I’ve just added a couple of of items to the cream cheese pancake to make a Black Forest version for a healthy but decadent dessert.  Or breakfast if you wish.  This is good for gluten free and low carbers too.   I made these pancakes mini ones as the mixture can yield a delicate pancake.  So only dropped a teaspoon of mixture into the hot pan.


100g cream cheese, softened

2 large eggs, separated

1/4 tspn salt

1 tblspn ground flax seed

1 tblspn erythritol (or sweetner of your choice)

1 tblspn cocoa powder

1 cup cherries, destoned

Whipped cream to serve

2 tblspn butter


  1. Beat egg whites until soft peaks.
  2. Put egg yolks in a separate bowl, add the cocoa powder, salt, flax and erythritol, and mix well.  Add the cream cheese and blend well.
  3. Fold the egg whites into the mixture.
  4. Heat a pan and melt a tablespoon of butter.  Pour a tablespoon of the pancake mixture onto the pan and flatten them down into pancake sizes.
  5. Cook for 2-3 minutes and turn over to cook on other side.
  6. Remove from pan, layer with cherries and cream.
  7. Eat and enjoy!
