  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • pinch Salt

  • 2 Tablespoon Butter melted
  • 1 cup Coconut milk
  • few drops Vanilla Extract
  • food coloring
  • Oil

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup Coconut Flakes

  • Add the dry ingredients (Flour, Baking Powder and Salt) into a mixing bowl and combine quickly, then make a well into the center and add in the Egg, melted Butter, Coconut milk and Vanilla Essence. 
  • Mix the whole content to a smooth liquid pastry.
  • At his point, you can make 3 equal batches of the 1 base and leave one plain... 
  • ..and color the 2 others with some green food coloring and red/pink.
  • Mix and crumble the suggar cane into the coconut flakes.
  • Heat up a pan, and add about one ladl of pastry. 
  • The pancakes should be very thin so try to spread the pastry as good as possible by turning the pan before it starts to harden. 
  • Cover the pan and allow it to cook for 1-2 minutes. Take it off the heat (only cook on one side!) and repeat the process with the rest of the noncolored and colored pastry.
  • Place the pancake on a surface, cooked surface down and uncooked up. Add about 1 Tablespoon of filling onto it. 
  • Now fold in a bit of the sides and slowly start to roll it up as shown. Repeat the process with the rest of the cooked pancakes and the remaining filling.
  • Serve still warm or cold.
