pancakes with cream cheese toppingSo this morning I made my son Pancakes with a Cream Cheese Topping and Fresh Strawberries that is a recipe that came from a friend. I have never made them like this before and found it different, unique and delicious so of course I had to share if you have never tried this before.

Now there is a little bit of a back story to this breakfast. See when my son stays over his friends house his mother, my friend Carla, will make this for them. All I hear is how good she cooks and I am a very competitive person and so I said I think I can make that better. Come on I want my son to say I cook him the best stuff – lol.

So I found out from her what it was she makes and decided I was gonna make it for my son, but I was going to do it better of course – hee hee. She told me about this Cream Cheese Topping she makes that she had on a trip one time and then recreated it at home and found all the kids loved it.

This could not be any more simple to make and I must say I was skeptical on how it would be on pancakes and was so surprised after I tasted it how good it was. I have honestly always only had syrup on my pancakes and now I think I have been converted.

So here is what you need:

  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Cream Cheese, softened
  • Sugar
  • Pancakes

So last night I cut up my Fresh Strawberries placed them in a bowl and added a small amount of water and sprinkled them with Sugar. I mixed them up so that they were well coated and let them marinate for the night. This adds a nice sweet sauce to them and makes them extra yummy.

Then in another bowl I took my Softened Cream Cheese and mixed in sugar to taste (you want it sweet, but not too sweet). I did this last night too, but u can do it before serving as well. I just thought when it sat overnight it would taste even better – I had to one up my friend ya know!!

So this morning I cooked up my pancakes and then just warmed the Cream Cheese Topping in the microwave.

That is it !!!

This is a great idea for a Sleepover Party Breakfast too for something different.

So if you have never tried Pancakes with a Cream Cheese Topping and Fresh Strawberries I say do it – it may just be your kids new favorite breakfast!!
