IHOP New York Cheesecake Pancakes Copycat Recipe
This copycat recipe created by the Food Network is wonderful. Just like the original. Great recipe to have on hand for special occasion breakfast and brunch. Great use for those delicious plump strawberries at the local farmer's market.
Almost Famous Cheesecake Pancakes
* 1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
* 2 tablespoons seedless strawberry jam
* 11/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 11/4 cups buttermilk
* 1 large egg
* 1/4 cup vegetable oil
* 1/4 cup granulated sugar
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* Pinch of salt
* 2 cups chopped frozen cheesecake
* Cooking spray
* Butter, confectioners' sugar or whipped cream, for topping (optional)
Mix the strawberries, jam and 2 tablespoons warm water in a bowl; set aside. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
Pulse the flour, buttermilk, egg, vegetable oil, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the cheesecake pieces, keeping them whole.
Coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Working in batches, pour about 1/4 cup batter into the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbly on top, about 4 minutes, then flip and cook until the other side is golden brown, about 2 more minutes. Transfer the finished pancakes to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Serve the pancakes topped with the strawberry sauce; top with butter, confectioners' sugar or whipped cream, if desired.
