Happy and Blessed New Year to all my friends! May God Almighty bless us all bountifully in 2015!
I’ve made cannolis. Been there, done that! too much work. I still enjoy good cannolis every now and then but at home, I try to satisfy my craving for cannoli with foods like this. Because Cannoli cream, no biggie. I always have ricotta and mascarpone cheeses on hand. So I can make that in a jiffy. And I have used prebaked phyllo shells earlier. This time, I thought, why not make pancakes? And that’s exactly what this is. Absolutely heavenly! Maybe next time, crepes! Who knows?!
Well, I don’t have pictures of the full platter that I made of these pancakes. just a couple to show you how good they looked. They were much better with a drizzle of warmed Maple syrup.
Here’s how I made it.
Cannoli Cream Pancakes
1 cup your favourtie pancake mix
1 cup milk
1 tbsp vanilla
1 cup ricotta cheese
¼ cup mascarpone cheese(I tried to cut down the fat from this cheese, that’s why I am using less!)
½ cup icing sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tbsp or more chocolate chips
Mix all the ingredients and make about 5” large pancakes.
Now mix all the ingredients for filling, except chips.
Spoon or pipe filling into each panckae, sprinkle some choco chips, roll up and place seam side down on plate.
Serve with dusting of icing sugar or your fav syrup.
