South Beach Danish

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Jenti

This is a low carb, SB friendly, really quick and delicious breakfast. I found this and a couple others on a SB forum and wanted to post it here so I wouldn't lose it like all the other recipes I print out! I have found if you use a regular size (salad, soup, cereal size) bowl it works the best. Put a small spoonfull of sugar free jam in the middle after it's done cooking and cooled down a bit to make any flavor danish you like! Yum!

I could never get this to work quite right for me. The center always remained gooey and the edges always got hard, even after trying multiple cooking times/powers. The part that did come out was acceptable though and a welcome change for breakfast besides regular eggs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soften the cream cheese in the microwave in a regular size, microwaveable bowl for about 20 seconds.
  2. In the same bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, sugar sub., vanilla, cinnamon and the egg until smooth.
  3. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to make sure all the cream cheese is incorporated into the batter.
  4. Microwave on high in 30 second increments; turning the bowl 1/4 turn after each 30 seconds until the edges are firm and the center is slightly soft (like a danish). Mine usually takes about 1 1/2 minutes to cook but it depends on the microwave.
  5. Run a small knife or spatula around the edges of the bowl to release the danish. Turn out onto a plate.
  6. Let cool down until warm or cooled entirely before eating.
