Miso Maple Bacon Pancake Pinwheels

A twist on John's famous pancakes that kids will LOVE to help make!

Every Sunday, John makes pancakes for the kids. (They love them so much that we even made a chocolate bar with pieces of pancakes in them!) With Father's Day almost here, we're giving John's pancakes a special twist that Toons and Miles LOVE to make. They are so fun for kids to help with because you take pancakes (thinner than you'd normally make them, FYI!) and fill them with cream cheese, bacon, and strawberries. It's a sweet, savory, crunchy, and creamy flavor explosion. A little bit of miso paste helps balance out the filling so it isn't too sweet when you drizzle lots of maple syrup on top.

For the pancakes:

  • 1

    cup flour

  • 3

    tablespoons sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • ½

    teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1

    ¼ cups buttermilk, shaken

  • 1

    egg

  • ¼

    cup melted butter, slightly cooled

  • teaspoon white vinegar

For the filling and serving:

  • ½

    brick (4 ounces) of cream cheese, softened

  • 4

    teaspoons maple syrup, plus more for drizzling

  • 1

    ½ teaspoons white miso paste

  • teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 4

    slices cooked bacon

  • 7

    strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
