Cream Cheese Pancakes – hmmmm
Quick question first. Do you prefer me trying out the recipes before I post them? I’m so A.D.D., it takes me a while to remember to buy ingredients for many of these recipes. So, please let me know which you prefer: me trying the recipes before posting or posting the recipes, then trying them out later. I have quite a few that I want to post and I’m curious which you prefer.
UPDATE: Well, I ate one with a Tablespoon of peanut butter (we buy Kirkland Natural Peanut Butter) and no jitters. So, it was all in my head last night. I WILL be making these again if/when I want something akin to a sandwich wrap (just without the cinnamon).
Well, I made this recipe last night. As I think I’ve said before, I typically make a recipe the first time just as it’s written (then, if I like it, I play with it later). After the first one was made (and these cook just like pancakes. Wait for the bubbles, then flip over), I tasted it. The texture wasn’t bad, they are very thin, and they were just “there”. I slathered butter on the top and tasted again. O.k. A little better. Then, I added vanilla extract into the rest of the batter. Much, MUCH better! Oh, by the way, I quadrupled the recipe because I didn’t want to use only part of the cream cheese package.
So, I piled a stack of these onto my plate, fried an egg and put that on top and had a few slices of bacon on the side. Now, here’s the strange part. I’ve never been a big syrup person. I always just put a little for taste but never drowned my plate with the stuff. By the time I got done eating, I was literally shaking because I wanted maple syrup so bad! I’m not sure if it’s because of the way I served these or what but I haven’t had a craving that strong in quite a while!
I will try one more this morning (with peanut butter or something) to see if I get that huge craving again. If I do, I won’t be making these again. If I don’t, I’ll try to re-think how I serve these (Hmmm … I wonder if it’s the cinnamon). Anyway, these were close enough to pancakes that if you must have some, make these (but add vanilla extract)!
2 oz cream cheese
1 packet stevia (or any) sweetener
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
