For the pancake batter:

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

For the chocolate filling:

  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbs whipped thickened cream
  • 100g melted dark or white chocolate
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)


To make the pancake batter:

  1. Sift flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the salt, vanilla extract, maple syrup, melted butter and the egg.
  2. Slowly pour in the milk and mix well until the batter is smooth.
  3. For best results, rest in the fridge overnight or at least 30 minutes before cooking.

To cook the pancakes:

  1. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a little bit of oil.
  2. Tilt around the pan and then pour in a ladleful of pancake batter.
  3. Swirl and tilt the pan so that the batter spreads into a thin layer to form a crêpe.
  4. Cook for about 1–2 minutes and once bubbles start to form, flip, then cook on the other side for another minute or so until golden.
  5. Repeat until you have used the whole batter.

To make the chocolate filling:

  1. With a whisk, mix half of the whipped cream into the chocolate and maple syrup then gently fold the other half with a spatula.


  1. Slice edges of each crêpe to make them square, then place pancake on a clean kitchen towel.
  2. Pipe a line of chocolate filling on the edge of each crêpe.
  3. Place fruit along the chocolate filling.
  4. Carefully roll up pancakes to about 1-inch diameter.
  5. Place the sushi rolls in the fridge for 30 minutes or until chilled.
  6. Using a pastry brush, glaze the rolls with maple syrup and sprinkle with desiccated coconut.
  7. Trim edges of rolls and slice with a sharp knife into 5–6 pieces and serve.

This recipe makes 8 deliciously sweet sushi rolls, which are then cut into 40 portions.
