Espresso & chocolate ice cream pancakes

A satisfying pick me up in the morning. What better way to start the day!?


  • Marcel’s Happy Pancakes

  • 500ml warm Espresso

  • 250g Mascarpone Cream Cheese

  • 200g best quality Dark Chocolate, chopped

  • 6 tbsp Icing Sugar

  • 2 tsp Vegetable Oil

  • Chocolate Ice-Cream


Gently melt 150g of the chopped chocolate with the vegetable oil. Reserve the remaining chocolate.
Warm 6 of the hotcakes according to the packet instructions. Allow to cool a little.

Place a hotcake in the centre of a plate. Spoon over a sixth of the mascarpone cheese and then sprinkle with some of the reserved chopped chocolate and one tablespoon of icing sugar.

Dip a cold hotcake into the warm coffee mixture for 3 seconds and then place on top of the mascarpone and chocolate.

Top with a ball of ice-cream and drizzle with the chocolate sauce.
