Cauliflower Shortcake Pancakes

This week was busssy, but there was still enough time for at least a bit of kitchen fun. After what seems like weeks of scones, muffins, cereal and bagels (convenience to the win), I was craving something a little more creative for my morning off.  And who doesn’t like PANCAKES? Mmmmmm.

Next question. Who doesn’t like CAULIFLOWER in their pancakes?

Okay… fair enough.

How about CAKE for breakfast?

Now you’re talking.

I had tried my hands at cauliflower pancakes once before, and they just kind of ended up like soggy, crumbly pieces of white mush.  Tasted alright… but definitely didn’t quench my need for a solid, fluffy, slice-with-a-knife-and-fork stack-a-cakes.

But third second time’s a charm?  These guys turned out amazing!! I swear they tasted exactly like strawberry shortcake. Especially with some “icing” dalloped ontop.

I kept things completely grain free and used the wonders of coconut flour, which no doubt helped with the fluffy cake like texture.

I sandwiched and topped my cakes with a simple whipped cottage cheese cream. Aka icing. I just blended some cottage cheese with a few pinches of stevia and vanilla and bam – sweeeeeet custardy whipped cream.

The cakes even stayed sturdy enough to house the cream and not go soggy. Well done cakes, well done.

Cauliflower Shortcake Pancakes

Grain free, sugar free

Serves 1

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (Optional. I would add an extra Tbsp of coconut flour at the end if the batter seems too runny).
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cauliflower “rice”

Cottage Cheese Whipped cream

  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 packet of stevia or 3-4 drops (or any sweetener of your choice)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Pulse cauliflower in food processor until it reaches a fine, “rice” like consistency (about a cup of florets should make your 1/4 cup).  

Combine flour, protein powder and baking powder in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, whisk your egg whites vigorously until frothy.  Add cauliflower rice, applesauce and almond milk and stir to combine.  Add wet ingredients to dry. Blend your cream cheese in food processor with stevia  (or sweetener of choice) and remaining ingredients until smooth. Cook pancakes on a non stick or slightly greased skillet for about 5-6 minutes per side. These pancakes won’t bubble like normal cakes, so watch them carefully!  Top with whipped cottage cheese and fruit or berries of choice.

ENJOY!!

    Dang! I am all about single serving pancake recipes. These one is very unique- especially the whipped cottage cheese stuffing, that sounds like a real winner.
