Tiramisù Pancakes

 Versiona Italiana è più giu..

Tira (pick) Mi (me) (up) .... did you know that ?
   Typically  ,it is made of ladyfingers (Italian: Savoiardi) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone, and flavored with liquor and cocoa. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of puddings, cakes and here PANCAKES !

I made them  with real espresso ... not instant espresso powder  , and also   used  the Mocha or this old Italian coffee maker .

                It will give you a really big shot of energy ... imagine coffee plus sugar plus chocolate !

                                       Tiramisù Pancakes

For the pancakes:
Partially adapted from Ivory Hut
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder, slightly rounded, sifted
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
a  pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cups sour cream... if you don't have that you can use regular cooking cream or even milk!
3 large eggs
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 small cup of espresso like that in the picture. about 4 tablespoons. or 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder .

For the cream:
4 oz. (125) gm  mascarpone cheese
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar.


-Start by preparing the cream . For the cream, beat all ingredients together and whip until you have soft peaks. Set aside in the refrigerator. (Tip: this cream tastes amazing, and is what really makes these pancakes. If you like generous amounts of cream on your pancakes, you might want to make a double portion.)
-In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make sure the cocoa powder is well sifted, so that it will dissolve evenly.
-In a separate bowl, combine the milk and sour cream until smooth . Add the  coffee ( or your  espresso powder)  and mix well until dissolved. Whisk in the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, mixing gently until you have a slightly lumpy batter but without any large clumps of flour. -If batter is a little runny, add a tablespoon or two of flour. I like to transfer my batter to a measuring cup or something else with a spout, for easier cooking.
-Let the batter sit while you preheat your griddle. When griddle is hot, drop batter in portions desired (1/4 cup for regular-sized pancakes) onto the greased griddle. When bubbles come up and edges look cooked, gently flip to cook the other side. Once pancakes are cooked, transfer to a plate. Continue with the remaining batter until done.
-To serve, dollop a generous amount of the cream in between layers of pancakes. Top with more cream, and then top with shaved chocolate, or a light dusting of sifted cocoa powder.
P.S it will be FANTASTIC when cold!
