They are, without a doubt, absolutely heavenly! Originally I had the idea for them whilst making the (also irresistible) Hawaiian Macadamia Nut and Banana Pancakes. I rushed to my calendar to check the date for Pancake Day this year and I couldn’t believe how late it was! Initially I was, of course, super disappointed until I realised that it gave me ample opportunity to try these pancakes out.

I determined in that moment that I would try them out as many times as necessary to make sure that they were the best Cherry Cheesecake Pancakes that they could possibly be!!!  ;)

I always link pancakes and cherry compote together in my mind. When I was young we would sometimes visit the Little Chef when we travelled long distances and their pancake with cherry compote was my Mum’s favourite. It stood out with the little square of ice cream and dark cherry filling. One year we went to my Grandmother’s for Pancake Day and she bought some cherry compote for the filling, as well as the traditional sugar and lemon, and everyone loved it.

This cherry compote is super easy to make and you can serve to hot or cold with or without the cherry cheesecake and it’s perfect every time.

You know I can’t resist the divine taste of Dalfour’s Black Cherry jam – of all their delectable flavours this one has always been my absolute favourite. It’s so awesome here because, when combined with the non-dairy cream cheese, it makes an almost instantaneous, sweet fruity and delicious filling for your pancakes.

The little bit of cream cheese in the pancake mix just adds the perfect sweet cheesecake flavour – once tried they truly are impossible to resist.
