Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes Recipe

Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes

The month of love is upon us! For those of you who aren’t into the sappy, romantic stuff… don’t worry. It’s the shortest month of the year so it’ll be over before you know it. 😋 But for those of you who like to go all out, I’ve got the perfect recipe to start your Valentine’s Day morning off right: Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes!


INGREDIENTS NEEDED

Most of the ingredients needed for these strawberry cheesecake pancakes are pretty basic. You’ve got your flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, milk, egg, and vegetable oil. The only difference from traditional pancakes is that you’ll be adding REAL cheesecake pieces to the batter. Basically, buy yourself a ready-made cheesecake, freeze it the night before and then chop it up into bite sized pieces when you’re ready to make the batter. You’ll only need about 2 cups of chopped cheesecake, so whatever cheesecake you have leftover you can enjoy for dessert. 😋

CHEESECAKE OPTIONS

If you don’t want to buy a whole cheesecake, you can buy a single serve slice at the grocery store for a lot cheaper. OR you can do what I did and buy the Jell-O No Bake Cheesecake Mix. This will allow you to make your own cheesecake in less than five minutes for just $3!! I’ll usually make the cheesecake the night before I plan on making the pancakes. Then place it in the freezer and have a perfectly frozen cheesecake in the morning to work with.
