home clone is yours whenever you crave it.

    • Instructions

      1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, 2 tablespoons half-and-half, cinnamon, salt, and cloves and cook while stirring constantly until the mixture comes to a simmer. Immediately remove from heat, add remaining tablespoon of half-and-half and stir in the flour. 

      2. Combine the ingredients for cream cheese icing in a medium bowl. Beat on low speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon the icing into a squirt bottle. 

      3. To assemble your dish, spread about a tablespoon of cinnamon sauce on top of each pancake, or on each slice of French toast as you stack them. A typical serving at the restaurant is two pancakes or two slices of French toast. Drizzle cream cheese icing over the top, and finish off your stack with a dollop of whipped cream. 

      Makes enough for at least 4 servings.

My daughter and I LOVE this recipe! The second time we made it, though, we skipped the flour and the last tablespoon of half & half. It really doesn't need it to thicken up. Just delicious, Todd! Keep up the great work!

I made this recipe for my husband last night because he had a craving for cinnamon rolls, but I just didn't have the time. He actually used the word "phenomenal". Thanks Todd...another fabulous recipe :-)
