Take a look at this picture….is your mouth watering yet? It should be. These tiramisu pancakes were delicious! I used CHEESESLAVE’S recipe for coconut flour pancakes (except I used raw cream in place of whole milk) and layered them with freshly made RAW mascarpone cheese. Because I was feeding this to my 16 month old daughter, I left out the coffee. I know they would taste fantastic with it though.
Follow this recipe for wonderful, grain free/gluten free pancakes. You may want to make them small so you can stack them easily.
1/4 cup strong coffee, organic (optional)
After you make your coconut flour pancakes you may soak them briefly in the coffee.
You will want to make your mascarpone a day in advance
You will need 1 quart of cream, preferably raw
1 packet of Crème fraiche culture (we buy ours from here) or 1 tablespoon buttermilk, commercial crème fraiche, or crème fraiche from a previous batch
Follow the instructions that come with your Crème fraiche starter culture. If your not using a starter culture all you have to do is pour your cream into a clean glass jar. Add buttermilk, commercial crème fraiche or some from a previous batch to the cream. Stir well and cover tightly and place in a warm spot for 20 – 24 hours.
Once you’ve made your crème fraiche, you will want to strain it in a muslin lined colander for 4-6 hours. The longer it strains, the more creamy and thick your mascarpone will be! Mix your mascarpone cheese with vanilla and sweetener to taste. We’re keeping our sugar intake low at the moment, so I just added a little stevia.
Tiramisu Pancakes -
Layer your pancakes with a few tablespoons of mascarpone filling in between (don’t skimp on the mascarpone!) You may top them with real maple syrup, fresh whipped cream (raw whipped cream taste AMAZING) or sprinkle cocoa powder over the top. Serve and enjoy!
