Preparation time: 5 minutes (plus 30 minutes resting time) Cooking time: 15–20 minutes Makes: 12
225 g (8 oz/1½ cups) plain (all-purpose) flour
3 free-range eggs
200 ml (7 fl oz) milk
125 ml (4 fl oz/½ cup) water
60 g (2¼ oz) butter, melted, plus extra for cooking
6 large bananas, sliced on the diagonal
fresh coconut, shaved
honey, for drizzling
3 limes (or lemons), cut into wedges, to serve
If you’ve been to Bali you’ll know these classic crepe-like pancakes
— often served with banana in the centre, a little honey, some fresh
coconut and a kick of lime juice. Feel free to fill your pancakes with
whatever fillings you like or enjoy them as is.
Sift the flour into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. In a jug,
whisk together the eggs, milk and water. Slowly add the mixed wet
ingredients to the flour, combining with a fork until you have a smooth
batter. Strain through a fine sieve. Stir in the melted butter, then cover
the batter and set aside for 30 minutes.
Heat a 16 cm (6¼ inch) crepe pan or large flat-based frying pan over
medium heat and grease with a little butter. Pour 2 tablespoons of the
batter into the hot pan, tilting the pan so you cover the base with a
nice thin layer of batter. Cook for about 1 minute or until golden on the
underside, then flip (with some flair) and cook for another 20–30 seconds.
Slide the pancake onto a plate. Wipe the pan clean with paper towel and
repeat, using a little more butter and batter to make 12 pancakes. Stack
the pancakes in a pile to keep them warm.
Take the warm pancakes, place a few slices of the banana in the centre
of each pancake and roll them up. Sprinkle with the shaved coconut
and drizzle with the honey. Squeeze a little lime (or lemon) juice over
the pancakes and serve immediately with extra lime (or lemon) wedges.
