I'm not sure you did anything wrong...I tried this once during induction, and hated it. Way too spongy and eggy for me!

I make a version called the Mockalate Danish

2 oz soften cream cheese
1 egg
1 pkt. splenda
2 tbsp Vanilla Protein Powder
1 1/2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 tsp dessicated coconut flake (for top)

Mix all ingredients except coconut with a whisk. Sprinkle top with coconut. Microwave for 1 min 12 seconds. Top w/ spoonful of homemade whipped cream.

If I use Special Dark Cocoa, I add 1 tbsp of Davinci syrup - Irish cream or Kahlua are great in this.


Another great version someone here came up with:
Flax Cereal
2 tbsp golden flaxmeal
2 tbsp regular flaxmeal
2 tbsp almond flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
*2 tbsp banana Davinci syrup
*1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Whisk all in a serving bowl. Microwave for 1 min 15 seconds.

Top with "Butter topping"
1/2 butter - 1/2 coconut oil
1 packet Splenda
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Also tried...**
2 tbsp raspberry davinci's
1 tbsp fresh blueberries

or
2 tbsp white chocolate davinci's
2 cut up strawberries or 1 tbsp sf strawberry jam

When I started this I couldn't eat Jello, pudding, mousse or any eggs. I've had texture issues my entire life. I started with the Mockalate Danish first and loved it. After that I experimented and moved to the flax cereal. I ate that for weeks. I'm not brave enough to try a custard yet but perhaps eventually.

I don't know exactly what recipe you used but I hope this helps and maybe you'll find one that you do like. I'm very grateful for these boards and all the great ideas ppl have come up with.

I went through a spell where I made them all the time. I do not like the microwave version because it is much spongier and just gross. If you check the recipe room and make the stovetop version, they are much better. Very thick and I do find they taste different. It is a bit messier so I would triple all of the recipe ingredients and then use an entire block of cream cheese and make 3 at once(it really makes 4 good size servings). I do not recommend eating it warm. I would make them at night and refrigerate them overnight. In the AM put a lil squirt of SF maple syrup on it. Tastes pretty good.

I only like it if the center is still molten. Then the rest is soft and creamy and not spongy.

Maybe you're using too many eggs and not enough cream cheese?

This was discussed at length, in this thread. Apparently, it involves cooking it longer, at a lower power setting?

For some reason, I can't see the picture that she's displaying in the recommended thread and I sure wish that I could because I've had nothing but disaster too when trying to make these too.

i think the secret to perfect mock danish is to cook it on the stovetop. that way, you can stir and stir and keep it creamy and not like a solid mass of sweet egg. then i put in a little bowl and refrigerate for a while. add a little sf jelly and its really good.

Hi,

Davian I tried your Mockalate Danish..this morning...It was very good..thank you..It
was very similar to a 3 minute chocolate cake without the flours, etc..thanks..

And, I agree with the rest of you..the regular Mock Danish is very good when it is
done on the stove top..yumm

Never tried mock danish on the stovetop, but I only like it microwaved when the cream cheese is increased... tastes more like danish filling, then.

I'm glad you liked the version Carolyn and maybe if someone sees that you liked it - they'll try it too. I love these as an occassional alternative to eggs every day. I want to thank you for the Muffin Top Danish recipe.... omg it's fabulous! For anyone making these mock danishes, you should seriously try Carolyn's recipe - it's in my top 3 all time breakfast favorites. Not that I'll ever give up low carb but I would make them for sure regardless of my woe.

Cinnamon Cheese Danish Atkins Rolls
Originally posted by CarolynF

This is one of my favorite breakfast things. I hadn't made it
in a while, so I pulled it out..They are wonderful and if you
make it with liquid Splenda or a sugar alcohol, you can get
the carbs down to 2..otherwise they are about 4..because of
the Splenda's filler..or you could probably use the little packages
3=the sweetness of 1/4 cup. This recipe is from Aussie LC Gourmet..

Pastry portion:

3 extra large eggs, separated (reserving 1/2 of one yolk for filling)
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 cup granulated Splenda or 3 pkgs. of Splenda..or other
sweetners
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 Tbs. ricotta cheese or sour cream

Filling:

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 egg yolk (from above)
1/4 cup granulated Splenda or 3 pkgs, etc.
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
you can add lemon, almond, orange, raspberry flavorings,
if you want to this filling-about 1/4 tsp

Pastry directions:

Separate eggs, putting the whites in a large bowl and the
yolks in a medium bowl. Take 1/2 of one yolk out and put it in
a little dish to reserve for filling. With your electric beater,
whip whites and cream of tartar until very stiff.

Add sour cream or ricotta, cinnamon, sweetener to the yolks
and beat well until smooth

Gently fold yolk mixture into the whites, using a big spatula,
being careful to get it all blended well. Then Spray a cookie
sheet or muffin top pan (the best way), and plop 6 equal
mounds of batter to make 6 Danish. Make an indent
on each mound and fill with filling. Bake about 25-35 minutes
at 300 until golden brown. Remove, cool and enjoy

Filling: Microwave cream cheese until soft. Remove and add
the remaining ingredients. Stir and and fill each danish with a spoonful of the mixture.
