I'm not sure it tasted like a danish, but it was a nice change from my usual eggs for breakfast. I made mine with 3 tablespoons egg whites and it microwaved perfectly. I love the cinnamon-sweet cream cheese flavor. Thanks!

Tried this today for a sweet treat while watching carbs. Really good although it took quite a bit longer to not be wet in the middle. Yummy and I plan to try again with lemon extract. Made exactly as directed except for the omission of the butter.

You can't rate a thing like this in comparison to high carb foods. Of course it's not a sticky sweet flaky dough Danish. What it is, is a very nice low carb dessert that tastes a bit like bread pudding. If you are committed to low carb eating, you'll most likely appreciate this recipe. I made it with Neufchâtel cheese and EZ-sweetz liquid Splenda as both are lower carb than cream cheese and powdered Splenda.
