REMEMBER: place your finger over the nozzle on the squeeze bottle and shake it well before squeezing it out on top of the pancakes. Over time the butter will separate out and it needs to be well-incorporated for it to flow nicely.

ALSO: you can avoid some of the sticky mess by LAYERING the batter. POUR a thin layer of better for your pancakes. SWIRL the cinnamon filling on top. POUR some more pancake batter on top. This will leave the cinnamon swirl inside your pancake and will keep it from oozing all over your pan. It tastes just as good!
