Zesty Orange Cream

We normally only find orange cream inside a chocolate selection box but it’s a quick and easy pancake topping too. With or without the Cointreau, this orange cream is delicious and perfect as a topping for our Triple Chocolate Pancake Mix.


  • 1/2 Orange
  • 125g Mascarpone or Yoghurt
  • 3 tbsp Icing Sugar (sieved)
  • Squeeze of Orange Juice
  • 1 tsp Cointreau (optional)


  • Grate the zest of half an orange into a bowl or measuring jug. Add 125g of Mascarpone or yoghurt and mix.
  • Next sieve the icing sugar into the bowl. Add the orange juice and Cointreau to taste.
  • Store in the fridge and serve over fluffy American pancakes with chocolate chips, or as a fruity filling to crepes with fresh orange pieces.


  • Use Greek Yoghurt for a less sweet orange cream.
