For the toppings
- STEP 1
Simmer the espresso coffee, caster sugar and coffee liqueur in a small pan until thick and syrupy, about 5-10 mins. Set aside to cool.
- STEP 2
Whisk all of the pancake ingredients together in a large bowl until smooth.
- STEP 3
Put a small knob of butter in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat and cook until melted and foaming. Pour 2 tbsp of the mixture into the pan and use the back of the spoon to shape it into a 8-9cm round disc. Depending on the size of your pan, you may be able to get 2 or 3 pancakes to cook at the same time. Cook for 2-3 mins on the first side, then flip over and cook for another 1 min.
- STEP 4
Heat oven to its lowest setting. Stack the cooked pancakes on a baking tray and keep warm in the oven while you cook the rest.
- STEP 5
Beat the mascarpone, yogurt, vodka and icing sugar together with a whisk until smooth. To serve, stack the pancakes with the mascarpone mixture in between them, then finish with a final dollop on top. Drizzle over the coffee syrup, and top with the coffee beans or chocolate shavings.
