Who wants pancakes?

Everyone loves pancakes, at least in my family! You can never get tired of pancakes.

I’ve gotten use to making different pancakes because the little man doesn’t like eggs. He used to love eggs but all of a sudden he stopped eating them. He won’t even touch anything that is make of eggs, no quiche, no omelets, no egg baskets. It limits breakfast options for him a little but I’ve gotten creative with parfaits, waffles and pancakes. Hubby is especially happy about my pancake experiments.


I told you that you will be seeing a lot of key lime recipes from me. I have an awesome milkshake coming up on Kelly’s site at and delicious cookies coming up on Carolyn’s site at Stay tuned because they are all coming soon!

I still have a few more key limes to use up. You just never know what I will come up with! If you have any requests, feel free to leave a comment.

Key Lime Cheesecake Pancakes
Serves: Makes 4-6 pancakes
  • Buttermilk Pancakes:
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 oz melted unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cups buttermilk
  • Zest from 1.5 key limes
  • Cheesecake Topping:
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 2 tbs butter
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • Zest from 1.5 key limes
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • Coconut is optional
  1. Pancakes: Whisk together the wet pancake ingredients until combined.
  2. Whisk in the dry ingredients, including key lime zest and let the batter stand for about 10 minutes. (This is a good time to preheat your cooking pan on medium heat and start the topping.)
  3. Cook the pancakes, in the preheated pan, for about a minute or two on each side. Check the pancakes by pressing lightly in the center, if its firm the pancakes are done.
  4. Topping: In a small sauce pot, (on medium heat,) combine butter, cream cheese and key lime zest. Using a silicone covered whisk, whisk the ingredients together until smooth.
  5. Slowly pour in the heavy cream while stirring. Add vanilla and sugar. Keep stirring until smooth.
  6. Bring to a low boil and take off heat.
  7. Top of the pancakes with sauce when serving. You can sprinkle with some coconut flakes if you'd like.
