Snickerdoodle Pancakes are reminiscent of my favorite Christmas Cookie, but in breakfast form! It’s always great to start out the day on a sweet note, isn’t it?

Snickerdoodle Pancakes

We love pancakes for weekend breakfasts and I find myself getting out the griddle every weekend,  but I am so excited that I can now make a complete breakfast on our Cuisinart 360 Griddle Cooking Center!

With spring and summer entertaining right around the corner, it is so fun to invite people over for a breakfast on the patio! Growing up, my Dad would hold a “breakfast on the verandah” event and everyone would congregate on our patio and my dad would cook everything outside and serve us there! It was so fun and such a different way to entertain. The Cuisinart Griddle is perfect for outdoor entertaining and you can do everything from grill, griddle, steam, smoke, and pretty much anything you would do on a traditional stove top!

How to season your 360 Griddle Cooking Center

Just like with a cast iron skillet, seasoning your griddle is very important. A properly seasoned griddle will ensure optimal performance and longevity of your griddle and will help create a non-stick surface for cooking. It is definitely worth the effort!

The griddle arrives slightly seasoned but a little more work is required straight out of the box. You want to start with some soapy water and a paper towel to wash off the shipping oil. Dry the surface well. Next you want to select your oil. Flaxseed oil gives great results but you can also use EVOO, vegetable oil, or soy oil.

You want to use a clean towel to rub a thin layer of oil all over the surface. Once coated, turn your griddle on high. The oil will eventually smoke, which is good. Let is smoke for about 15-20 minutes. Let the surface cool and then repeat the above process 2-3 times until you get a smooth black surface on the griddle.

Now that you are seasoned you can cook! I like cooking my pancakes, bacon, and sausage all on the griddle at the same time! This pancake recipe is really easy and you have two choices when preparing. If you are short on time, use your favorite pancake mix and add in the brown sugar and cinnamon. If you have a couple extra minutes, I recommend using the pancake recipe below! It is worth the extra couple minutes!

  1. These pancakes sound delicious! And the griddle is a really neat looking tool. I cannot ever get pancakes to cook properly when I try to make them in a skillet and I’ve been thinking it’s time to get a griddle! I need to look into this one!

    1. This one is great Emily, especially if you love to entertain outdoors!

  2. These pancakes are my favorites before I’ve even tried the recipe – I LOVE snickerdoodles! I’m equally as smitten with the griddle.. what a great idea! I’ll definitely be checking both the recipe and the griddle out.
