Shrove tuesday! Day for eating sugary crepes in the name of using all ingredients to survive. Thought I’d honor my mother with a remake of her delish spinach pancake. I must of spent an hour traveling up and down gloucester road looking for spinach though. I didn’t realise everyone was onto the recipe. Vietnamese superstore came to the rescue.I did of course expand the recipe; well converted it into a bit of the ‘everything I fancy version’. The result was a surprisingly light cake, must be something to do with all the fillings+layers creating air pockets.You’ll notice a lack of ingredient-quantities; in the spirit of shrove tuesday I think this recipe needs to be done with a certain lack of precision. General good practice I believe for any food creation procedures. So yes, add what you feel is the right amount of what you like and dont stick to my ingredient list!


  1. Mix the flour and salt in a bowl, add the eggs and wisk by hand
  2. Measure out the milk and water in the same container, add gradually to the mix.
  3. Melt the butter in a pan, add a couple of tbsp to the mix and whisk
  4. Use some grease proof paper with remaining butter to line the pan between pancakes.
  5. Add just enough mix to cover your hot frying pan, flip after a couple of min. Flip over and over till you got yours flipping skills down, and both sides are browning.
  6. Create all of the pancakes piling them up on a plate.

Pancake.. cake:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 160c
  2. Ok so as I said use your own ingredient list. Put some ingredients on each layer.
  3. Pancake – filling – pancake – filling – pancake -…
  4. Some favourites of mine were thinly sliced tomato mozzarellamushroomred onion, pre-cooked spinach.
  5. Finish off with some mozzarellasalt + pepper on top.
  6. Place in oven on plate for 15min, mainly to melt cheese and get everything hot.
  7. Voila!
