Immediately the pancake has been flipped, add the filling

I forgot to make pancakes yesterday (Shrove Tuesday) so thought I would make amends. Not being sweet-of-tooth, I thought a savoury version would be nice.

It was!

These quantities make about 6 to 8 pancakes using a large frying pan.

Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 180° C (350° F - gas 4), [fan oven 160° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour] and line an oven tray with greaseproof paper.
  • That is quite hot but it also helps to melt the cheese while the remainder are being cooked.


  1. Grate the cheese, mash the tuna and add a grind of black pepper.
  2. Sift the salt and flour into a large mixing bowl. Hold the sieve high so the flour gets combined with lots of air
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it.
  4. With a spatula mix the eggs and flour together
  5. Ideally with an electric hand mixer, gradually add the milk and water mix whilst whisking. Your goal is a smooth batter with no lumps or stray bits of flour
  6. There is no need to leave the mixture to stand, make the pancakes straight away
  7. Heat the butter in a heavy frying pan, swill it around so the pan is well oiled but not dripping in fat. Pour the remaining butter into a plate to use for the remaining pancakes.
  8. Or you can use an oil spray, just enough oil to lightly coat the pan for each pancake.
  9. Use 2 tablespoons of batter mixture per pancake, dolloped in the middle of the pan and instantly swirl the pan around to distribute the batter around the whole of the pan
  10. Cook for about 30 seconds on the first side, flip over and immediately add a little tuna and grated cheese. Cook this side for about 20 seconds then roll up and keep warm in the oven whilst you cook the remaining pancakes.
  11. Dab a little more butter on the frying pan or a spray of oil before every fresh pancake.

Serving suggestion

These were nice with sliced tomatoes and a green salad.
