Pancakes are the best treat for a tasty breakfast after a long week or even a fast dessert when you have almost uninvited guests.
There are so many variations you can make from scratch and besides burning them up when frying the pancakes, you cant actually go wrong with this fast dessert.
I love to play around with ingredients I have home and almost every time I end up making an interpreted recipe because I added different other ingredients that I thought might work well, and they actually end up really tasty.
The latest try in making pancakes from scratch was by following this tasty recipe of cheesecake pancakes because I had some extra cheese at home and in the end who doesn’t love cheesecake, right? Speaking of cheesecakes… Did you try my recipe? It features some sour cherries on top, so yummy!
Back to our pancakes made from scratch that are so fast, delicious and very easy to make.
Here’s what you need to get things started:
- 2 cups unbleached, all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 6 oz cream cheese, softened
Vanilla yogurt sauce
For the white cream sauce I used Greek yogurt, a bit of sugar and vanilla extract
The fruity berry sauce was made of frozen berries, water and sugar brought to a boil and added a bit of agar-agar to make it more jelly like.
The vanilla ice cream recipe can be found in my previous post. Just swap the black chocolate with white chocolate.
How to make pancakes from scratch
Basic way of mixing the ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl.
The milk and eggs need to be whisked a bit with sugar while slowly adding the cream cheese to the mix. After they are mixed well, add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix again really well.
Get a non-stick skillet and grease it just a bit with some spray cooking oil, I used coconut. Add the mixture and form the round pancakes. Fry until golden and serve while still hot with the white sauce, the berry sauce and that delicious vanilla icecream.
They are perfect!
And here is another tip from my part. I use this fluffy pancake recipe( not necessarily with cheese) for making quick cakes. If I do not have the time to bake some cake batter, I make some fluffy pancakes that I layer one on top of each other, fill with some delicious cream, cover it up and no one will ever know I was lazy.
