Blueberry Cheesecake Flapjacks Recipe

These flapjacks are so pretty, it’s tempting to just gaze at them. But as good as they are to look at, they’re even better to eat! —Donna Cline, Pensacola, Florida

"Just didn't think this was worth the effort. I cannot taste the graham cracker and the pancakes were very dense. The topping was disgusting with the heat of the pancakes melting it all over the place. I will not be making these again without some major modifications."

"These were just ok. In my opinion, it was a lot more work that they were worth. The graham cracker crumbs added no additional flavor, and I wasn't that impressed with the cheesecake topping although my housemates both loved it."

"These pancakes to my family were just OK. My 4 year old son did not like them at all. My husband & I just were not that impressed. The batter is not very sweet, but I understand that because you have the blueberries, topping & syrup. It is just the the whipped/cream cheese topping wasn't that great. It sounds like it would be, but all together everything was just average. I would not make these again."

"There are not too many recipes I make twice, and this one will miss the cut. Good but too dense. The graham cracker makes it taste like whole wheat, might as well make whole wheat. I tried to make it look like the picture except for a serving size is three pancakes, which is what should be in the picture, and if you like hot pancakes (as most people do) the whipped cream cheese melts and the pancakes slide to the side. It isn't going to looks like that. But, the family ate them all gone."

"We just love this pancakes that I have to make this overand over again. My husband's favorite. Although when I make it, I don't put any berries at all and we just use pure maple syrup instead of cream cheese topping with it. I even tried it with vanilla wafer crumb and was still delicious. This has been my pancake recipe in the last year."

"I don't like pancakes too much but these looked so good I had to try them, and they were great. I added sugar, vanilla and cinnamon to the cream cheese mixture because I have such a sweet tooth. The 4 kids loved them, too. Will make again, especially if I have company over. The only thing I would change if anything, would be for them to not be so dense, they are VERY heavy and you can't really eat more than 2-3 without feeling so stuffed and I like to have eggs and fruit with pancakes so I don't feel so yucky afterwards but this is too filling for that so next time I might only have one."

"So, so good! Have made these over and over again and we love them each time! We use only half the cream cheese/whip cream as they are very sweet. Panckes are great without the filling too."

"I made these for breakfast the other day, and while they did taste great, they were a bit dense. Too heavy, not light or fluffy at all. I followed the recipe perfectly. Also, the blueberries I used were not nearly sweet enough, made pancakes almost tart. I would try again, but interested in using canned pie blueberries instead."
