When I heard Kraft was coming out with Philadelphia Chocolate Cream Cheese I almost died and went to heaven. I mean who doesn’t love cream cheese and chocolate? Now the two greatest things have been combined and I have already been using it in my many baking recipes and as an extra special treat for me and the girls on some of our favourite breakfast foods!
When my girls saw this smooth chocolaty goodness spread on their french toast one morning they screamed “You are the best mom ever!” I was the best mom ever, they devoured their breakfast and now give me that loving look in the morning when they want their breakfast jazzed up!
New Philadelphia Chocolate is made with the creamy goodness of the Philly you know and love with a touch of pure milk chocolate. This delicious Cream Cheese has half the sugar and calories of the leading hazelnut spread, not to mention it is a great treat for the whole family. Spread it on toast, bagels, french toast or pancakes as part of a complete breakfast.
One of my girls favourite breakfast recipes is my Banana Pancakes topped with some Philly Chocolate and you can make this for you & your family by using my recipe below. Maybe make a morning of it; rent Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, make these delicious pancakes and have a breakfast picnic in your living room while watching the movie!
Philly Chocolate Banana Pancakes
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tbs sugar
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 small over-ripe banana the browner your banana is the better
1 cup & 2 tbs milk
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbs melted unsalted butter
Vegetable oil (For Frying Pan)
Unsalted butter (For Frying Pan)
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees
1. In a medium sized bowl whisk together your flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
2. In a small sized bowl mash your banana until you get to your desired smoothness (my kids prefer completely smooth, they don’t like chunks of banana).
3. After you have mashed your banana whisk in your eggs.
4. Once you have whisked in your eggs add your milk and vanilla and whisk until well blended.
5. Pour your banana mixture and the melted butter into your flour mixture folding your batter gently just until it is blended – be careful not to over mix your batter it will be thick and lumpy depending on your banana smoothness.
6. Place a non-stick pan over medium heat on your stove top until hot. Once it is hot place a square of butter and one tablespoon of vegetable oil into your pan and swirl it around to mix it up a bit.
7. Drop your batter into your pan using a ladle or measuring cup, making sure your pancakes are 2 inches apart. Cook them until a few bubbles form the top of the pancakes and the underside is golden brown, then flip your pancakes and cook until the bottom side is golden brown and the top is puffed up.
8. Transfer your pancakes onto an oven safe dish and place in your oven to keep warm.
9. Wipe out your pan then add more butter and oil and repeat until you have cooked all your pancakes.
10. To top your pancakes you can either spread Philly Chocolate on top or scoop a ball of Philly Chocolate with a melon baller and place on top. Add a few slices of bananas, sprinkle some confectioners sugar on top and enjoy!
