food // cream cheese pancakesTags : food .
Most of our meals are prepared by the mister. But sweets and breakfast foods are my all time favorite thing to make. I love whipping up french toast, pancakes or eggs. And we all especially love eating breakfast for dinners, like these tasty cream cheese pancakes were highly enjoyed. And for all my gluten free friends out there, this special recipe is perfect for you! Happy eating! What's your favorite breakfast food?
CREAM CHEESE PANCAKES
Makes approx. 20+ half dollar size (3") pancakes
1 (8oz) package of cream cheese softened
4 eggs, separated
1/2 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
veggie oil for the griddle
1.) In medium bowl mix cream cheese, egg yolks, sugar, cinnamon & nutmeg until well blended.
Mixture may be slightly lumpy, this is ok. 2.) In another bowl, using an electric mixer, beat egg whites until stiff and forming peaks. I used my food processor, this seems to be much faster. 3.) Add egg white to cream cheese mixture, mixing well. This may look very soupy. 4.) Lightly oil griddle or frying pan and place on medium heat. Add small dollops to form 3" mini pancakes. Please note that because there is no flour, then the mixture is more soupy, which doesn't hold well with larger pancakes, so smaller ones work best. You may try larger ones but be warned that your pancake when flipping may break apart; they'll still taste fantastic though. Serve with syrup or powdered sugar. We feel they are already sweet enough and we eat them plain. Enjoy!
