Ingredients

Pancakes:

  • 1 cup All-purpose flour melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 tbsp White Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp Butter

For the cream cheese frosting:

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Clean Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tbsp Water

For the green whipped cream:

  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 3/4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Adams Extract Green Food Coloring

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Then add in theĀ  buttermilk, milk, eggs, and melted butter. Mix for 30 seconds until all ingredients are blended.
  • Spray cooking spray on a griddle or frying pan. Heat at medium heat. Using a small ladle or ice cream scoop (using about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake (or less if you want silver dollar pancakes)), pour the batter onto the griddle.
  • Let the pancakes cook until you begin to startto see bubbles form on the top of the batter (about 1-2 minutes). Then flip, and cook an additional 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from griddle and repeat until all the batter is used.

For the cream cheese frosting:

  • Mix together using a hand mixer or stand mixer the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and water (start with 2 tablespoons and add additional water as needed to thin frosting). Mix until smooth, and set to the side.

For the green whipped cream:

  • Using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, mix the heavy cream, powder sugar, and green food coloring until stiff peaks form (about 3-5 minutes on medium high speed). Place in a piping bag fitted with a star (no. 1) tip.
  • To assemble the pancakes, stack pancakes then drizzle on the cream cheese frosting. Top pancake with green whipped cream. Add heart shaped sprinkles on top. Repeat until all the pancakes are done and enjoy.
