Homemade Cracker Barrel Cream Cheese Pancakes

Equipment

[products skus="11,12,13,14,15,16"]

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step-by-step Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, softened cream cheese, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are perfectly fine.
  4. Preheat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Grease it lightly with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of the pancake batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Use the back of a spoon to spread the batter into a round shape.
  6. Cook until you see bubbles forming on the surface of the pancakes, then flip them and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Remove the pancakes from the griddle and keep them warm.

Recipe Notes

To avoid lumps when incorporating cream cheese, make sure it's softened and mix it well with the wet ingredients.

Recipe Variations

  • Customize your pancakes by adding chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or fresh fruit to the batter.

Tips and Tricks

  1. Make sure to preheat the griddle or skillet to the right temperature to ensure even cooking.
  2. Use a non-stick skillet or griddle and a light coating of cooking spray to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
  3. For extra fluffy pancakes, avoid overmixing the batter; a few lumps are okay.
  4. Keep cooked pancakes warm in a 200°F (93°C) oven until you're ready to serve.
