  • 1 cup of Wholemeal lupin self-raising flour.
  • ½ cup of water
  • ½ cup cream
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1kg cooked Pork belly – sliced.


  • 1 cup spring onions sliced
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 cup Char Sui (Chinese BBQ Sauce)
  • ½ cup finely chopped red chillis
  • 1 cup finely sliced carrot match sticks
  • 1 cup torn coriander leaves


  • Combine water, cream, eggs, salt and pepper and whisk together in a large bowl.
  • Add the wholemeal Lupin flour and whisk together until you get a smooth batter. Pour into a pouring jug
  • Heat a non-stick plan on a low to medium flame.
  • Add a teaspoon of olive oil or vegetable oil in a pan, ensuring it coats the whole bottom of the pan.
  • Pour 2 tablespoons of batter into a pan. Using the back of a tablespoon, spread the batter out thin approximately 10cm wide.
  • Cook for about 2 minutes until the batter starts to bubble, you only want a light brown colour. If you over cook them, they will be hard to fold. You are not after traditional pancakes, you are after more of a crepe consistency.
  • Flip the pancake and cook for another minute, continue until all the batter is done.
  • Place the pancake into a container with a lid so they stay soft and pliable.
  • While you are cooking the pancakes, in another non-stick plan on a low to medium flame.
  • Add a teaspoon of oil to the pan ensuring the whole bottom of the pan is coated in oil.
  • Place slabs of the pork belly and cook for about 3 minutes each side. They should get nice and crunchy outside.

To serve
Set out an assembly line for your guests of all the garnishes, allowing them to grab a pancake, put a piece of pork on one side and add all the garnishes they fancy on top.

Fold over the pancake and enjoy!
