Almost Famous Cheesecake Pancakes From IHOP

IMG_3164So while this isn’t the most healthy choice for breakfast it’s fantastic for a special occasion, and hey it’s summer after all so let loose. These pancakes are delicious!! You don’t need any additional syrup. I thought they where going to be too sweet, but after one bite I couldn’t stop there. I think the buttermilk really tones cuts the sweetness in them. Honestly I won’t be making these all the time, but they make a nice treat every once in a while.

1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 tablespoons seedless strawberry jam
11/4 cups all-purpose flour
11/4 cups buttermilk
1 large egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
2 cups chopped frozen cheesecake
Cooking spray
Butter, confectioners' sugar or whipped cream, for topping (optional)

Mix the strawberries, jam and 2 tablespoons warm water in a bowl; set aside. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.


Pulse the flour, buttermilk, egg, vegetable oil, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a blender until smooth.


Transfer to a bowl and stir in the cheesecake pieces, keeping them whole.


Coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Working in batches, pour about 1/4 cup batter into the skillet for each pancake.


Cook until bubbly on top, about 4 minutes, then flip and cook until the other side is golden brown, about 2 more minutes. Transfer the finished pancakes to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Serve the pancakes topped with the strawberry sauce; top with butter, confectioners' sugar or whipped cream, if desired.
