My craving for pancakes; got me experimenting with a few pancake recipe ideas & ingredients! My motive was to create the perfect golden brown, mildly sweet, fluffy pancakes to fit into my Keto meal plan.
I drew inspiration from Melissa Sevigny’s- “Cream Cheese and Egg Pancake” recipe. The replica of the recipe seemed to have an eggy flavor and crepe-like texture. Therefore, for my ketones weight loss pancake recipe, I gave it my twist and infused some additional ingredients. Finally, the result was more like classic pancakes.
Now, there are multiple reasons for the popularity of this pancake recipe:-
It’s super easy to make (just 2 minutes of blending)
It is a quick mess-free recipe (only takes 4-6 minutes in the pan)
This breakfast pastry is superbly delicious
The same pancake batter can be used to make delectable waffles by simply adding some melted butter/blueberry/low-carb chocolate chips
For the Batter you’ll need:
4 ounces of cream cheese (softened)
1 TBS sugar substitute (or as per taste)
2 tsp vanilla extract (or sugar-free vanilla syrup)
1/2 tsp maple extract (optional)
A pinch of cinnamon powder (optional)
4 TBSs coconut flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Almond milk (or half and half) (use as per requirement)
For pancakes you’ll need:
1/2 tsp extra baking powder
For waffles you’ll need:
1 TBS melted butter (optional, yet suggested)
Step 1: In a mixer/blending machine add cream cheese, eggs, sugar substitute, vanilla, maple extract, & cinnamon powder. Mix well. When making waffles add melted butter for enhanced flavor.
Step 2: To the mixture, add coconut flour & baking powder. Mix again till all the ingredients come together to form a runny batter!
NOTE: If the batter is left to rest for some minutes it tends to thicken. On such occasions, you ought to add some cream, almond milk or half & half to thin out the batter.
Step 1: Place a non-stick pan on the stove over medium flame and grease it lightly. Using a ladle pour the batter in the center on the pan and turn the pan gently to form 4-6 inches diameter circles.
(If using electric girdle adjust the temperature to 300F)
Step 2: Once you notice the edges have started to crisp-up and bubbles are visible on the surface, it’s time to flip the pancake.
Step 3: Let it cook until it turns a gorgeous golden brownish, about 2-3 minutes!
Step 1: Start with preheating the waffle iron.
Step 2: our the batter on it. Cook till it becomes golden brownish, for about 5-7 minutes.
Serve the freshly cooked waffles with sugar-free syrup, marmalade, fruit jam, or butter.
