  • 8-10 Pancakes
  • 250 g Mascarpone or Mascarpone Light
  • 4 tablespoon Vanilla Sugar or caster sugar +1 teaspoon vanilla extract or seeds out of ½ vanilla pod
  • 1 egg yolk optional (see notes)
  • some unsalted butter or ghee for frying

Cranberry Compote with Rosemary to serve (or any other fruit compote you like)


    • Prepare pancakes as per my foolproof recipe HERE.
    • Put mascarpone, vanilla sugar and egg yolk into a bowl and mix together until smooth using hand blender or wooden spoon.
    • Spread generous tablespoon of mascarpone cream onto each pancake and fold in half and in half again to form a triangle shape.
    • Fry in butter (couple of minutes on each side) until warmed up and golden.
    • Serve warm with fruit compote!
    • Enjoy!


    • Nutritional information is approximate and should be treated as a guideline only.
    • Egg yolk added to mascarpone adds richness and improves consistency but if you are not comfortable using raw egg here, feel free to leave it out.
