What do you need to prepare Fluffy Cream Cheese Pancakes?

How to prepare Fluffy Cream Cheese Pancakes?
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate dish, whisk egg whites until white and foamy. In a large dish, whisk cream cheese, sugar, egg yolks and vanilla. Add wet ingredients into dry ones and whisk to combine. Fold in egg whites. Heat large non stick skillet or griddle at a medium temperature. Grease with oil. Pour a 1/4 cup batter in the dish. Bake for about 2 minutes or until the bottom side becomes golden and bubbles appear. Turn over with spatula and bake for another minute, or until it becomes golden. Serve with maple syrup, honey, butter or fruit.
If you find the batter too thick, fold a couple tablespoons of extra milk into the batter at a time until reaching desired consistency.
I usually bake 4 pancakes at the same time. It is best to use the batter immediately. Don´t leave it for tomorrow.
