Strawberry Cream Cheese Pancake Muffins

Pancakes are on the menu every weekend around here. I have never and will never get tired of making them or eating them. Since it is a weekly tradition, I do my best to switch it up and try new things. So this weekend I baked the batter in adorable muffin form! These strawberry cream cheese pancake muffins made our favorite weekend treat portable. It ended up coming in handy since this was a super busy weekend.

The batter for the strawberry cream cheese pancake muffins was just like any of my other pancake batters. I whisked my wet ingredients into my dry ingredients before I folded in my whipped up egg whites and chopped strawberries! That was all it took.
Then I poured the batter using a heaping 1/3 cup into my liberally greased muffin wells. There was a little batter leftover, so I sealed it in a container and made a small batch of pancakes with it later!
After 20 minutes in the oven, the strawberry cream cheese pancake muffins became puffy, golden perfection. I let them cool for 5 minutes before I turned them out to cool enough to handle. Luckily I greased the pan enough that they slipped right out. Then I just served them immediately!

Oh my goodness, these babies were like puffy, strawberry and cream clouds! The whipped up egg whites made them so airy. The strawberry cream cheese also gave them the most incredible flavor and texture. It was my favorite breakfast in a handy, portable package! Hope you all enjoy them as much as we did here. xoxo

Ingredients
  • cooking spray as needed
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup strawberry cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 whole eggs yolks separated from whites
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh strawberries
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 and liberally spray a 12 well muffin tin with cooking spray. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl and whisk them together to aerate them. Then combine the milk, strawberry cream cheese, balsamic vinegar and egg yolks together in another bowl and whisk them together until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk them together thoroughly into a thick, smooth batter. Have the egg whites separated in another bowl and use a hand mixer to whip them up into stiff peaks. Use a spatula to gently fold the egg whites and strawberries into the batter.
  2. Use a heaping 1/3 cup measure to scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin wells. There might be some leftover batter to make some extra pancakes! Bake the pancake muffins for about 20 minutes, until they are puffy and golden. Let them cool for 5 minutes, then turn them out on a rack to cool enough to handle. Serve them immediately and enjoy! Leftovers can be refrigerated, then heated up in the toaster the next day.
