Test Kitchen Tips

This recipe was developed in our test kitchen. Check out some tips and tricks from culinary experts that might make the cooking process easier:

  • If using a griddle heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), then turn down to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) after adding the batter.
  • Don’t forget to spray the uncooked side of the pancake before flipping! Coating the pancakes after adding the cream cheese swirl helps prevent the pancakes from sticking.


  • 8 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 3/4 cup strawberry jam
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 5 tablespoons white sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • cooking spray
  • Graham cracker crumbs or powdered sugar for topping


  1. Gather all ingredients.

  2. For topping, combine strawberries and jam in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer; set aside.

  3. For cream cheese swirl, combine cream cheese, 3 tablespoons sugar, milk, and vanilla in a small bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.

  4. Transfer cream cheese mixture to a pastry bag or a resealable plastic bag with a corner snipped off.

  5. For pancake batter, combine flour, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

  6. Combine egg, buttermilk, and oil in a medium bowl.

  7. Add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).

  8. Heat an extra-large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/3 cup portions of batter onto the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low.

  9. Cook until bottoms are golden brown and edges are slightly dry and bubbles form at the edges of the pancakes, 2 to 3 minutes.

  10. Pipe a swirl of cream cheese onto each pancake starting from the center.

  11. Coat the uncooked side of the pancakes with cooking spray.

  12. Turn and cook 2 to 3 minutes more on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter and cream cheese mixture.
