Blueberry Cheesecake Pancakes


This is BREAKFAST...and who wouldn't love biting into a fork full of this divine goodness for the first meal of the day? Its one of those yummy foods that you wake up in the night craving...so its a good thing that its an easy recipe and you can whip it up first thing in the morning. Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does.

Blueberry Cheesecake Pancakes
2 c. flour
1 c. graham cracker crumbs
4 T. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
4 eggs
2 1/2 c. buttermilk
1 cube butter, melted
2 c. frozen or fresh blueberries

maple syrup
additional berries for garnish (optional)

In a large bowl combine all dry ingredient. Mix together. Add eggs, buttermilk and melted butter to dry ingredients. Stir until all dry ingredient is moistened. Fold in blueberries (if using frozen berries, don't thaw). Pour batter by 1/2 cupfuls onto a hot, greased griddle. Turn over when the top of the pancake bubbles. Cook until golden brown. Cool pancakes slightly (I put mine in the fridge to speed up the process). When pancakes are cooled spread Cheesecake filling (recipe below) in between layers of pancakes, as well as on top (refer to picture)...continue until you have the desired amount of pancakes that you choose to eat (heck...you can make an entire stack if you want). Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top and garnish with THAWED blueberries and maple syrup if desired.
*Some of my family topped theirs with maple syrup, some chose not to...it was extremely tasty either way!!!

Cheesecake Filling:

1 8oz cream cheese, softened
1 8oz whipped topping
1 c. powdered sugar

Combine all ingredient together and mix with an electric mixer until its completely blended and lump free.
