International Pancake Day!
February 21st this year was International Pancake Day. I always like to have a little fun with food holidays, so we planned a pancake dinner. I tried quite a few different pancake recipes, including granola pancakes, blueberry, raspberry, caramel, chocolate chip, lemon poppyseed, cream cheese and regular buttermilk. My favorite was the cream cheese recipe. They tasted heavenly with Strawberries and whipping cream or that heavenly caramel syrup. I always use the frozen strawberries with sugar (thawed) for my strawberry topping. It is quick, easy and delicious.
Obviously, this isn’t the healthiest meal, however, for a once a year dinner, it tasted pretty heavenly.
Here is that Cream Cheese Pancake recipe!
1 pkg. (8oz) cream cheese
2 cups Bisquick mix
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk
Mix together bisquick, graham cracker crumbs, sugar, milk and eggs until blended. Slice cream cheese into bite size pieces and stir into the batter. You may need to add more milk if it is too thick. Pour batter onto your hot griddle and cook until it is ready to flip. Turn and finish cooking. Top with the toppings of your choice.
