Pancake Tiramisu

This delicious pancake tiramisu recipe is testament to the versatility of our pancakes. The pancakes lend this traditional Italian recipe a lovely chewiness and work so well with the richness of the mascarpone and the depth of the coffee. This is one to impress the guests!


Makes 4 generous servings or 8 small

  • 300g mascarpone

  • 125ml cream

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or paste

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 225ml strong coffee

  • 8 Marcel’s Happy Pancakes

  • Cocoa powder to dust


Put the mascarpone, cream and the vanilla into a small bowl and mix well to combine, making sure you get rid of any lumps.

Separate the eggs and put the yolks into a bowl along with the sugar. Beat until pale and fluffy then add this to the mascarpone mixture and mix well. Put the whites into a separate bowl and whisk until stiff peaks form. Spoon a third of this mixture into the mascarpone and gently fold in. Add in the remaining egg whites and again fold gently in.

To make the tiramisu, spoon a little of the mascarpone mixture into 4 glasses then tear apart the pancakes and arrange them in a single layer, don’t worry if they overlap a little, then pour over the coffee. Repeat with the remaining ingredients then dust with the cocoa powder and refrigerate for a few hours, or even overnight if making ahead of time.
