Tiramisu Pancakes

Serves 4

Pancake Ingredients

  • 280g plain flour
  • 450ml whole milk
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3 large free-range eggs
  • 3 tbsp good quality cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp instant coffee
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch sea salt

Cream Filling

  • 240ml double cream
  • 115g mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tbsp Tia Maria
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Toppings

  • Coco powder
  • Handful toasted almonds

Method

  1. Firstly, make the cream filling. Beat all of the ingredients in a medium bowl and whip until you have soft peaks. Set aside in the fridge whilst you prepare the pancakes.
  2. In a large bowl, sift the flour and cocoa powder.
  3. Add the sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the milk and instant coffee powder until fully dissolved. Whisk in the eggs, melted butter and vanilla.
  5. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, mixing gently until you have a batter without any large clumps of flour. If batter is too runny, add a tablespoon of flour.
  6. Cook the pancakes on a hot, greased griddle pan. When bubbles appear and the edges easily come away from the pan, flip and cook the other side.
  7. Once the pancakes are cooked, transfer to a plate. Whilst warm, layer the pancakes with a generous amount of the cream filling and dust with sifted cocoa powder.
  8. Add a handful of toasted flaked almonds for a delicious crunchy finish and serve on a beautiful plate.
