Transform leftover pancakes into these adorable pan-'cake' pops. Sweetened with cream cheese frosting and coated with a sticky cinnamon-maple glaze, this recipe takes pancakes from breakfast to dessert in no time. If you like more texture in the truffle, don't pulse the pancakes up too fine. These easy treats are a fun project for kids and taste just like an indulgent bite of Saturday breakfast.

Stages of cooking

  1. Add pancakes, torn into quarters, into a food processor and pulse until fine. Transfer to a large mixing bowl, then combine with cream cheese frosting and 1 tablespoon maple syrup until consistent.
  2. Use a cookie scoop to portion out 1 inch balls of the pancake dough. Arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, and cinnamon until smooth. Add more milk if the mixture is too thick.
  4. Dip the tip of one lollipop stick into the glaze, then insert it about halfway into the center of the ball. Carefully dip the pancake ball into the powdered sugar glaze, using a spoon to help drizzle the glaze around the sides and the bottom.
  5. Skewer the bottom of the sticks into a styrofoam base so the cake pops stand upright as you work, allowing any excess glaze to drip off. Stick a piece of bacon onto the top. Annie Campbell
