  • 4 thin sweet pancakes about 18 cm / 7 inches across
  • For the filling:
  • 250g / 9oz small strawberries
  • 125ml / ¼ pint / generous 2/3 cup double (heavy) cream
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 4 mint leaves


1 Preheat the oven to 200°C, Fan 185°C, 400°F, Gas 6.

2 Quarter the strawberries (if using frozen, drain off any excess liquid). Pour the cream into a bowl and lightly whisk.

3 Spread a little cream over each pancake. Scatter over the strawberry pieces and drizzle over some maple syrup. Put a mint leaf in the middle of each pancake.

4 Roll the pancakes over the filling and lift into an ovenproof dish, arranging them in a single layer.

5 Cover with foil and put into the hot oven. Cook for 15 minutes, remove the foil and cook for a further 5 minutes until cooked through.
