Strawberry pancakes with cream cheese glaze
I have a delicious and easy Strawberry Pancakes recipe for you to try this weekend. I think that it is safe to say that my family loves breakfast – from cinnamon biscuits to Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls and Cinnamon Roll waffles. However, we often have breakfast for dinner, because our mornings are so busy.
Another favorite is brunch. We love to enjoy brunch on the weekends and make the best memories lingering in the kitchen on Saturday mornings.
Ok, back to this delicious pancakes recipe. Strawberries are so delicious and a family favorite. The flavor the fruit gives these pancakes is delicious.
- Brown Sugar
- Baking Powder
- sliced Strawberries (or your can puree the strawberries)
Ingredient for Cream cheese Glaze:
- Cream Cheese
- Powdered Sugar
This glaze is so amazing and just the best! You will love how easy it is with only 4 ingredients.
How to make strawberry pancakes with cream cheese glaze
1. First, make the glaze by combining the ingredients together. Mix until well combined.
2. Put the glaze in a ziplock bag or piping back and place in he fridge until later.
3. Next, go ahead and heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat. I highly recommend using this griddle. It is what we have and we love it, especially since we make so many at once. You will save a lot of time if you have a large family and need to make a bunch.
4. Mix up the pancakes by whisking the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
5. Now, get a small mixing bowl and whisk together the egg, milk and vanilla. If you decided to puree the strawberries, mix those in now as well. If you opted to slice them, wait until later.
6. Finally, whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Make sure it is well combined and then stir in the melted butter.
7. It’s time to make pancakes! Pour ¼ cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake. I use a measuring scoop to make this quick and easy.
8. Once the batter is on he griddle, place several strawberry slices in each pancake. You can skip this step if you mixed in the pureed strawberries earlier.
9. Wait until bubbles form in the middle and flip. This normally takes about 3 minutes. Continue cooking the other side until golden brown for about another 2 minutes.
10. Now for my kids favorite part! Get the glaze from the fridge and drizzle all over the pancakes before serving.
