Tiramisu pancake recipe turns breakfast into dessert

Have you ever had a slice of tiramisu and wished this amazing dish wasn’t just for dessert? After all, the combination of creamy mascarpone cheese nestled in layers of dough soaked in coffee liqueur and topped with a generous layer of cocoa powder looks and tastes like heaven on a plate.

Thanks to its mix of coffee and pastry, tiramisu seems like a natural fit for an appearance at your breakfast table — with a little tweaking. Fortunately, we are not the only ones who have thought of this brilliant idea. We found a recipe for tiramisu pancakes on Kitchn and breakfast just got even better!


This tiramisu pancake recipe takes everything you love from the original dessert and makes a breakfast that could change the way you eat pancakes forever. It comes from Kitchn contributor Crystelle Pereira, a 2021 finalist in ‘The Great British Bake Off’.

Preparing these pancakes takes a little longer to gather the ingredients and mix them up. However, anything this decadent is worth a little effort. Most ingredients are easy to find in your pantry or at the store. However, there are a few things you might not already have on hand, like coffee extract and Mascarpone cheese, and a coffee liqueur, like Kahlúa.


You can get the specific amounts and instructions on how to collect them from The recipe for tiramisu pancakes from Kitchenn. It’s a detailed, step-by-step recipe that seems a little daunting. But, it’s explained well enough to make anyone sound like a gourmet chef without too much fuss.

We also love that the cheese filling can be made up to 24 hours in advance and the pancakes can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for up to five days. If you need to store them longer, follow the recipe instructions to properly freeze pancakes for up to two months.

These tiramisu pancakes seem like a perfect addition to a breakfast or Sunday brunch. People will rave about your cooking skills!
