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.
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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Leave the pancake between 3-5 minutes. If you are unsure, simply lift the side up and have a quick look underneath.
- When cooked, place on a chopping board and cut the sides off in a straight line to make a square shape.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- finally melt a small bowl of chocolate to use as dipping sauce!
