Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes

Anytime I go to IHOP this is what I order. I love anything made with a cheesecake type filling. These delicious pancakes are no different. Almost tastes like I am eating a dessert not a breakfast.

The strawberry syrup adds such a nice sweetness to the cheesecake pancakes. These are so yummy.

I am just glad that now I do not have to head over to IHOP when I want these strawberry cheesecake pancakes.

Strawberry Syrup
  • 3 cups strawberries, diced
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Cheesecake Blender Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 – 1 1/2 cups milk (depending on how thick you like your pancakes)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Dry ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Prepare Fresh Strawberry Ingredients according to recipe.
  2. While syrup is simmering, add Cheesecake Blender Ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together Dry Ingredients.
  4. Pour the Cheesecake Blender mixture into the Dry Ingredients and whisk just until combined. Do not over mix – there should be small lumps. (If you like thinner pancakes, thin with more milk as desired, being careful not to overmix).
  5. Heat a lightly greased large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour pancakes by the 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
  6. Top with Fresh Strawberry Syrup.
Strawberry Syrup
  1. Combine strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a gentle simmer until the strawberries are soft and the syrup is thickened and reduced by 1/3 to 1/2 in volume, approximately 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Syrup will thicken upon standing so simply whisk in more water to reached desired consistency if needed.
