Flourless Pancakes: Cream Cheese pancakes spiced with cinnamon and cardamon

I am a week into unemployment (or uninternshipness) and have been slowly but surely working on my paper, moseying about my apartment, and applying for a stack of really great job opportunities. I’ve finally opened my mind to the possibility of moving away from Vancouver, somewhere like Toronto, if I am able to find something great out there. I’ve just applied for a really wonderful position at a progressive company that I’ve had my eye on for the last year, so it would be wonderful to work with them. It will be a very sad thing if we have to leave Vancouver, we’ve certainly felt like we belong here, but sometimes you have to do what’s best for your career and Gen is on board. So, we’ll see where all this goes.

Fluffy Mascarpone Pancakes

After those wonderful Guinness cupcakes were topped with the mascarpone whipped cream, I had quite a bit of cheese left (I got a little mascarpone enthusiastic). I am not a big fan of pancakes but these turned out fluffy and tender, not too sweet. I topped them with the leftover mascarpone whipped cream and blueberries. Oh yes, and I also stirred in a handful of the tart blueberries for an additional burst of flavour.

Mascarpone Pancakes

Serves 6-8


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup firm, tart blueberries (or whatever berry you love!)
  • 1 cup mascarpone
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup of cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together mascarpone, milk, eggs, and vanilla until well combined. Add blueberries and stir to just coat.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together dry ingredients, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Slowly whisk dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, just until smooth and combined.
  4. Heat a large pan over medium heat with a pat of butter. Spread out the batter in large dollops and cook until golden, flip and repeat.
  5. Top with mascarpone whipped cream or syrup.


I made them very thick.
