This morning, I woke up at 5:30AM. And when I wake up, there is no power on this earth that can put me back to sleep.
Of course, I have my first class at 1PM, so it’s not like I want to go all the way to UBC just to wait around, especially since it was cold and raining. So what do I do instead?
Make pancakes of course!
If you like cream cheese, then hang on to your hats. This will blow you away. They were melt-in-your-mouth pancakes, but every now and then there would be a lovely chunk of cream cheese to surprise you on random bites.
If you don’t like those little surprises (which my brother found alarming but not all too unpleasant) I would try melting the cream cheese. Otherwise, go nuts!
Cream Cheese Pancakes
What you’ll need:
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon salt
-3 teaspoon baking powder
-2 tablespoon sugar
-1 egg, beaten
-1 1/2 cups milk
-3 oz cream cheese
-1 tablespoon butter, melted
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar.
2. In a separate bowl, beat together the egg, milk, cream cheese, butter and vanilla extract. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until fully incorporated.
3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking
spray. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, and flip when bubbles
are covering the surface of the pancake. Cook the other side
until it is golden.
