Guava Cream Cheese Pancakes topped with Cream Cheese Buttercream

You can find guava nectar and guava paste at your local supermarket in the hispanic aisle. Also if you follow a vegan diet you can totally replace the cream cheese for a vegan spread and the eggs for egg replacement.

Guava Sauce

For the guava sauce:

  • Pay attention and stir frequently to avoid the liquid to solidify.
  • Follow the instructions carefully to avoid getting burned.
  • You can double the sauce recipe and store the leftovers inside a mason jar and use it as a spread on future recipes.

Here’s the recipe:

  • A few drops of vanilla extract

For Guava Pancakes:

  • 2 Cups of unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Cup guava paste, finely diced
  • 1 Cup guava nectar
  • 1 Cup almond milk or your choice of milk
  • 1/4 Cup vegetable oil

For the Sauce:
In a small saucepan, heat the cubed guava paste, water, and vanilla over medium/low heat, stirring constantly until the guava paste melts and all the ingredients are incorporated. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

For the Pancakes:

  1. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Whisk in the sugar and set aside.

  4. Put buttercream inside a piping bag and frost your pancakes.
