  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon red food coloring
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • heavy cream, or half and half, or milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Instructions

  • Slice cream cheese lengthwise into long thin pieces, wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze one hour or overnight.
  • Preheat a large pan or nonstick skillet to medium heat and spray with cooking spray. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cocoa powder and whisk together until well combined. 
  • In another bowl combine beaten egg, buttermilk, vanilla, red food coloring and mix until well blended. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. 
  • Remove cream cheese from freezer, unwrap and cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Stir cream cheese pieces into pancake batter. 
  • Pour 1/4 cup batter onto prepared pan or skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes until top begins to bubble and sides start to look “dry”. Carefully flip and cook about 2 minutes longer. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Whisk all icing ingredients together in a medium sauce pan and heat over low heat. Drizzle over pancakes. Enjoy!
