Cream Cheese Topping:

  • 4 oz half of 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


  • 2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red paste food color*
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries or other seasonal fruit optional


  • In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and 3 tablespoons milk with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, on low speed until topping is smooth. Cover; set aside.
  • In large bowl, stir all pancake ingredients except powdered sugar with wire whisk until well blended. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat (375°F). (To test griddle, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If bubbles jump around, heat is just right.) Brush with vegetable oil if necessary or spray with cooking spray before heating.
  • For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and edges are dry. Turn; cook other side until golden brown.
  • Spoon cream cheese topping into resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut off tiny corner of bag; squeeze bag to drizzle topping over pancakes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • Garnish with fresh fruit. Enjoy!
