I am sure you all know by now that I am a huge fan of anything “Brunch”! I usually stick to the savory side of things, but every once in a while, I get a craving for something sinfully sweet! Well, this recipe hits the mark! It might also hit your waistline…..lol……It is soooo worth it though! I honestly came up with this recipe on a whim. It was one of those (rare) lazy Saturday’s where I had no pressing plans, so I set off to the kitchen to create my masterpiece. Sometimes, even after all these years, I wonder if my husband really does enjoy my recipes. This was not one of those times! Judging by the yummmm’s coming from the table, I would say this was a great success! Grab those baggy pants, this coming weekend, and treat yourself! You won’t be sorry!
- For the Pancakes:
- 2 cups baking mix (I used Bisquick)
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- For the Cream Cheese Glaze:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 ounces cream cheese
- 1 1/2 to 2 Tablespoons milk
- For the Streusel:
- 1/2 cup baking mix (I used Bisquick)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 stick salted butter, divided into tablespoons
For the Pancakes; Whisk together all ingredients and set aside.
Fot the Glaze: Whisk together all ingredients and set aside.
For the Streusel: Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse together until course balls are formed. You can also do this step with a fork, the processor is just mush faster.
Once you have everything prepared, preheat a large, non-stick, skillet over medium heat. Spray the skillet with non-stick cooking spray and pour 1/2 cup of the pancake batter into the center. Sprinkle the uncooked pancake with the streusel topping. Allow the pancake to cook until the edges are golden brown. Carefully flip the pancake and continue cooking until the underside is also golden brown. Remove the cooked pancake to an oven safe dish and keep warm in a preheated, 175 degree, oven while you prepare the remaining pancakes.
Finally, assemble short stacks of pancakes, top each stack with the cream cheese glaze, warm maple syrup, sifted powdered sugar and fresh whipped cream.
As always, I hop you enjoy! Come back and share your thoughts!
Much Love- The Glitzy Gourmet!
