Once upon a time, I avoided pancakes. Most of the time was sans griddle. My first one worked for a month and then abruptly quit. If I don't make pancakes in a griddle, I mess them up. All sorts of messed up. I'm not even sure why. My pans are nonstick and I know how to make pancakes. Now that I have a working griddle (that hasn't died on me - I swear I'm just not good with kitchen appliances), I've been exploring many variations of pancakes.

What you need:
Pancakes:
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cup chopped frozen cheesecake*
Topping:
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temp
  • 1/4 cup butter, at room temp
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 can cherry pie filling, warmed
Directions:
  1. Combine cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Place in refrigerator until ready to warm up for serving.
  2. Pulse pancake ingredients (except cheesecake bits) in a blender or food processor. Stir in cheesecake bits.
  3. Cook 1/4 cup batter at a time in a skillet or on a griddle.
  4. Warm both the cream cheese mixture and the cherry pie filling (separately).
  5. Top pancakes with cream cheese and then cherries. Serve right away!
*I found the cheesecake was easier to chop when it was thawed, but is better frozen while cooking.
