Sweet Cream Pancakes Recipe:
Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods to make. They require simple pantry ingredients and they are perfect for my large family. The great thing about pancakes is your can top them with many different toppings.
I tried Sweet Cream Pancakes and fell in love how sweet and creamy the pancakes were. I knew I had to make them at home for a change to our classic pancake recipe. To give these pancakes that sweet flavor, I added in heavy cream to my classic recipe.

Because of the heavy cream that is added, these are the most softest and fluffiest pancakes you will ever make. They melt in your mouth and full of flavor pancakes that can be topped with your favorite topping or eaten by itself.

How to Serve Sweet Cream Pancakes:
We like to serve sweet cream fluffy pancakes with traditional sides and topping. As soon as we are done cooking the pancakes, we place them on a platter. Then we serve with or favorite sides:
Additions to Sweet Cream Pancakes:
These pancakes are perfect on its own. But you can always change up the taste and add in your favorite ingredients. Here are some of our favorites:
- Chocolate Chips
- Zest of a Lemon
- Blueberries or Strawberries
If you are adding in chocolate chips or nuts, we recommend pouring about a little less of than a ¼ cup of batter to the griddle first. Then top with the chocolate and nuts. You may need to add a little more batter to the top.
Toppings are my favorite part of these pancakes. Host a pancake bar for a baby shower and have these different toppings set out. These pancakes are the perfect brunch item.
- Fruit – We love serving these pancakes with fresh fruit. Strawberries, blueberries and bananas are my favorites.
- Maple Syrup – We love the classic taste of a maple syrup. You have not purchased real maple syrup, I recommend serving it with these pancakes.
- Butter – These pancakes are perfect served with butter.
- Chocolate Spread – My kids love Nutella as a spread for their pancakes. So I always have that available for a topping.
- Powdered Sugar – Sprinkle the top with powdered with a side of fruit is one of my favorite ways to eat these delicious pancakes.
- Peanut Butter – My son loves peanut butter as a topping. It doesn’t matter if I make pancakes or waffles, peanut butter is his topping of choice.
Cooking Pancake Tips:
- Prepare Pan – Make sure to preheat skillet or griddle and melt butter on the skillet before adding pancake batter.
- Hot Skillet – Prior to adding the batter on the skillet, make sure it is hot. We like to wait until the butter is sizzling.
- Pouring Batter – When pouring the batter on the skillet it may not make a perfect circle. I usually let the batter spread naturally on the pan. It makes for the perfectly fluffy pancake.
- Ready to Flip – Once bubbles start appearing on the top of the pancake, then it is ready to flip. It usually takes about 2 minutes before it is ready to flip. It will depend on your skillet how long it takes.
- Golden Brown – Your pancake will be golden brown once it is finished cooking and ready to serve.
- Serving – I like to make all the pancake batter before serving. This way we can eat as a family. Place the finished pancakes on a platter until all the batter is made.
How to Store:
Leftover pancakes store great. Refrigerate them in an airtight container for up to 5-7 days. I like to make a batch at the beginning of the week as it makes it easy to eat and serve as my kids are getting ready for school.
How to Freeze:
Freezing pancakes is a perfect way to save time and money. These pancakes can be stored in freezer safe container and placed in the freezer. They will last about 3 months if stored properly.
