Fluffy Cream Cheese Blueberry Pancakes

School is in a full session for over two months now, so these delicious and Fluffy Cream Cheese Blueberry Pancakes make an appearance on our table quite often.

We are almost at the Fall break, but temperatures are not getting any better. We are still in the ’90s and that’s really not good. You see, I am a big fan of comfort food, cooler weather, autumn, so these summer temperatures are not fun to me at all.

Fluffy Cream Cheese Blueberry Pancakes

Anyhow, my boys always loved a good hot breakfast before school. Most of the time, I would prep ahead so they could have a quick meal in no time. Sometimes, I also make waffles which we really love.

To make these yummy pancakes you really do not need to be a rocket scientist. Just a bit of time and they are done quickly. You may add any other berries as well, or chocolate chips.

Fluffy Cream Cheese Blueberry Pancakes

However, during summertime, I get the best berries just like these blueberries and freeze them so I could make this all year round.

Blueberries, especially frozen wild blueberries produce such a pretty color and they are amazing for us. Do you like organic wild blueberries? You can get them frozen in the grocery store and they are an absolute delight.

You guys going to love these scrumptious pancakes because my family and I just adore them for breakfast, brunch or a quick snack.

Fluffy Cream Cheese Blueberry Pancakes

Fluffy Cream Cheese Blueberry Pancakes

Yield: Serves 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Delicious and easy blueberry pancakes with tasty homemade blueberry sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar or any other sweetener I used Swerve
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Pinch Kosher Salt
  • 2 large eggs separated yolks, and egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 6 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Ghee or unsalted butter for the skillet
  • 1/2 cup Blueberries

Blueberry Sauce

  • 2 cups Blueberries, fresh or frozen (You can use even wild frozen blueberries)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp Cornstarch or any other thickener (no flour)

Instructions

    1. Whisk together dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
    2. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients: egg yolks and the buttermilk. Add the cream cheese and mix until combined (the mixture will look broken). Stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract. Combine everything together by adding the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine. I like to use an electric mixer to make these as smooth as possible
    3. Now, In another bowl, using electric mixer mix the egg whites with a splash of apple cider vinegar until soft peaks form, then gently fold into the pancake batter. This will make pancakes fluffy.
    4. Heat a cast-iron pan or a skillet over medium heat then brush with melted butter or ghee.
    5. Drop the batter into the pan by 1/3-1/4 cup, leaving space between each pancake. It's good to have measuring cup close and use it as a ladle.
    6. Add blueberries, one at the time and slightly push down into pancake. No need to over crowed the pancake.
    7. Cook until golden brown on the bottom and just starting to dry a bit on top, adjusting the heat as necessary so the pancakes do not get too dark about 2 minutes.
    8. Flip and cook until the reverse side is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the finished pancakes to the baking sheet or a platter. You can keep warm in the oven or microwave until ready to serve. I even heat them up in the microwave for 30 seconds just before serving,
    9. Drizzle a bit of sauce over ir and enjoy, You may also add whatever you desire; fresh fruit, whipped cream, maple syrup or honey, jam, etc.

    Blueberry Sauce:

    Place one and a half of blueberries in a saucepan and reserve half o the cup for later. Cover with sugar and pour water over it a good squeeze of lemon.

    Then, cook over medium-low heat until mixture comes to a slight boil.

    Meanwhile, dissolve cornstarch in the cup with a few tablespoons of water, mix until smooth. Then dissolved cornstarch to the blueberries and bring mixture to a boil again.

    Continue simmer ing on low heat for a few more minutes, or until sauce reaches thicker consistency. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, if the sauce gets too thick.

    Add that half of the cup of reserved blueberries, stir and enjoy.

Notes

If I am eating pancakes or waffles I usually do gluten-free and sugar-free, however, sometimes I even use almond flour to make it just to keep it low carb. Just to add that Almond flour will not give you the fluffiest pancakes, but they are low carb so no complaints here.

Just use whatever you feel is right for you. I use sugar-free sugar as I like to call it, which is most of the time either monk fruit sweetener or Truvia. Also, "maple syrup" sugar-free. Which is not maple syrup just taste a bit like it. What I wanted to say that you can make it meet your dietary needs, it might not be exactly the same but you don't have to restrict yourself too much.

We eat it with Nutella, jam, or maple syrup. Sometimes, I would mix crushed walnuts and sugar, or honey and use that as a spread. It makes a wonderful snack, breakfast, or even dessert. Read more

Apple Cinnamon Waffles with Apple Compote

Apple Cinnamon Waffles with Apple Compote is so amazing and perfect for this cooler, autumn weather.

I just love my weekend to start on a happy note. Preferably with warm waffles or pancakes, and a hot cup of coffee.

I made these more than a couple of times last autumn as well as winter season. My family just love warm and cozy breakfasts, especially when we are all still in our PJs.

Anyhow, I really love pancakes, but waffles hit the spot every single time. Well, in particular with a flavor and aroma when I make these waffles with apple compote.

Do you like apple picking? I absolutely love getting apples from our local farms. To be honest, I am a huge supporter of our farmers, as we all should.

With that being said, getting a wooden case of delicious, locally grown apples is pure bliss. They are magical and so juicy.

Apple Cinnamon Waffles with Apple Compote

The kids enjoy apple picking as well, so when we make something like these waffles with apples is just labor of love in my eyes.

Autumn to me means roasting sweet pumpkin or winter squash, chestnuts, and apple compote. When I was a little girl I could not wait for the fall season to arrive.

I didn’t have an opportunity to eat waffles like this when I was a child, but I sure loved my apple compote and crepes.

Apple Cinnamon Waffles with Apple Compote

Apple Cinnamon Waffles with Apple Compote

Yield: Serves 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Apple Cinnamon Waffles are so easy and tasty. They make a perfect weekend breakfast or a brunch.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 3 Eggs separated
  • 1 and 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 apple finely chopped or shredded
  • Butter for greasing the waffle iron

Apple Compote

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 Apples chopped, (Honeycrisp)
  • 3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. In a bowl sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a second bowl use whisk (I use small from the electric mixer) to beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow.
  4. Add oil, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine very well. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until well blended. Do not over mix.
  5. In the third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, few minutes or so.
  6. Gently fold egg whites into the waffle batter.
  7. Add a finely chopped or shredded apple in the mixture and fold it again.
  8. Lightly brush butter on the waffle iron and pour enough batter in iron to just cover waffle grid, about 1/2 cup, of course, this depends on the size of your waffle maker.
  9. Close and cook as per manufacturer's instructions -until golden brown.

Apple Syrup

  1. In the sauce or frying pan add butter and coat it well over the medium-high heat.
  2. Add chopped apples, and saute apples for about 3-4 minutes turning them so they could get a nice color on all sides.
  3. Add Maple Syrup, cinnamon and lemon juice, and just a pinch of salt.
  4. Cook for a couple of minutes or until the sauce is thick and all diced apples are coated well with the sauce.
  5. Drizzle over the waffles and scoop apples and use them as a topping. You can also add nuts. I used almonds, but you can add walnuts or hazelnuts, etc.

Notes

You may try other fruit or sweet potatoes, maybe sauteed bananas... be adventures!

You can use Gluten-Free Flour and sugar-free pancake syrup instead of maple.
