Triple Berry Pancakes With Cream Cheese Filling Recipe

I cannot help myself. I have declared this summer the summer of drunken triple berry everything. It will be a very good summer.


Enter stage left… or stage right… or does it even really matter which side of the stage they enter from?  The drunken-triple-berry-topped cream-cheese-filled pancakes.

DRUNKEN TRIPLE BERRY TOPPING:

  • 4 cups mixed fresh berries
  • 2 cups sugar
  • Juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 1/2 cup bourbon (or water)
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch

Place berries in a medium bowl. If using strawberries, cut them into small pieces. This time I used strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.  My favorite to mix in though is normally blackberries. They are so purply and divine.

Add sugar, lemon juice, and bourbon.

Give a stir and allow to sit for at least a half an hour.

After berries have had time to rest, place in a sauce pan.

While cold, stir in cornstarch until well-mixed.

Turn onto medium high heat while continually stirring. Watch for filling to boil and keep stirring until thickened. Keep warm and serve warm.

Oh, momma.

Make a stack of pancakes. Or two.

A double batch of these pancakes will make enough to match the cream cheese and berry topping recipes and will feed about 6-7 people. Or, you know, fewer people and more food – depending on who you’re feeding. Either way, big eaters and small will be happy.

PANCAKE INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Keep pancakes warm on a baking sheet in 170°F oven. Cover well with foil while finishing making the pancakes to prevent them from drying out.

Whip together cream cheesy goodness.

CREAM CHEESE FILLING RECIPE:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter (or 1/2 a stick) softened
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Up to a tablespoon warm water, if needed to thin
  • Dash of salt

Mix well with a hand mixer.

Spread cream cheese filling on top of each pancake. Stack and then adorn with plenty of berry topping and, perhaps, a sprig of fresh mint.

Yes, indeed, it will be a very good * hiccup * summer.
