Serves 1 – 2

    Coffee Pancakes:

  1. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and blend or whisk until smooth.  Casein powders can vary in the degree to which they absorb moisture, so add a little extra coffee or water to thin out the batter if too thick.
  2. Spoon one-third of the batter onto a non-stick crepe pan.  If you need to, use a little non-stick spray or brush with butter or coconut oil.  Cook until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip it over an cook until done.  Repeat for another two pancakes.
  3. Cream:

  4. In a bowl, whisk together all the cream ingredients until smooth.  You don’t need a mixer.  A hand held whisk is all that you need. You can make the cream ahead and store it, covered, in the refrigerator.
  5. Assembly:

  6. Place one pancake on a serving plate.  Cover evenly with one-third of the ricotta or mascarpone cream.  Add the next layer of pancake followed by cream until you have completed three layers.
  7. Sift the cacao evenly over the top and serve.

Tips and Tricks

Coffee Pancakes Ingredient

Optional: feel free to add a little liqueur or brandy to the pancake batter for extra flavour. You will need about 15 millilitres so reduce the amount of coffee by the same amount or add less alcohol in addition to the coffee. The alcohol will cook off as the pancakes cook but you will have to account for its contribution to net carbohydrates.
