Pancakes + Mackerel + sausages


1 cup of flour
2 eggs
2 tbsp. of melted butter
Pinch of salt
200 mls of milk
55 mls of water

For serving

Chicken sausages
2 tins of mackerel fillets
1 pepper


In a bowl, sift in the flour. Add a pinch of salt and make a well in the middle of the flour.

Break in the eggs and whisk together. Add the water into the milk and gradually add small quantities while still whisking.

Whisk until the all the liquid mixture has been added and the batter has the consistency of a thin cream.

Melt the butter in a frying pan. Spoon 2 tbsp. of it into the batter and whisk until it mixes together. Use the remainder of the butter to grease the frying pan before making the pancakes.

Heat up the pan then turn it down to the medium. Ladle 3 tbsp. of the batter into the hot pan all in a go, tip it around from sides to sides. This is to help get the base evenly coated with batter.

After about half a minute or when the bottom is golden brown, flip the pancake over. The other side will only need few seconds to cook.

Slide the pancake out of the pan and onto a plate.

To serve

In a frying pan, warm up the sausages.

Drain all the oil from the mackerel, empty the content into a bowl. Cut the pepper and add into the fish, mash together. Set aside

Sprinkle each pancake with caster sugar and lemon. Put the sausage at the edge of the pancake, then followed by the mackerel and roll.


NB: one can use sardine or any other fish. I buy the mackerel fillets from Lidl.
you can also use soup spoon to scoop the batter into the pan.
