Mock Danish

Posted by Solitary Dancer on March 9, 2006

Mock Danish 

2 oz. cream cheese (1/4 package) 1 egg
2 tsp Splenda
1/2 tsp vanilla
cinnamon to taste (I use lots)
Soften the cream cheese in the microwave in a cereal bowl.  Beat with a spoon until smooth.  Add the egg and beat until creamy.  Add the rest of the ingredients and scrape down the sides with a spatula to get all the batter in the bottom of the bowl.
Microwave on high for 30 seconds; rotate bowl and cook another 30 seconds.   You may have to cook a little longer, depending on your microwave, but the centre should be a little soft for the Danish filling effect.  Run a spatula around and under the Danish to release it from the bowl and transfer upside down to a small plate.
Total carbs:  4 grams

Cinnamon Glaze For Mock Danish


1 tablespoon butter-softened
1/4 teaspoon granular Splenda (I guess you could use liquid but never tried)
Pinch of cinnamon.


Blend all ingredients well in a small bowl. If necessary, freeze a few minutes until very thick but spreadable. Spread over cooled Mock Danish.

Makes 1 serving.

    Just made this to satisfy a sweet fix (I am not diabetic, but am on phase one of the South Beach Diet).

    It was tasty but a little texturally odd – fluffy, and without much body. Did you find the same or did I do something wrong?

    It does take some practice. What you’re trying to do is get the consistency of a cheese danish. The ouside is like pastry but the inside or center is soft and gooey. Try fiddling with the time. Each microwave is a bit different.

    Otherwise, just enjoy!!!!!

    I make this same thing from time to time. I always use 1/4 flax seed meal. This does not add any carbs, but adds a major amount of fiber and body. Make the “danish” more bready. I also use orange extract in mine. That and the cinnamon make it taste like a yummy bear claw .

    Hope this helps.

    Oh wow, what a great idea. Thanks for a new idea on a great recipe! I can’t wait to try this one out.

    I read a few recipes for the mock danish and each time I just thought that it would be eggy and gross… I was indeed surprised when I tried it this morning!!!!! I used only egg white instead of the whole egg so it wouldn’t be so eggy, and it looked quite gross when it came out of the microwave. To my surprise, it was soooo tastey and sweet! I didn’t have any Splenda around, so I had to swipe some from work, shh! I absolutely love this recipe, and I will definitely be eating this almost every morning!

    When Im made this it was quite gross looking, i had to add another 2×15 seconds and more cinnamon 😀 But its tasty, i can taste the egg a bit but other then that its pretty tasty and my chicken smells nice 😀

    I think revolution rolls make a better danish, just add cinnamon, vanilla, and splenda. The texture is more bready.

    I have made this before, and if you add Flax it makes a world of difference! Just my $0.02

  11. Adding Flax is always a good thing. Thanks for the tip!

    Wow. I tried this recipe using the flax seed. It was AMAZING!!! I’m hooked. My 2-year-old kept fighting me to eat it. She’s hooked too! Thanks.
