Cinnamon Swirl Slow Cooker Pancake Bake Recipe

It’s funny to use the words fast and slow to describe one thing. But, in this case it’s rings true!  This Cinnamon Swirl Pancake Bake can be made in about an hour in your slow cooker.  It’s basically pancake mixed baked up into a thin bread form. In my opinion, it sure beats sitting over the frying pan and forming pancakes all morning for breakfast. I’d much rather set and forget for a bit. While I am doing all of my other morning rituals, breakfast is cooking all the while. Sweet deal and makes the house smell fabulous too.

Slow Cooker Pancake Bake #Breakfast #Recipe

Last week I shared a 1 hour slow cooker bread recipe and decided to try something sweet, well, that’s how I ended up giving this pancake bake a try instead. So, I’ll still be playing around and giving some different ideas a try. You know I’ll share. I picked up this amazing apple bread from the grocery store last week, it was total heaven. If I can re-create something like that in the slow cooker, I will be ecstatic! So look out for my little slow cooker experiments 😉 My goal here? Shortcuts. Saving on time and save on money! Keep my family happy! Will keep you posted if it’s any good, that is!

Happy slow cooking!

Cinnamon Swirl Slow Cooker Pancake Bake Recipe


  • 1 Cup of Bisquick
  • 1/2 Cup of Milk (Skim works)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
  • Non-stick spray


  1. Blend Bisquick, milk and egg until there are no lumps. In a separate bowl evenly blend the sugar and cinnamon. Spray the bottom portion of your slow cooker generously with non-stick spray. Set on high. Pour your mixture into the bottom of the slow cooker. Then, sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture evenly over the top of the batter. Take the end of a spoon and swirl the cinnamon and sugar down into the batter. Cook for approximately 1 hour - 1 hour and 15 minutes. Check the center to with a fork, when none of the batter sticks, your breakfast is ready.

    I’m sure it smells great. After you’ve been married a couple of decades you’ll find Aunt Jemima makes a wonderful microwave pancake!

    I have bisquick complete which means I just add water. Do you think this recipe will work the same if I omit the eggs and milk? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    What size slow cooker do you use? I’ve got a 6 quart with two high settings (4 hrs. or 6 hrs.) so should I set it on the 4 hrs.?
    Have you tried making this with the slow cooker liners?

    • Dawn says

      Hi Heidi,

      I use a 6 qt slow cooker as well. I would set it on 4 and if needed, leave in up to 15 minutes more. I haven’t used slow cooker liners as of yet. Hope that helps! 😉

    Can the recipe be “multiplied”?
    Making pancakes for four or five is a lot more boring than making them for one – or even two!

    Thanks for your reply

      Hi Lorraine, I have tried to multiply it.. I think I would be cautious in trying that. You might risk the middle not cooking properly without burning the bottom and sides! Hope that helps!

    Just made this for breakfast. I love something I can throw together and it cook while I get started on my Saturday Morning chores! While it was cooking I did 2 loads of laundry and got the kitchen and bathroom cleaned, and the floors vacuumed. I’ve just had my first few bites and my tea…YUMMO!!! I DID have to tweak it a bit, as I had just run of of sugar last night after baking…so I used 1/3 white sugar and 2 tablespoons brown….swirled and well….YUMMO!! Thanks !!!

    • Dawn Lopez says

      Yum, that sounds like a delicious idea for tweaking! The brown sugar must make it taste even better! So glad you enjoyed it 😉
