Sushi Pancakes

Last year sometime I made sushi for the first time, it was both fun and delicious! Recently I got the idea to mix the sushi and pancakes. This recipe does not contain any seaweed or raw fish – instead it is a sweet alternative.

Ingredients

For the base:

  • 100 grams of plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 300 ml of milk
  • a dash of oil (I use blob of butter) for frying

For the toppings:

  • 2 mashed banana
  • 1 strawberry
  • 1 kiwi

Method

  1. Begin by making the basic pancake. Saive the plain flour into a large bowl and make a small hole in the center and crack the eggs into the middle. Pour in the milk and whisk it all together until it becomes a smooth batter. Don’t worry if there are bubbles – simply leave in the fridge for a few hours to let it settle.
  2. Begin to heat a large grease proof pan on a medium heat and through in a slither of butter or dash of oil, spreading it round all edges. Scoop a ladle of the mix into the centre of the pan and thinly spread towards the edge of the pan using a spatula.
  3. Leave the pancake to cook for 3-5 minutes. When ready to flip the sides should start to curl up. Test the underside by placing a spatula underneath and move it towards the centre gently. Flip the pancake when ready.
  4. Leave the pancake between 3-5 minutes. If you are unsure, simply lift the side up and have a quick look underneath.
  5. When cooked, place on a chopping board and cut the sides off in a straight line to make a square shape.
  6. Next, chop a banana up and place it in a bowl. Use a fork to mash the banana before spreading evenly covering the pancake square, but leaving an inch at the top and bottom. (*maybe sprinkle coconut flakes on the the banana to add extra flavour and reduce the moisture).
  7. Finely chop your chosen fruit – e.g. strawberries or kiwi – into “sticks” and lay them in a row across the the bottom of the mashed banana.
  8. Place tin foil onto the chopping board and pull the pancake onto the foil. Use the foil to slowly roll the pancake forward. Follow the illustration below for more help.
  9. Use a large knife to slice the pancake into small pieces. Use the point of the knife to pierce the pancake to help begin the slice.
  10. finally melt a small bowl of chocolate to use as dipping sauce! IMG-20160319-WA0022
