Wow, these are fancy pancakes. Thick and fluffy, they're slightly sweet and mimic the flavors of cheesecake. The homemade berry syrup makes them special and it is the perfect touch on top of the rich pancakes. Simple enough to make for a weekend breakfast and special enough for a holiday or brunch.

    2
    For pancakes preheat the griddle to 325 degrees F.
  • Cheesecake pancake ingredients combined in a bowl.
    3
    Combine ingredients in a medium bowl; stir well until just blended. Do not over stir - this will make the pancakes tough.
