cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons
butter, melted - divided
confectioners' sugar for dusting
lemon, cut into wedges
I rate this 5 stars because of its uniqueness as I have never made pancakes using cream cheese. I used my hand mixer to blend the ingredients. I misread the instructions and added fresh squeezed lemon juice into the actual batter and as a result, the cream cheese batter had a nice lemon zing to it very much like lemon cheesecake. I made these into silver-dollar sized pancakes and the only problem I had with using butter on the griddle was they browned really quickly around the outer edges. I did not dust with confectioner's sugar instead I added 3 teaspoons of granulated sugar to the batter. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will defintely make again to serve at brunch.
The first time I made these they were odd, like fried cream cheese. I thought I did something wrong but I read the recipe over and over and didn't see any error on my part. We ended up throwing them out. I tried making them a second time and they came out REALLY GOOD! This is what I did for 2 servings: Whipped a batter of 4 oz softened cream cheese, 1/2 CUP FLOUR, 1 teaspoon BAKING POWDER, 2 teaspoons confectioners sugar, , TWO EGGS, 2 teaspoons softened butter, the juice of 1 lemon, 2 teaspoons fine fresh lemon zest, and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract. They had more of a pancake consistency and the flavor was way better too!
I really enjoyed these. I thought they were light and tasted delectable. I tried as recipe calls and adding some zest as reviewer suggested. Adding zest changed the flavor only somewhat. Silver dollar size from googling is 1.75" or approx. a good teaspoon. I had griddle at 325 degrees and thought it was appropriate. I am going to make lots of these for Easter Sunrise Service Potluck Breakfast.
Served with lemon curd and whipped cream.....delicious! I doubled the amount of flour and lemon juice, and added 2 teaspoons of lemon zest.
Made this for Recipe Group and I have to say that these were not my favorite...hubby didn't like them at all and I felt they lacked majorly in the flavor department. I think these would benefit from having some lemon zest and juice added to them and not just some juice squirted on top. I had no problem w/ the cream cheese flavor (I LOVE cream cheese), but these hardly even tasted like that. These fell very flat for us...I did end up topping them w/ 'Microwave Lemon Curd', which I used a mix of lemons and limes, and that, along w/ some whipped cream livened these up for me (hubby still wasn't a fan). I most likely will not be make these again, sorry, but they were interesting enough to try.
These were pretty good. The pancake itself could use some fine lemon zest or some lemon juice. The squeeze of lemon on top is essential. I don't think these would hold very well and are best eaten hot off the griddle. Next time I think I would thin the batter a bit with lemon juice - add a little bit a zest. Thanks for a different and interesting recipe.
Made these for RECIPE GROUP was sadly disappointed. Made and served them exactly as directed, they don't taste very cheesecake-y, and since there's no leavener they don't rise. Won't be making these again.
The texture of these pancakes was not to my liking as it was scrambled egg-ish. Tasteless even with the lemon. The name implies cheesecake. The taste, not so much. The batter was difficult for me to work with. Sorry didn't like this pancake recipe.
