Mock Danish { cheesecake-like microwavable breakfast - south beach diet friendly }

The popular low carb mock danish. This is a really easy recipe that you can eat for breakfast or dessert. I used to make it all the time when I did Atkins years ago. Top it with sugar free (or regular) syrup or jam.

1 serving

1 large egg
2 oz cream cheese
splash vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1-2 packets Splenda

Heat the cream cheese in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften it. Remove the cream cheese from the microwave and stir in the rest of the ingredients until well combined. Don't worry about lumps.

Microwave for about 2 minutes or until cooked through. Top with something sweet.

Tip: I used sugar free syrup. Change it up depending on your dietary needs. You could also grate some lemon zest into this. You could add cocoa or anything else that you think would be tasty. It's a good base recipe. If you're on South Beach you'll need to use light cream cheese.
