Preheat the oven to 300F/150C. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
Beat in the egg and sugar until totally combined. Make sure you beat thoroughly to remove all the cream cheese lumps.
Melt about ½ teaspoon of butter into a small frying pan over a medium heat and swirl it around so it coats the pan.
Take ¼ of the pancake batter and pour it into the hot pan. Pick up the pan and tilt it around so the pancake batter spreads out over the whole pan.
Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the underside of the pancake is golden brown. Flip over and cook on the other side for an additional 1-2 minutes, until that side is brown, too.
Place the pancake on a plate and keep in the preheated oven whilst you cook the rest of the pancakes in the same way.
