Tiramisu Homemade Pancakes - an American Tradition with an Italian Twist
Nothing better then a plate of good pancakes and a warm cup of coffee on a quiet Sunday morning. Put away the Bisquick box and serve homemade pancakes and add an Italian flavor to them. Follow these two simple recipes.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 egg, beaten lightly
1 ½ cups milk
2 tbsp butter, melted
Sift together first three ingredients (to prevent lumps). In a separate bowl, mix egg
and milk, then add it to flour mix, stirring until just smooth.
Then stir in butter. If you want to mix it up, throw in blueberries, a tiny dice of apple,
or bits of banana. Grease a griddle or nonstick pan with cooking spray or a little
vegetable oil. Heat pan on medium for about ten minutes.
Pour batter to form pancakes of whatever size you like.
Cook first side until bubbles form on top, about three minutes; then flip and cook
other side until it, too, is brown, about two minutes.
Serve immediately with butter and syrup or hold briefly in warm oven. Serves four.
Add the Tiramisu Cream
Ingredients for 12 Pancakes:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8-ounce) package mascarpone cheese
2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, mascarpone cheese, and confectioners' sugar until well combined. In a small bowl, dissolve coffee granules in water then add to cheese mixture; mix well.
Place a pancake on a plate then dollop with cheese mixture; repeat layers two more times, ending with a dollop of cheese mixture topping the stack. Repeat with remaining pancakes and cheese mixture. Sprinkle with cocoa, and serve immediately.
